Ledbury is an old market town in Herefordshire, England – full of historic inns and pubs, and a beautiful, half-timber Market House dating back to 1617. It sits between the rivers Wye and Severn, surrounded by orchards growing cider apples. My first visit to Ledbury was as a brewer, to buy English hops in the autumn of 2007. I returned in 2011, a newly minted Cider-maker, to meet Tom Oliver. Tom makes traditional cider and perry in Ocle Pynchard, Herefordshire, to my palate among the very best.

The Ledbury Cider is an English-style medium cider – not too dry, not too sweet. A blend of old world bittersweet apples and new world heirloom varieties are fermented with native yeast, adding a bit of farminess to the ripe apple nose.

Bottle at home. Pours brilliantly clear gold with a quickly disapating fizzy white head, no retention. Aroma is apples, honey and light cinnamon notes. Flavor is tart dry apples, light earthy notes and a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

kidmartinek (3658) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Very pale white color. Aroma reminiscent of white wine which only arouses foul memories since wine fermented from unripe grapes leave the most foul smell on the breath. The oakiness helps offset this foulness. Only faint bubbles remain after the pour. The flavor is light past the finish, which has an oaky stab, but its not enough.

Pours a light gold. Aroma of apples, slight honey but a lot of apples. Taste is apples, rich apple presence. Slight carbonation, really drinkable and refreshing with a ton of apples.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 bright pour, short of vibrant. Fairly full nose, lemon and a leathery bittersweet apple skin character, hints of the barn, some alcohol but nothing fusely and overall quite a full, complex structure. There’s mouse here, but by a factor of 4-5 or so less than my last experience with this cidery, and this level won’t bother many. Going beyond the rodent cage there is a nice mix of soft astringency and a harder bitterness, without being harsh. Some green apple and a bit of harsher alcohols but fairly faint. Nice expression of the apples with only a hint of overt fruitiness. Could be great...

Bottle thanks to Adam! Pours a hazy gold with a bubbly white head that starts at the edges and dissipates immediately. Aroma has a good amount of dry apple with a hint of light tartness. Flavor has a similar note of dry apple that combines with a light tartness in the finish.

tap. Pale golden with minimal head. Just a hint of apple sweetness, but still quite tart and dry. Nice balance.
