COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When an apple has a uniquely satisfying and distinctive taste of its own, we believe it should stay that way. This is why Thatchers brings you a diverse range of single variety ciders which includes Coxs, a naturally sweet and juicy cider just as delicious and a Cox’s apple. Thatchers has been using traditional methods to produce fine somerset cider for over 100 years.

Jimthechap (1663) - Christchurch, - NOV 16, 2012
As I smelled this cider I was already convinced that this was my favourite cider in the world (so far). My companions sniffed, snorted and fell wide-eyed in love. Gorgeous yellow-gold colour with plentiful carbonation. Aromas and flavours of buttery apple, perfumy flowers, orange peel, caramel and dessert wine. It is like inhaling sweet nosefuls of apple peelings. Cox’s Orange Pippins are such a distinct variety and this expression captures it beautifully.

ClubGonzo (4056) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear near-water-hued pale yellow body with no head and a moderate amount of bubbles, looking almost like a sake or something. Aroma is yellow apple peel, strawberries, mild citric tones and hints of straw. Taste is sweet apple peel tones, apple juice, straw and hints of tart berries in the back. Light body, medium carbonation. Fairly straightforward drinkable cider with little complexity and a sweet/tartness-integration that seems a bit off, somehow. Fair enough, but no winner.

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Some bubbles on top of an almost clear pale golden body. Ripe apples, apple cores and orchard, with a touch of grass and canned pears. It’s quite dry on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Slightly sourish flavor with green apples, some pear and grass. Hints of sulphur. Lasting finish with lots of apples. Quite decent this one, except for the sulphur. 140724

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Cask at the Pommeler’s Rest, JDW, London. Pours a very cloudy, orange-gold with no head. WTH is this? You can barely this is cider. Almost like a golden ale. Very faint apples. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Dry finish, faint dried apples, light dry hay bitterness. Meh. Perhaps this is one to try again.

ComradeK (1035) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, light gold, with a loose corona of froth, which dissipates instantly. Mild, dusty apple skin notes mix with some very faint citrus on the nose. Sweet apple juice is prominent up front, with a touch of lime in support. Medium-sweet apple follows, along with a very faint leathery flavour. Sweet lime lingers in the finish. This is a reasonable cider, if a bit one-dimensional. Nevertheless, it is crisp and refreshing, so it gets the job done, although I would personally prefer a bit more complexity.
