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.

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 (8054) - 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 (280) - 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.

Pours darker honey in color with a nice white foam that settles into a lasting ring. Crisp dry apple and honey taste that lingers nicely. Props for this not opting to be sweet and surgery like so many US ciders and the newly formulated Strongbows are.

obguthr (4070) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Horse blanket, apple aroma, quite strong. Clear amber. Oak, apple, farmhouse. Good balance, semi-dry. A little fizzy, which magnifies the dryness on the back of the palate. Good.

panzerwolf (76) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Pours clear bronze with little head and moderate carbonation. Overall taste has oak, a little bit sweet and floral, not too bitter.

fidelis83 (2003) - 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.
