Tart apples vie with an almost biscuity sweetness in the pleasant and inviting nose. Clear golden body is quite still with no viscosity or legs on the glass. Juice-like apple flavour is lightly woody and lightly spicy with some notes of brown sugar. Medium-light and fairly dry body is slightly sticky in the mouth. Sampled on tap at Charlie’s Bar in Copenhagen.

Quite sweet with a dry finish. Not a bad cider and there are worse out there, more acceptable than woodpecker or strongbow.

Keg, Pale gold with lots of fizz. Allright sort of cider, decent apple note not too sweet, but give me a beer please.

This was certainly one of the better UK ciders I’ve had in quite sometime. As the name implies, with it being a medium dry, its not too offensive relative to the all too common heavy alcohol aftertaste with most English dry ciders. It drank rather easily was probably a little sweeter than most UK ciders I’ve had. Not sure that I could readily identify the dry aspect of it. Worth trying if you come across it.

I had the draught. Refreshing, but if it was just slightly dryer it would be really refrehing. nice apple aroma. It’s nice, but the finish is quite thin and short.

Nice cider. I had it draught. A little watery but refreshing. A litlle bitter. Very sweet and clear.

I had the Stowford Press ’draught’--some suggestion that this is really just a keg, not a proper draught. The cider is clear and relatively low in carbonation (esp. compared to a Woodpeckers or similar). Tart and mildly sweet, with a finish that hints at a bit of bitterness. A bit limp, in my opinion. (Had at Victoria Arms, Oxford).
