COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

thedm (5158) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 19, 2015
This bottled Cider from a beer Festival poured a head of frothy white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was red apple. The mild citrus semi-dry sour mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of red apple. An OK brew just nothing special.
