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!

wheresthepath (1524) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
[500ml bottle from a farm shop somewhere in Devon] Dry and tart at first with a crisp fizz. The honey leaves a lingering creamy sweetness. Very refreshing, yet more-ish. Im no fan of cider normally, but I liked this very much indeed!

StueyD (1116) - 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).

Fin (7267) - 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.

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.

danlo (1077) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear pale yellow gold colour, foam white head that dissipates away and aroma of sour apple, barnyard, honey. Taste is sweet, apple, honey, light woody, oak and barnyard notes. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry slight tart finish. Very drinkable.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2008
Bottle. pale blonde. Oak, honey and apple in the aroma. Swetish apple flavor with persisting notes of oak, especially in the aftertaste. Honey. A considerable dry out effect. Sawdust. Thirst quenching, not too sweet and even some complexity.

downender (6159) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2009
Bottle bought at Brewer’s Droop, Bristol. Lively pour, golden colour and moderate carbonation. Tart aroma of apples with some honeyed sweetness. Flavour was dry, with plenty of apples, woodiness, and yeast, smoothed by the honey, finishing with some more tartness. The honey gave this a bit more character. Good.
