COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium dry cider made from a blend of apple varieties. Mostly bottled but also available on draught in the Wetherspoons Spring 2010 festival at 4.9%

Legend has it that every night, under the cover of darkness, a wily old fox crept out of his den at the bottom of our orchard and tiptoed his way to the cider store to help himself to fresh supplies.
It’s understandable though, once they have a taste, most people can’t get enough of this rather distinctive Somerset cider.

Quite dark coloured for a medium dry cider. Smells of dry, crisp apples but flavour is slightly sweeter. Well balanced, mainly apple flavour with some softer fruit flavour as well. Not much in the way of carbonation which really suits this cider. Nice!

danlo (895) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a clear deep golden amber colour, with a foamy white head that dissipates away and aroma of apple, woody. Crisp apple flavour, juicy sweet with light wood. Slightly watery, light to medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, clean finish. Quite OK.

Deep golden colour with no head and medium to smooth body. Nose of ripe apples. Taste of ripe sour red apples, vanilla and leaves. Light dry finish. Very easy and nice to drink, not too high sugary. Really nice and tasty cider.

dobre, srednio intensywny aromat, jablka sfermentowały dobrze na sok bo sa tu wyraznie odczuwalne w smaku. finisz to polaczenie wytrawnosci ze slodycza. Lekko ciemnawo zolty kolor tego cydru i ladna etykieta moga sie podobac.

Jimthechap (1480) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2012
Orang to yellow gold in colour with aromas of candy sugar, apple chews and blossom. Flavours closely mirror the aroma description with lovely sherbety carbonation. I’m not as big a fan of this as I am the Cox’s from the same cidery but still a fan.
