A medium cider made with a blend of apple varieties.

A careful blend of traditional Somerset cider apples and dessert apples. This produces a light, slightly sharp refreshing cider. Pale coloured, medium taste with a light sparkle. An ideal cider for both the home-drinker and for the pub trade. This cider has been fermented and matured in oak.

Sidra tradicional británica. Aromas a vainilla, manzana asada y ligeros ahumados. Color amarillo intenso. En boca amargo dulce, con astringencia típica del uso de variedades amargas con taninos. Nada de acidez y carbónico medio. Uno de los mejores referentes de sidra de Somerset.

Very pale colour. Has a pleasant, fine carbonation. Fairly sweet at first. A light dryness in the finish. Good but a tad too sweet for me.

Gurthnar (4787) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Clear yellow colour. Overall quite typical British cider. No expectional character, but not artificial feeling either. Simple apple flavour and aroma. I do not detect any oak character. Initially rather sweet, but some balancing sourness quickly appears. Moderate carbonation and a rather dry moreish finish. Quite good easy drinking one.
