yummy. a tasty little cider. It has a crisp effervescents to it but with hint of scrumpy funk on the nose, a slight dryness to the finish and a definite smoky hint. All in all this is a well balanced cider that has a good character. At 7.4% it's not for a full day session...unless it is a special occasion. It has just won an award.

Punchy little number, carries through on taste and smells like cider should. 7.4 so not a session drink but quite refreshing.

Another hopped cider from Friels, made from the first pressing of a blend of Red Falstaff, Katy, and Windsor apples. This lacks the hoppy fruitiness of the less alcoholic Hop Infused 2015 Vintage I tried earlier. Slightly sour and a hint of bitterness from the hops make this a less satisfying drink, for me.
