Orchard Cornish cider has a light golden, pale straw colour with a distinctly fresh apple aroma. A pleasing bitter-sweet body is finely balanced with a fresh apple flavour, leaving the palate clean and refreshed.
Orchardís impressive taste is created from local cider apples such as Tommy Knight, Hockings Green, Dabbinet and Yarlington Mill along with the better known dessert varieties Bramley and Discovery. No artificial sweeteners or colourings are used.
Great care is taken in the selection of fruit, and a long cool fermentation during the winter months encourages clean fruit flavours. Triple filtration removes residual yeast and provides a crisp, bright, refreshing cider.

On keg at the Red Squirrel. Appearance - very pale golden. Nose - dry apples. Taste - dry apples again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Not too carbonated which is good. Overall - a decent dry cider.

Keg at the Lyndhurst, Reading. Light gold with an annoying fizz. Tastes of very sweet apples and economy apple juice. Surprisingly dry finish, but still leaves some sticky residue on your lips. In short itís like an industrial cider thatís actually had some real apples (albeit cheap ones) added at some point. As such, itís a bit nicer than most industrial lagers. Equally it falls miles short of a decent real lager. A possible stepping stone to get the masses towards real cider, maybe, but not one Iíd want to revisit.

Keg at Tamesis Dock Vauxhall. Short review at work do. Very very pale yellow / green, clear and sparkling. Aroma is light apple, a touch of lime. Body is medium, slight spritz. Taste is sweet watery apple juice. Easy going, no complaints. Nothing complex, but very drinkable.

Drank on holiday in Cornwall June 2014. Clear, light golden in colour. Slightly sparkling. Very refreshing on a lovely summer day.

On tap in The Front, Falmouth, Cornwall. Pale yeloow gold with a very thin white head. Sweet apple aroma. Flavour more acidic apples, more sweetness, quite tart. Didnít do it for me.

Tap at the Half Moon, Windlesham - 24/12/12. Lightly hazed clear golden with no head, carbonation evident. Nose is sweet and sour apples, touch of wood and must in the background. Taste comprises sweet sugars, sweet apples, Appletise. Medium bodied, dryish in the finish.

bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Tap at The Sloop Inn in St. Ives. Pours gold. Smells like golden apples. Tastes like golden apple peel. Fresh.

From keg at the Orange Tree, Chelmsford on 3 February 2011. OK, I couldnít resist the tick. Pale gold colour. I was amazed to see from the commercial description that this was not artificially sweetened as I found it teeth-rottingly sweet. I wonder whether it is sweetened with unfermented apple juice (as the relatively low ABV might suggest). On the plus side there is plenty of juicy apple flavour. Precious little traditional character however. I assume itís designed to compete with the industrial ciders, and itís better than that, so I guess itís hard to be too critical. But I canít say, all in all, I found it a very enjoyable experience.
