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.

RichardGretton (4250) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2006
Bottle. Golden cider with an active body. The aroma is quite light and slightly vinegary, and the flavour is quite acidic and quite dry. Overall a disappointing cider.

ALLOVATE (2419) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2006
Last drink I tried the night before flying out of Inverness, to London, then onto Brussels. Must say it was nice cider with some good leftfield qualities. Poured into a pint glass, cool but not cold. Lemony yellow in body, clear, with very intermittent and fine carbonation. Softly wafting salty pear nose with a good lick of fresh apples and moist cheese. Dry, very soft on the tongue and creamy come the mid-palate and beyond. Touch of cheese, wood and wheat-like notes precede a firm presence of dry, spicy apples that are well rounded and take hold of the palate. Dries the mouth and throat out with more spicy fruit in the swallow. Not harsh, pleasantly balanced and well crafted, I would have been happy to down more of these on the night but suffered from only buying a single bottle. Very nice. (50cL, code L2025, some supermarket in Inverness?)

scotty (1054) - SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2006
As the label says, this is "Superior Quality" Clean, bursting with fresh apples on the nose and also on the palate. Dry?...yes! but without the unpleasant, harsh tannins found in mass produced "dry" ciders (which bizarrely have sweeteners added to them!) This is surprisingly easy to drink and is so.o.o refreshing! Ends with a clean, fresh appley finish.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2006
Bottled. Nice enough, slighly sharp apple aroma, mildy astringent, soft wood to the end. Not unpleasent, just not ’real’ cider (i.e. stuff with bits in and barnyard smells). But a god intro cider to wean people away from Strongbore and the like.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
Aroma is sweetish, lightly rupe apples. Taste is also quite sweet, infact to sweet for a dry cider.

harrisoni (13780) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2006
500ml bottle from Tesco. I wouldn’t disagree with anything that has been said by the other reviewers, but ultimately I did not like this. Golden colour with bubbly white head. Not keen on the aroma that does have apples but also nail varnish too. OK in mouth, but I’m not a fan of the underlying sweetness. Apple and wood finish, that is also acidic and dry. Perhaps I wasn’t in the best of moods due to the fact that I drank this whilst my train was delayed by over an hour by a tree on the line, but still, I wouldn’t have this again

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle. Like the aspall premier cru (which I tried after this) made without addition of sugar or concentrates. Despite this a very easy going slightly characterless cider which is however a league above the glucose wines. Fruity and off-dry with some honeyish stuff going on. Perhaps a faint hint of tannin and woody aromas.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2005
Golden with no head and a faint silvery mist of cloudiness. Slightly sour apple aroma with a little vanilla. The taste was delightfully crisp and sour with a deep, comforting background sweetness. As someone who has never been a regular cider drinker, this is what I always imagined decent cider would be like.

leaparsons (8102) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2005
Bottle from "The Offie". Golden with no head. Aromas are dry apple and wood with some musty sourness. Flavours are surprisingly appley and fruity for a dry cider. Some grapefruit bitterness. Woody and dry with something of the farmyard about it. Tastes almost like a traditional cask cider.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle from Asda, High Wycombe. Pours a pale gold with no head. Aroma is apples and a spirity nailpolish. Flavour is dry and chalky with a little fruit and some background sweetness. This isn’t the lambic like draught farmhouse stuff, but this is something rather authentic that probably wouldn’t offend the average person on the street. A good cider.
