COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stowford Press Medium Dry Cider has shown tremendous growth over recent years.This very popular cider is suitable for all drinking opportunities. Light, refreshing and fruity with a moderate alcohol content. The success of this cider has allowed it to be made available in a DRY and SWEET version.

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).

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.

On tap at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Fizzy and golden with a pleasing musty aroma. Taste is agreeably but not overwhelmingly sour. Some sweetness, however I would have preferred a drier finish.

Tap at Blackwater Irish Pub, Winterberg. Together with Caesar. Aroma of overripe apples. Clear, dark yellow coloured with no head. Taste is sweet and very fruity (overripe apples) Quite dry finish. Nice.

thirstyrabbit (1076) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2011
440ml can. Golden applejuice colour. Medium head. Light aroma of fermented apples. Taste is medium dry and the finish is pleasantly tart. A bit watery palate but this one is still much better than most of the oversweetened local ciders.

KyotoLefty (6183) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2011
Can. Rather average apple nose, pale gold color with lace. Bland, medium sweet flavor, apple, some spice. Just a touch of tartness. Drinkable and tasty, though not very interesting. Refreshing, not much else going on.

(As Marks & Spencer Cider) Good but by no means great, though compared to the local Estonian chemical-sugar stuff, this at least is made from real apples. Rather weak aroma and watery flavor leads to a dull, dry finish. Nothing compared to the good stuff from Westons (but perhaps the low abv and literally generic labeling is the cause for this?)
