James Squire Orchard Crush Apple Cider is a truly refreshing and delicious addition to the top quality range from James Squire. After developing this cloudy apple cider for quite some time, James Squire remain dedicated to using only local grown juicing apples to create the unique flavour of a Cornish farmhouse style cider. Unfiltered; Orchard Crush has a crisp and fresh palate with bucket loads of complexity which finishes with a satisfying medium dry aftertaste.

On tap at The Charming Squire, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings medium sweetness, crisp red apples and almost a little funk. Flavour is along the same lines, with medium sweetness, red apples and a touch of wildness. Well-balanced and drinkable. Decent.

sm89walt (1932) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2016
330ml bottle. A turbid pale yellow with a fizzy and fading head. A juicy sweet red apple style of cider. A little sugary feeling but with a fair mid-palate acidity to keep things fresh. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and moderate length and intensity finish.

I didn’t write down any tasting notes, just an overall score. An ok beer from what I can recall.

Really fresh nose, inviting you to quickly dive in. Cloudy, great balance of sour and sweetness, a fizzy and zesty quencher that enlivens the palate.

danlo (2308) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
345ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s, Hurstville. Hazy yellow colour, white foam head and aroma of fruity apple, hints of citrus. Taste is mellow apple, sweetish, sugary, fruity and abit sour with some light tannins. Light bodied, spritzy carbonation, dry tangy slightly tannic finish. OK.

KeefOz (1467) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2015
BB 27/04/16. Poured a clouded lemony-yellow colour with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma of sweet fresh apples with a possible hint of yeast. Taste initially sweet followed by a green apple tartness. Light body. Crisp and refreshing with a slightly sweet finish but gets a bit sour as it warms. OK.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 9, 2015
on tap at the washtub in stockton. clear pale golden with a thin and shortlived head; sweet but fresh aroma of green appleskins, almost a touch of vanilla; very sweet and syruppy, reminiscent of cottees orange cordial, very faint lemon sherbet in the background; so-so

Schooner on tap in Berrima. Sharp acidic nose. Cloudy green/yellow with lasting thin white head. Smooth apple/caramel taste with sour finish. Clean and refreshing.

500mL bottle BB 06/11/14 Hazy pale straw looking thing. A white head flairs up, but doesn’t persist. Not much on the nose; some fresh apple juice character, vinous yeasty sort of undertones. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, a decent spike of acidity higher than most mainstream ciders to be sure. Palate starts with a touch of sweetness, fleshy apple follows then it turns a bit sour (literally), and there’s a slightly vegetal celery/green herbal sort of note. Finish somewhat abrupt, not what I’d regard a "clean" finishing cider. An attempt at making a mainstream farmhouse style cider, bit of an oxymoron. Not terrible, but seemingly geared towards the masses than serious cider aficionados & craft beer drinkers.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2014
Tap. Pours a very cloudy greenish yellow. Small white head that fades almost immediately. Sweet stewed apple aroma; almost identical to applesauce. Medium sweet-dry ratio. Dry enough to avoid the dreaded stickiness. Strong cooking apple flavour initially with a sweet finish of fresh apple. Decent
