COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml bottles.

Sparkling.
Henneys Dry Cider is our best selling cider. Smooth, light and refreshing.
Sweet, appley aroma. Palate has a delicious bittersweet apple character with some spicy bite and a bit of a tannic grip. Very fruity and quite pure, with a nice savoury twist.

500ml bottle. Clear, fizzy orange with no head. OK funky apple tang and balancing sweetness on the aroma. A bit empty on the palate after the initial mild tang. Some red apple sweetness. An odd bit of damp funky yeastiness towards the finish. Not overly dry but quite refreshing. Fully carbonated on the palate. Lingering watery apple aftertaste. Opened gradually as it warmed but always seemed a bit muted.

Golden pour with aromas and tastes of apples. A little tart finish. It was ok.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Had to pick this bottle up out of town, as all my go to shops sold out rather quickly. Cost was about $7. BB: AUG11 Sam Adams imperfect pint glass. Bright golden lacquer color. Mostly still pour. Smell is uninspiring, but thankfully subtle. Warm plastic, boiled apples & table sugar. Taste is better though. Honey, wood, chardonnay-like butteriness. Lip balm. Bitter apple cores & a minor influence from sulfites & bland yeast. Can’t shake some of that plastic. A light tang that doesn’t quite get tart in my opinion. Decent acidity. A bit sweet for a "dry" cider as well. Initial slick mouthfeel turns dry on the finish. Carbonation provides some necessary crispness. Very decent. :)

tommann (2848) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a light golden with little carbonation. Aroma is sweet apples. Sweet apple start, some tartness in the finish, which is dryer, but I was expecting a bit more.

Smells realy nice. Most ciders do, actually, even the poorly made cheap ones. I liked that this one was drier, and not overly sweet. Some weird funky notes, too. Crisp and easy to drink, although maybe a little fatiguing towards the end.

Bottle that I picked up from Sainsbury 21.08.10 and consumed the same evening. This is very welcome after the very sweet Great Divide 16th Anniversary beer, and crikey does this wake the old taste-buds back up. Pours mid gold with medium carbonation. Touch of honey amongst the apples This is lovely & crisp, a very refreshing cider with tart appleskin in the mouth. I’m enjoying this, but I wonder if my enjoyment is being enhanced because of the disappointment of my previous beer? A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Bottle @ home

I can’t understand why this is rated so highly, it really isn’t particularly good to be honest. Pours a golden colour, slightly darker than the average cider, no head. The aroma could stand to be stronger, what is there is mostly apples and sugar. What really brings it down is the flavour; it is almost absent. Flavourless apples with a slight dry finish is all there really is to this one. Mouthfeel is pleasant and it manages to not be watery. Could have been much better.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The look is clear, no head, some legs, and golden in color. The smell is butter, apples, and fruit. The taste is apples, butter, and fruits.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a deep gold, fairly dark for a cider. Well-carbonated, and thus has a pleasant, sparkling mouthfeel. Crisp, fruity and very refreshing, with a neat, dry finish. Rather a good cider.

(500ml bottle) Pours a transparent yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of band-aid, apple, earth, barnyard, wet wood, and sulfur. Flavor of apple, band-aid, and wood.
