COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle only - available in 500ml bottles.

This traditional cider is made from our finest home grown cider apples and then blended with a small amount of best Somerset honey.
This careful balance produces an excellent medium cider with a smooth, delicate flavour and pleasant aroma. Just try it and see!

Blond color. Nice aroma of ripe apples and vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, woody, ripe apples. Complex end. Refreshing.

harrisoni (13208) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2006
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Crystal clear gold colour with no head. Does smell of apple and honey. Then again I like honey, but I’m not sure it works here. Apple juice aroma before sweet honey takes over. OK in mouth. Sweetish toffee honey apple on end. Dry eventually on finish. Bit too honey dominated for me.

Fin (7254) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle picked up from Sainsburys Kidlington. Aroma of apples and faint traces of honey, colour is golden taste is crisp and very appley but well smoothed out by the addition of the honey. Thought that this was going to be a little sweeter than it was but actually was on the dry side, a very reasonable cider indeed.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2006
Nose of ripe apples and nutmeg. Taste is similar with a little honey and some ripe apple notes, dryer than expected on the finish.

StueyD (1110) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2006
Lightly effevescent golden orange colour, with a distinctive appley aroma with only a hint of sweetness. The taste is also of an appley sweetness, but smooth on the mouth at the finish. Made exclusively with Somerset honey. (Bottle - Waitrose).

leaparsons (7934) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle. Golden, quite still. Aromas are apple juice with a fair amount of zest, has a mellow honey aroma rather than excessive sweetness. Flavours are apple with some woodiness. Dry, without the honey of the aroma. A decent cider.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle. Good cider apple character with woodiness and floral honey. I have a suspicion the honey may have been added after stabilisation/pasteurisation to sweeten the product - it was a bit sweeter than I’d normally like but balanced. Quite a delicate drink which balances traditinoal cider flavour with smoother notes.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2004
I found this quite smooth, some oakiness and with quite a crisp apple taste going through to a honey flavour, quite subtle at first but becoming more prominent later on.

rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2004
Bottle, from Sainsbury’s. Gold, no head and virtualy flat. Typical apple juice aroma initially but with a pleasantly floral sweet honey note developing with time and almost dominating the apples. Thin and citric in the mouth but again the honey and apples are equally prominent, quite oily towards the back of the mouth and with a quite harsh aftertaste from the honey.
