Far too sweet and fizzy more of an alcopop than a cider, one half pint may be ok, but any more and it becomes sickly. Poorest cider tasted in a long time and thats since the launch of cidre.

Keg at Sir Walter Scott, Edinburgh Airport. It pours clear pale greenish gold with a tiny white head. The nose is.soft, juicy, sweet apple, pear, melon, apple pie, caramelized sugars and fruit pie. The taste is sweet apple, light tartness, melon, honey, mild sugary, acidity, touch of mouth-pucker with a short, sweet apple finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. It’s a bit sweet for the likes of me, but a getting through a half was no bother.

Bottle from the producer’s own stand at the Good Food Show at Birmingham NEC. Gold in hue. On the sweet side but crisp fresh apples just about manage to balance the sweetness. Quite light and refreshing in the mouth but I wonder if after a few of these (or if it got too warm) the sweetness wpuld become too much. Nevertheless not a bad little easy-drinker.
