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.

Bottled sample. Spicey apple aroma. Pours with a light bronze hue and no head. Well carbonated. Rich, slighty bitter apple flavour. Very drinkable.

Stew41 (1909) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 21, 2016
Commercial grade but clean and quaff able. Quite dry once some front palate sweetness passes and there’s some musty bitterness to finish. Has a few smarts although you have to search for them! (Villa Market 150 baht)

rustbucket0873 (372) - Krikville, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours golden with, light head. Aroma is like a sour, floral, Apple, oak, vanilla, tart. Flavor is light in apple, apple peel, finished with oak. Very dry reminds me of a really dry wine. Overall the aroma is much more interesting than flavor.

Vells (1506) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - MAY 7, 2016
Cant say I am impressed, but worked well as thirst quencher. Fresh apple, apple peel, some acidic level, light sweet, hint of wood. Well balanced champagne like cider, nothing too fancy tho

pivnizub (10085) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle:Golden to deep golden, sparkling, quickly collapsing loose white head; sweet ripe apples in the nose, some faint tannic aromas in the background; moderate sweet flavour with a slight tartness, surely medium bodied, fine carbonation; sweet fruity finish of ripe apples, balanced by a drier and a bit tart aftertaste. Not cloying! Pretty good…

CiderGuerrilla (4) - Hesse, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2016 does not count
Aromas ligeramente a bret y manzanas maduras. Color amarillo tirando a ambar. En boca amarga, dulce sin tampoco saturar. Carece de acidez. No tiene mucha carbonatación. Encaja perfectamente dentro del estilo de Somerset. Buen labelling.

Cunningham (6888) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2015
Clear golden color with a bubbly white head that soon vanish. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and an ok carbonation. Semi dry texture. Lots of apples in the flavor. Some oak and a pleasant acidity. Decent ok cider.
[Bottle from an off license in Liverpool, England]
