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.

One of the better exported ciders, the Westonís Premium is balanced without losing its sweetness, a touch of oak? aging, but good fruity tartness as well. Fizzy indeed, thin head, but dark and refreshing.

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - 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 itís 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 thatís a plus. The cider is very apple-y, a little oaky, and fairly tart with a mild spiciness.

Not too bad.

ComradeK (922) - 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.
