Cornish Orchards Gold - Dry
On tap at Sir William’s Pub. Pours just slightly hazy golden color. Nice nose with some cellar notes and some sourness. Taste follows, just a hint of fruity sweetness, cellar soury body. Light and refreshing. Not a fan of ciders, but this one was nice.

500ml bottle, 2013 vintage. Pours a clear light golden colour with no head. Aroma and taste of apples, tannins, slightly vinous and oaky, medium dry finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Can tell this is stronger than typical ciders. Decent but didn’t blow me away.

Cornish Orchards Pear Cider


330 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Very pale cream soda golden colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; No lacing with barely notable slight carbonation; Tart aroma of white wine, with strong yoghurt, wood barrel, faint sandalwood, light apple, and tannic; Mid to light sweet taste of pear wine, with strong yoghurt tartness, ligth white wine, alcohol, light sugar, barrel and pretty strong tannic; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is white wine with strong yoghurt, only traces of apple fruitiness, not pears. Pretty dry yet with some lean sweetness for balance and notable tannin. Nice!... Quite dry after taste. Winey and tart to mouth.

Comments: Unlike most perry, this one smell and taste a lot more like a medium dry cider, with strong yoghurt and light white wine for a lean, clean and pretty classy drinking. Well worth trying!

Cornish Orchards Gold - Dry
Keg at Foodies Fest Syon Park as Cornish Orchards Gold Cider, 4.5%. Pale yellow, translucent and sparkling with no real head. Aroma is quite light yet a little sickly with elderflower and apple notes. Body is quite smooth despite fizzy carbonation. Taste is semi dry apple peel, sugary, faint lemony notes with a long tangy finish. Ok.

Cornish Orchards Alcoholic Ginger Beer
First of all: This is not a beer. It is a "ginger beer", an alcoholic soda / sugar drink with real ginger, but without any malts, as the likes of Hollows & Fentiman’s, Crabbie’s etc. Nor does it appear as a cider/perry, unlike the other products of Cornish Orchards. 500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4%. Nearly colourless, sparkling. Aroma of ginger. The flavour is way too sweet and sugary, but has a tolerable amount of ginger, with a moderate burn in the aftertaste. Should not be rateable on RateBeer.

Keg at the Spade Oak, Bourne End. Pale gold with a moderate fizz. Slightly sweet but tangy apple up front, then a touch of spice before a lightly dry, apple peel finish. Not a bad cider, certainly more tasty than many of its compatriots.

Cornish Orchards Wassail - Mulled Cider
Served warm. Not really a cider drinker, but it was ok. Apt, considering the season. Drinkably sweet initially, though there’s an odd flavour that rests on the tongue if you take too long to swallow. Not a fan of the consistency, but that might just be a cider thing.

For a cider I expected a stronger aroma. You can taste the apples, desert apples . Also a taste or pears. Dry finish. Not too sweet and not too sour just right.
