Lovely amber color, with more funk in the aroma than in the taste. This advertises itself as a “Traditional Farmhouse” cider, so you expect a bit of funkiness. This delivers nicely, with a balance of a bit of funk, good body, not too sweet, and a clean finish. At 6.5%, this is a moderately strong cider, but this does not taste at all “boozy”, and is quite a pleasant drink.

Deepish amber colour, soft sparkle, good mix of sweetness and dryness, easy to drink with a good fruity apple taste, not a particularly long aftertaste

Light, smooth apple taste. Still and tastes so light and flavoursome. Have had this from box and bottle. Often very high in ABV, but doesn’t taste strong. By far my favourite cider press I have ever tasted

500ml bottle. Golden amber colour, foam white head that diminishes and aroma of apple skin, woody oak. Sweetish fruity apple flavour well balanced with a dry tartish edge and oaky notes. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, clean dry finish. Very drinkable cider.

Copper colour, with an aroma of barley and apple skin. Lager-like flavour and gassiness, with an apple tang becoming evident in the aftertaste. Drinkable, but the flavour profile just doesn't grab me.
