COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and Keg. May also appear as Westons Premium Irish Style Cider, or as Westons Cider Ice when served through a special pump which dispenses a mixture of cider and frozen cider ice. Not to be confused with Westons Premium Organic Cider.
A contemporary cider with the classic pedigree of a traditional cider maker. Rich amber coloured with a ripe apple aroma and a medium dry taste. Matured in old oak vats to produce a quality cider with a refreshing, crisp apple flavour. Highly carbonated for maximum thirst quenching; deliciously refreshing served over ice.

CanIHave4Beers (3494) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2012
On Draught at the Hessen Haus
Pours a golden color with a very small head that is actually well retained, which is weird for cider but it’s kind of cool.

The aroma is tart and oaky, some mild funk, crisp apple. The cider is pungent and remarkable smelling at first I had it at an 8 for aroma but I brought it down a point because over the course of the pint the aroma faded till it was really quite boring, strange.

The flavor is tart and fairly sweet, it finishes dry so that’s a plus. The cider is very apple-y, a little oaky, and fairly tart with a mild spiciness.

Not too bad.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle. Clear golden colour. Tart apples, dust, a bit cheesey, some sulphur, not very sweet. Dry and a bit astringent finish. Refreshing and easy drinking, but not very exciting.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2010
On tap at the Wharf. As Premium Medium Dry Draught Cider. A clear, still, dark golden cider. Pleasant aroma of ripe apples, orchard, apple cores and a little touch of fruit syrup. Quite dry on the palate, but not puckering. Pleasant carbonation and full body. Apples of course dominate the flavor, but there’s also a faint spiced touch. Drying, apple finish with a touch of apple cores and fruit syrup. Drinks easy, quenches and is tasting good too. 101216

ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2010
568ml bottle shared with Blockley. Pours a clear dark gold, with, as one might expect of a cider, no head. There is a pervasive aroma of Jarlsberg cheese, mixed with dried apple. Initially it tastes much the same, before a dry, tart apple takes over. The finish adds some sweeter fruit characteristics. Not as good as some other Westons ciders, and the Jarlsberg flavour is very weird, but I do still find this fairly enjoyable.
