Hoganís Medium Bottled Cider is a golden, well balanced, slightly sparkling cider with caramel, butterscotch and dried fruit aromas.
Hoganís Bottled Cider is fermented from only 100% fresh pressed English cider apples. Our cider tastes so good because we do not use apple concentrate and we do not add any sugars prior to fermentation. Containing more than 85% cider apple juice our premium bottled cider is made only from fresh pressed cider fruit and precious little else. Hoganís bottled cider brings you the authentic taste of the English orchard.

500 ml brown bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.4%. Pale golden colour, moderately sparkling. Pleasant aroma of sweet eating apples and cider apples. Zesty and medium sweet flavour of cider apples and eating apples, just a hint of oak and sulphites.

Liamrua (49) - Waterford, IRELAND - OCT 20, 2014
500ml bottle from Redmonds of Ranelagh, 5.4% Aroma is tart, oaky with an intense ripe apple scent that is overpowering anything else coming through. The real winner here is the surprising taste and balanced palate. The taste is sweet and balanced with hints of wood, slight acidity. There is a lovely light carbonation on the tongue and a fabulous long lasting taste. The best cider Iíve had to date.

GoufCustom (930) - HONG KONG - AUG 14, 2014

500 ml bottle at abv 5.4% bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Clear golden colour; Near zero head and almost no foam, no lacing with very slight, slow-rising carbonation; Tart and sweet aroma of apple juice, with mustyness, yoghurt, light sugar, light alcohol, wood and tannic; Fairly sweet and quite tart taste of thin apple wine, with quite strong tannic, musty cellar, soda, alcohol and very light yoghurt; Light body. Thin but slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is close to light sweet Cider. The apple wine is still thin by Cider standard, but a lot thicker and better than its Dry Cider. Light sweet balanced by pretty strong yoghurt tartness, notable tannic and booze. Despite its thin body, it tastes pretty goodÖ Wet after taste, Tart and water-thin to mouth.

Comments: After the poor Dry Cider I had last night, this Medium one has better Cidery base, no odd tastes and with some good tannin and tartness to show. Right on the decent line, and if it has more apple body, it will fare better. Drinkable but just okay for now.

thirstyrabbit (1254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle 5,4%. Golden body, minimal head. Aroma has sweet apple jam. Taste has sweet ripe apples. More on the sweet side than dry. Juicy finish with sweet apples. Rather sweet but never cloyingly sweet so it maintains a good refreshing character.

BillKismet (3407) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bronze gold, with mild carbonation. Pungent nose-- vinegary and dusty and of old apple and leather. Horsey. The flavor is not quite so sharp, but still carries the qualities... long-aged apple, leather,touches of vinegar, as if aged in a treasure chest buried for decades beneath the sand.

Nice tarriness and heaviness in the aroma. Oh, the sweetness! Itís nice. Good apples. We conclude that it has nice apples.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a nice golden color with a decent clarity and lots of very tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is really nice, itís got wet limestone, some apple but without being overly fruity in any way, and some green wood.

The flavor does have a touch of sweet apple flavor up front, but itís all very well balanced out with a dry finish & some nice apple skin bitter notes, so it doesnít come off as terribly sweet at all. The acidity is bright and the cider has a really enjoyable lime-stone-y flavor to it. Not unlike a mildly sweet Vihno Verde, fruity with subtle layers.

Iíve been pretty well impressed by both the Ciders Iíve had from these folks.
