Very pale. Almost champagne coloured. Some woody dryness in the aroma. Also a dry taste but refreshing and lightly tart. Very easy to drink. Doesn’t feel like 7.2%

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. clear yellow, no head.
fresh apple aroma, some fruit peely bitterness, and the alc is also makings its presence, which i actually don’t think is a plus. flavor is quite bitter, fruit peel, faint apple, very dry, very bitter, the apple flavor is quite clean, but the bitterness is front and center. Interesting brew, i’d call this an extreme cider, due to the very dry and very bitter flavor profile.

500ml bottle from Hereford Cider Museum. What a great cider this is! God bless you Sheppys. This has a wondrously crisp tannic bite with a beautiful fruitiness that smacks you in the chops with a powerfully complete cider taste, and a dry finish that leaves you begging for more. Awesome stuff.
