BushWalker (12650) said:
Comes in a 750 ml screw-top bottle, with light sediment. Hazy amber, with an aroma combining rich, aged oak and earthy funk. Tangy apple, develops a mineral aftertaste, with underlying oak and strong, soft tannins, which linger on the palette. For me, the aftertaste does not quite live up to the initial flavour or the aroma; I was expecting much more oak. Nonetheless, a very nice cider, utilising fine heritage varieties, as Ross-on-Wye make it their life's work to do.
