3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Radiant coppery orange with nil head but evident sparkle. Aromas of orange apple peels and juicy loveliness, flavours of the same with a medium-sweet body that isn’t cloying. Perilously drinkable at this abv and this cider was gone in very short order.
That’s a like in my book.

bottle, bought at the producer’s stall at Abergavenny Farmers Market. Slightly hazy red-golden colour. Fruity nose. Pleasant underlying sweetness with rather tart and dry apples, packed with flavour. Hints of barnyard detectable. A very nice cider.

500ml bottle from Bacchus, Crickhowell. Pinkish-amber in colour with no carbonation. Farty, barnyard aroma with some dry apple fruit. Flavour started with sweet juice and a hint of honey, before some minty green herbs and a medium dry finish, with a touch of accompanying funk. A very unusual and enjoyable cider from a small producer.
