COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Orchard Cornish cider has a light golden, pale straw colour with a distinctly fresh apple aroma. A pleasing bitter-sweet body is finely balanced with a fresh apple flavour, leaving the palate clean and refreshed.
Orchardís impressive taste is created from local cider apples such as Tommy Knight, Hockings Green, Dabbinet and Yarlington Mill along with the better known dessert varieties Bramley and Discovery. No artificial sweeteners or colourings are used.
Great care is taken in the selection of fruit, and a long cool fermentation during the winter months encourages clean fruit flavours. Triple filtration removes residual yeast and provides a crisp, bright, refreshing cider.

From keg at the Orange Tree, Chelmsford on 3 February 2011. OK, I couldnít resist the tick. Pale gold colour. I was amazed to see from the commercial description that this was not artificially sweetened as I found it teeth-rottingly sweet. I wonder whether it is sweetened with unfermented apple juice (as the relatively low ABV might suggest). On the plus side there is plenty of juicy apple flavour. Precious little traditional character however. I assume itís designed to compete with the industrial ciders, and itís better than that, so I guess itís hard to be too critical. But I canít say, all in all, I found it a very enjoyable experience.
