Gold, no fizz. Rather vinegary apple aroma. By contrast, on tasting it’s smooth and creamy with lots of vanilla and a hint of oak.

Bought in 500ml bottle as Morrison’s Medium Dry Cider.
Really nothing to distinguish this from many other ciders on the market but at only £1 per bottle it’s not to be sniffed at.
Dry green apples to the fore. Quite fizzy but not overly.

Cask / Bag in a Box @ Euston Cider Tap. Reading the ratings I’m not entirely sure if this is the same cider but this is where ratebeer directed me. So. This has some pretty interesting flavours with a prominent vanilla character and possibly a little caramel from the oak. Dry, yet smooth with possibly a little rum coming through. Again, a very interesting blend and one I wouldn’t mind re-visiting on my return to the Cider Tap.
