As a dry, sparkling cider, this is one of the best all rounders - but it lacks the punch of a real dry, still cider. It has more of a medium/dry taste on the palate. Initial taste is very sharp and punchy but very light bodied and lacks depth. Taste lingers, but faintly and kicks back on after taste swallow. Nice to drink and not scoring 5/5 for me as I’ve had better dry ciders such as Pearson’s, Iford and Crossman’s. this cider is golden and pure in colour. Aroma and smell has a hay tint to it. Cornish orchard dry is light with fizz and 5.2%. Interesting to drink alongside its (better all rounder) Cornish Orchard Gold for a comparison. See which one you prefer? This cider is best had by itself and not on session.
