A medium-dry, single varietal cider made with the Tremlett’s Bitter apple variety.

A fine old Somerset cider apple. Its early ripening deep red streaky fruit produces juice with a high tannin content, the mark of quality found in traditionally made cider. Sheppy’s Tremlett’s Bitter is rich in flavour and medium/dry in taste.

Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, fully diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy apple, light horse blanket, wood and vanilla notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light light acidic with a long to average duration, wood, dry. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. [20110404]

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear golden with a tiny head. Extremely concentrated and very fresh apple aroma. Medium in body and low in carbonation. First some acidity and then a bitterness that comes creeping to give a rather astringent finish. But quite lovely - and again with the alcohol amazingly well hidden. 190208

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours clear pink-gold with a bubbly head. The nose holds ripe apples tinged with berries. Sweet, lightly dank and musty, very dry, with some bitter apple skins, moderate funk. Medium bodied, finely carbonated. Dry and funky on the finish, with some ripe and leathery apple character. Nice one.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2005
Bottle. Golden with slowly rising bubbles. Aromas are apples with a red wine dryness, also wood. Flavours are not so apple orientated as the aroma - drier and woodier. Lots of tannin as the commercial description suggests. Tastes as good as the decent cask ciders.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle, glorious golden coloured cider, that is wonderfully refreshing with a great appley and woody aroma and a taste of wood in this pleasantly medium/dry but erring more towards dry cider, very nice indeed.

500 ml bottle courtesy of geth_in_beer. Thanks again. (I’m only now realizing how many beer you dragged over for me). Orange-golden colour. Beautiful earthy/dusty aroma over a sweet appley aroma. Distinct apple skin tannins in the nose as well. As it warms a beautiful fragrant floral character comes from underneath the tart acidity and soft funkiness. Lightly stinky cheesy funkiness over the more normal horsey character and wild yeastiness. Some soft vanilla notes and a very dry tannic finish make this go down very easily. As it warms, the sweetness comes forth a bit more, but it is still very dry. Lovely cider.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle from ASDA. Clear, deep golden in colour with no head yet plenty of spritzy carbonation. Sharp fresh apple aroma. Remarkably easy drinking given the ABV, with plenty of dry apple flavours, a touch of oak and a long, dry finish. An excellent drink on a summer’s day.
