I drink an awful lot of cider (my poison of choice) trying many different kinds!! But Thatcher's Katy for me is the absolute best, light in taste, but packing a heavy punch in alcohol volume I honestly don't think you can top this. Imagine a apple soft drink laced with alcohol & you won't be far off. A firm personal favourite.

The 7.4% ABV of this cider is on the strong side, but far from the strongest I’ve had. Yet the boozy flavor is quite prominent. The actual cider taste is nicely balanced, fairly easy drinking, and clean tasting.

Aroma is like a white wine - and the colour too. Lovely light drink.

A lighter sparkling cider with strong green apple aftertaste. Very drinkable.

I'm just not sure about this one. yes it's got great attributes, the dry, nearly sour Katy taste.It has good body, nice aroma..tartness... but then you get that distinctive Thatchers funk. I'm sure it will grow on me... but for now it is ambiguous to me.

I usually find Thatchers draught too sweet (even when described as dry) and, frankly, somewhat boring. But bottled Katy - light, clear, fruity - is really good, notwithstanding the carbonation that comes in bottles. If only they did it bag-in-box!

Can't beat this cider taste smoothness and just an all round top cider the best out there

one of my favourites of the Thatchers variety. clean and crisp. A slight bit of fizz but not enough to give you that bubbly feeling in your nose like i find some commercial ciders can do.

This is a very pale, lime green in colour, and has an aroma more akin to a Soave wine than a cider. Made from the single apple variety, Katy. The flavour is a little like a cross between a cider and a perry; tart, with a hint of sourness, and some astringency. Very distinctive and individual.

a bit powerful at 7.4%, but a wonderful no nonsense crisp almost white wine taste.

I like to try the different Thatcher's, this is my least favourite so far. The fruitiness was good but it ends on a bitter note I think. Not for me, think I'll stick to the Rosé
