Well first of all I really love a golden delicious apple. Probably my favourite. This cider is just that - 5 pressed golden delicious apples with no concentrate. And it’s really nice.
Ok, it’s not amazing but it’s really refreshing. It’s got hardly anything under the nose and it’s only 4.5%ABV so I was never expecting much. There are some light floral notes though.
It’s very light in colour, almost clear but with a light champagne look. It’s sparkly too, it has a really nice fizz to it.
This cider is very similar to Kopparberg’s ‘Apple’ effort only not as sweet.
Taste? It’s very light with hint of green grape and lightly sour with a soft bite and fairly mellow. Length wise there isn’t much going on but it’s pleasant enough and medium on the tongue.
If you like sweet apple juice or Appletiser, you’ll love this. If you’d also like to try another South African cider - and a sweeter version of Savannah Dry, then this is for you.
Would go well with cheddar cheese or cheese and onion crisps! 4/5. Refreshing.
