3.7
harrisoni (19338) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle from the excellent The Bottle Shop drunk at home. Clear deep old gold with thin white head. Drunk whilst listening to Aphrodites Child. Dry, structured, tannins, character, all you would want from a cider and this is quickly becoming my favourite cidery. Wow, just so well balanced yet full of character. Really quite wonderful. Lovely cider, good fruit, some sweetness from the apple juice but contained nicely in a subtle tannic glove.
