COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml bottles.
NOTE: Although named as "Thistly Cross Original Cider 7.2% (Sparkling)" on the producer’s website, the word "Original" does not appear on the bottle labels. Also note that the bottle labels do not clearly indicate whether it is the Still or Sparkling version (which are different).

Our 7.2% Farmhouse Cider is smooth, refreshing and Thistly Cross’ first born. It’s a classic, farmhouse cider made with a blend of Scottish apples. The 6 month maturation makes it refreshing, smooth & fruity.

500ml bottle, Original 7.2%. Yellow golden colour, no head and aroma of tart apple. Taste is sweet apple, followed by some light vanilla notes & tartness. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, low carbonation, slightly dry bittersweet finish. Quite drinkable.

Dunbar Scotland: Thistly cross beer festival. Went to the opening of the cider shed with my wife and parents who live in Dunbar. This is great stuff from a really small producer. Great balance of sweetness and carbonation.

Again a very nice cider, a little on the sweeter side. But again it is naturally fermented no added sugar, and is considered organic in Scotland,

I started drinking real/craft ale after realising halfway through a can of Strongbow cider that I was drinking something which had more in common with a science lab than an apple orchard. That was about 4 months ago and this is my first cider since. So how is it? Well, it’s appley (prob not a word), it’s smooth, sweet (without being cloying) and overall, very tasty and refreshing. I really wish I had bought more. Nice one.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2013
this is a nice, slightly funky cider. undercarbonated, semi-dry. fruity and fairly tart. aroma’s a bit lacking but there’s a lot of funky apple flavor here.
