Farmhouse Cider

Malvern Oak Dry Reserve is a refreshing, balanced cider made from a variety of traditional cider apples, including Yarlington Mill, Harry MasterÕs Jersey, Dabinett and Kingston Black.
With the help of ’mother nature’, Malvern Oak is fermented to 6% alcohol to encapture the full flavour of the wine of the orchards, differing from many other ciders due to our unique blend of bittersweet cider apple varieties.
Malvern Oak Dry Reserve should be served slightly chilled – a great companion to good food or sipped from a glass whilst lazing in the shade.
This natural product is made without the use of apple concentrate, or any artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners.

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours deep golden with a tiny film head. Aroma has lots of sweet apples and a fair oaky note. Very low carbonation, super dry and oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet apples, not really that tart. But there is plenty of dryness, almost drying out my mouth completely. Very nice.

leaparsons (9605) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2009
Bottle. Golden with low carbonation. Aromas are sweet apple and caramel with woody and peppery notes. Flavours are woody, dry and earthy with apple juice. Some citrus sourness. Decent.
Earlier Rating: 10/17/2004 Total Score: 3.3
Straw coloured without excessive carbonation. Aromas are earty apples with some pepper. Flavours are dry and earthy apples without much sweetness - especially the unforgivable sweeteners in some ciders. Some pepper on the finish followed by a very dry and woody aftertaste. A good honest cider.
