I think I am trying too hard to find something good to say about this cider. The best I can say is that there is nothing wrong with it. It's quite drinkable but equally unremarkable.

Lime water in colour, clear with moderate light fizz. Single variety cider. No info given on who makes this for Waitrose. Very little fruit aroma with chemicals. Eating apple flavour. A bit watery and uninspiring.

I really like this. It’s a medium dry cider, which is slightly on the drier side - and a lovely natural sweetness due to it being a single variety cox apple. It has a good nose, light floral and fruity, champagne colour with a light fizz. It’s initial taste is sour, as it is a single variety cox with a medium length. The dryness lingers, which I love in a cider as it adds to its complexity and depth. It’s light acidic It’s slightly lighter on taste (think of a thin tasting granny smith) than other single varieties and other reviewers have condemned it, saying it’s nothing special. I really like this cider - and it’s all down to opinion. It’s refreshing and hardly touched the sides as it went down - and at 6.0%ABV isn’t too strong. I’ve given it 5/5 because it’s a gorgeous tasting dry cider that deserves a good score as it’s a single variety and therefore cannot rely on a blend to convert it into something remarkable. Who is making this for Waitrose? I’ve yet to discover, but will do some digging around to try and suss it out.
