Light amber coloured, clear and lightly sparkling. Light apple brandy aroma. Tangy apple flavour with lots of wood and a little spice.

Smooth and ‘applely’. Very light and of lower ABV than their others. Goes down smooth and easily. Still.

Gwynt Y Ddraig Gold Medal Cider (7.0% ABV, 500ml). A blend of bittersweet and "true sharp" cider apples from Wales, Herefordshire and Somerset, this was the first cider made by Gwynt Y Ddraig. It contains sulphites, but no other additives or sugar. Colour is deep clear golden. Slightly musty, sweet-ish apples and a whiff of honey in the aroma. Medium body, mild carbonation. Palate opens with bittersweet apples, apple skin, with then increasing tannic bitterness, plus beeswax. Finish is relatively bitter, before some sweetness from ripe apples and some mild honey re-appear in the aftertaste. Rather full fruitiness and balancing bitterness are a good combination. Very good cider indeed (8/10).
