One of the fizzier numbers, 4.5% so could do an evening on it. Smooth but not packing a massive taste punch.

Update 22/03/20. Now trying the bag in box still version. Amber, clear and still. Light aroma of farmyard. Very mild wood flavour and a little watery. It is smooth and certainly better than the carbonated version. Original review if bottled version: Amber colour, slightly hazy with the mildest fizz. I can’t place it but I find the aroma slightly off putting. It is smooth and tastes of ripe apples with a little wood in the back ground. I find it a little watery in flavour.

Clear, to me a bit sweet, not much to it except as a good thirst quencher.

Unique taste - can't really compare this cider to any others. No surprised this is probably the most popular Devon cider in around most of the towns and villages in Devon

Wonderful Devon cider from Sandford Orchards. Beautiful copper colour with an amazing fresh apple aroma. Medium carbonation that doesn't detract at all from the taste, infact it adds to the slightly acidic but not overpowering or unpleasant aftertaste. All in all a great cider that could easily be drunk all day. Very highly recommended 🙂

Got this cider from Aldi. Bottle is has been relabelled with the union flags on it. I prefer the old bottle label to be honest. Gold or light amber colour with light carbonation. Fruit aroma with zero funk. Dry initial taste tanging middle followed by sweet apple, Not particularly complex but much better than the generic mass produced cider. Nice touch on the bottle states the apple varieties which have gone into making this cider: Farmer's Glory, Dabinett, Sweet Alford.

Made from a blend of Farmer's Glory, Dabinett, and Sweet Alford cider apples. Pale copper-coloured, with little aroma beyond a slight fruitiness and a metallic edge. Lightly fruity flavour, with slight tannic bitterness and a little wood in the aftertaste. Inoffensive, if a little bland and lacking in character. Sessionable and drinkable, but not a high priority!

This is a really smooth DEVON cider. Made in Crediton, Devon from Farmers Glory, Dabinett and Sweet Alford apple varieties. I could drink this cider all night - if someone would be willing to fund it.

500ml bottle. Sparkling golden colour, short-lived fizzy white foam head and aroma of tangy apple. Taste is apple, fruity, some tartness, with light wood and drying tannins. Light to medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, dry finish. Quite OK.
