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.

fidelis83 (1954) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Clear golden pour with a 2 finger, soapy white head that fades quickly to a thick ring, sustained by a fairly high effervescence. Aroma is sweet apple, earthy leafiness, and a little deep berry fruit. Flavor is sweet, musty apples, a hint of vanilla, alcohol, some fusel notes and musty leaves. Light to medium body with an oily feel throughout, medium to heavy, but somewhat soft carbonation and slightly chalky, but still oily finish. Not bad overall, but somewhat watered down tasting and a little heavy on the booziness and fusel notes.

ClubGonzo (4024) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear deep orange body with a small white head and visible bubbles. Aroma is vanilla, banana, apple juice, wood, green apple peel and hints of caramel and straw. Taste is dry apple juice tones, wood, sawdust, yellow apple peel and hints of caramel and straw. Some bitter tannins in the finish. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad, but it feels a bit over-oaked actually, particularly in context to its relatively high degree of sweetness. Still, pretty nice.

Ed5388 (2092) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2014
500ml bottle shared by Pizz5116, "borrowed" from AC Beerfest 2014. Pours a clear golden orange color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of strawberry starburst and sweet apples. Taste of sweet apples, sugar, and absolutely no barrel aged characteristics. Taste like a run of the mill cider.

500 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a thin and fast disappearing white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is plain mature apple with oak. Flavor is much the same as aroma, mature apples and oak. Medium to sweet. Medium body and average aftertaste. Nothing special really, but no faults and well balanced. Easy and pleasant to drink.
