Superb. I’m normally a real ale man but tried this on a visit to Sheppy’s and fell in love with it immediately. Bought two crates home and will make the return 200 mile journey next month to stock up for me and other mates who’ve fallen for it. Strong without the sting - sweet without the sickly. Far too drinkable for the wallet!

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
Light pale yellow with a frothy quick disappearing lacy white head. Smells of juicy sweet apples without any chemical or candy. Just apples. Tart and vanilla. Medium oily body. Tastes very sweet but fully natural with a nice light acid woody bitterness on the dry finish. Nice balance. Refreshing

minutemat (1878) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
500ml bottle from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Pours quite a clear yellow, with a light yet assured vanilla sweet taste. Can’t work out why this got such an average rating.. for a sweet cider this has a great well-rounded blend that really hits the spot.

Fin (7674) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2007
Bottle, SH Jones, Banbury, Oxon, 28-07-07 Poured warm golden with a red blush, little carbonation. Tasted very soft and smooth, quite sweet but dangerously easy drinking, with a baked apple tart type taste the usual crisp and sharp bite was tempered. Nice

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2006
Bottled. One of those dangerously drinkable ciders. Middle of the road flavours, soft mouthfeel, no harsh aftertaste.

500ml bottle. Clear pale yellow colour, thin white foam head and aroma of juicy apple & melon. Taste is sweetish apple with a woody, smokey edge and some melon notes. Oily mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tartness at the finish. Quite drinkable.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2009
Bottle from Tesco. Clear gold in colour with a decent white head and plenty of carbonation. Would echo comments about this being easily drinkable - pleasant sweet apples, with dryness in the finish and a touch of oak and spice character. Another good bottled cider from Sheppys.
