COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml glass bottles.
NOTE: The label carries the subtext "Oak Aged Cider" but there are not two separate products.
Thatchers made Green Goblin cider for Wychwood Brewery which owned the brand. In March 2010 Thatchers Cider acquired the brand from Wychwood under licence. The cider is no longer sold under the Wychwood label.

The Green Goblin from deep in the wood - 100 year-old oak vats, that is.
Made with English apples, and matured in oak vats, Green Goblin cider is a full-flavoured, bittersweet blend, beautifully balanced to give a fresh character with a medium dry finish.

Beerdedone (2933) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of red & green apples, oak and a hint of vanilla. Flavor of sweet apples, woody oak, vanilla and was lightly acidic.

ContemplateBeer (1716) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 8, 2015
500 ml. bottle, at home. Aroma: Pronounced oak; moderate juice sweetness nearly balanced by a marked astringency. Appearance: Goldish copper pour with sparkling carbonation (you can hear this stuff fizzle from your seat!); all those bubbles actually support a thin white cap, which is a cider first for me. Flavor: Juicy, sweet and oaky up front; the interesting astringency of the nose is lost, unfortunately. The finale is pretty abrupt, and dry. Palate: Light body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: I’d drink it again if offered; it has some points of interest, but is a bit out of my price range to be a repeat customer ($5.49 for my bottle).

zach8270 (3810) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2015
(bottle - 500 ml) Gold pour with a fizzy white head. Light apple and lots of oak and vanilla in the aroma. Flavor is very oaky and lots of vanilla with a smooth apple hint and a lightly tart finish.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Pours deep copper with faint effervescence under a thin ring of white head. Off-putting aroma of bubblegum and rotten eggs. Sour, sulfuric taste with a splash of green apple, but the awfulness lingers. Maybe had the feel of mineral water on the tongue but I couldn’t concentrate on palate, I could only suffer through a few sips for the sake of review and then total drain pour. Which is a shame because this was a pint bottle and not what I’d consider “cheap”. My overall-score may be considered harsh by some, but I have not had something this sickening pass my lips since I vomited this past winter due to stomach flu. Glancing at a few reviews below, maybe this particular bottle has been over-shelved... but that needs to be the bottle-shop’s concern, not mine. I would suggest against buying Green Goblin here: ~~~~~~~~ 500ml Bottle, Kenwood Liquors, Oak Lawn, IL.

burg326 (4504) - Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Poured a golden yellow color with aromas of light sour green apples, and some light oak. Flavors matched the aromas, not bad for a cider, but also not what i was expecting, was hoping for some dryness, not the sourness, but still decent.

Stampion (183) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a deep golden, suspiciously so with no coloring listed on the ingredients. Lots of fiz, borderline too much. Doesn't grab you taste wise. Light oak, light sweetness but balanced by dryness. Everything is balanced one step too low. Meh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3973) - Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2015
Pours clear golden with a thick and frothy but effervescent eggshell head. Crisp, slightly sour apple aroma has a hint of oak. Flavor is crisp, slightly sour, slightly sweet - typical, but enjoyable. Texture is somewhat fizzy, and a little thin. Go ahead, gobble it in.

allmyvinyl (6035) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2015
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Pours clear gold, no head. High carbonation. Light apple aromas, not much on the nose. Taste is sweet apple, faint wood notes. Not great to be honest.

SangreSani (180) - Głowienka, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Weak aroma of apples and cereal. Hints of phenols and very slight rag. Clear, light golden color. Tastes like apple juice mixed with champaign. Sweet and sour in the beginning, but it gets dry on the finish. High carbonated.

geologyguy (938) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Very light Apple smell wish it was stronger, fairly dark brown color for a cider, taste is a little strange like artificial or something, slight almost bitter on the finish not a sweet cider, taste is ok off the bat but gets worse as it dissipates... I guess it’s refreshing though
