Spanish Cider. This refreshing medium-dry cider displays the characteristic flavour of freshly-pressed Spanish cider apples, naturally sun-ripened in selected local orchards. Enjoy chilled with a ploughman’s lunch, dessert crepes or eastern dishes - or pour over ice for the extra chill factor!

Bottle at Crab & Lobster, Penang. Clear golden with no real head. Aroma of overripe red apples, tart green apples, light woody notes, a touch burnt and a little funk. Flavour is moderate sweet and light sour. Medium bodied with a dry palate and the burnt aspects giving a little bacon crisps finish. Light carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2015 I’ve had a lot of ciders in my day, and this one honestly tasted like salami. Yes, that’s right the meat product salami. I drank it all because I needed my buzz to continue, but it was hands down the worst ciders I have ever had in my life. I cannot believe the terrible taste of this beer, or how it has such high reviews here. Maybe I got a bad batch or something, but I will never forget how terrible this beverage was, and I will never drink it again.
