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.

Fruity and herbal scent. Rich, clear auburn colour. Quite sweet with flavours of apple, pear, honey, allspice. Medium body with lively carbonation. Quite a tasty cider.

SangreSani (127) - 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 (871) - 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

teorn88 (3489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Backlog rating. 50cl bottle at Caspra tasting at Chriso’s, London. A good cider with average sweetness and good hints of acidity. Certainly exceeded my expectations.

pelli1 (3) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2014 does not count
A very dry cider that starts crisp and with a bit of flavor, but the finish is flat and lacking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (8244) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear golden with white splotchy head and a lot of carbonation. Notes of apple and tart acidic yeastiness in the nose. Tastes dry, with notes of apple, champagney yeast and palate profile, and some woody flavor. Meh.

shoestring (297) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Got red apples coming through. Not too sweet or clawing. Nice one and would recommend. Balanced flavours, but fresh apples to the fore. Seems obvious thing to say , but many ciders are metallic and taste/smell artificial.Slightly different to other ciders in that respect.
