They slowly ferment this juice at low temperature to produce a sparkling medium dry cider, packed full of refreshing, intense apple flavours.

Bottled. A dark golden cider with a thin white head. The aroma has strong notes of apples and some alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of apples, wood, and a bit of vinegar, leading to a quite tart finish.

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle from Sainsburys drunk whilst ironing shirts for work. Clear orange gold colour, no head. Light apple pie aroma. Very light cider apple character which is not unpleasant. Good dryness on the end. Even some dryness attacking the gums which is very good. Still some residual sugar sweetness. Tasty cider and I liked it. The sparkling bit isn’t over the top either.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours golden orange with no head. Aromas of apples, caramel. Taste is also sweet at first, but bone dry at the end. Reminds me of similar stuff drunk in Brittany.

mR_fr0g (8563) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle at home picked up from ummm? Sainsbury’s I think. Clear deep orange coloured pour with good effervescence, and a small off white bubbles. Aroma is medium sweet and tangy, bruised fruit, crystalline sugars, little wood. Flavour is composed of medium sweet apple, light honey, semi-crisp in the finish. Some light plastic flavours. Palate is medium full and a little sticky on the tongue, but finishes nicely. Packs good flavour for a 4% abv cider.
