It’s the lightest coloured cider I’ve ever had - but how does it taste? It’s really good. It’s punchy, sharp, sweet fizzy and very tasty. It just lacks a bit of depth, body and length.
If you like golden delicious apples, you’ll love this single variety from Thatcher’s.
It has a tangy taste that rapidly mellows into light toffee and caramel - you can really taste the pulp. So nice.
This would go great with some cheese and crackers and a chutney - also with a nice salty snack such as pork scratchings.
At 7.4%ABV you won’t get away with drinking this all night, (you might!) but you certainly won’t be disappointed with this superb entry from Thatcher’s in Somerset.
Its champagne colour and fizz really does finish off this well presented and well rounded single variety cider - a rarity these days to find a single blend.
I’d give it 5/5 if it just had a little more in its body and after taste, but otherwise it’s one of the best 4/5 scores I’ve given. I’d give it 4.5/5, but sadly that’s not an option on Cider Expert.
This cider is also superb served on its own, just do it some justice and make sure it’s chilled so you can have it without ice.
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.
I'm sure this was a relatively dry cider a few years ago, however the last time I had this, it was sweet. This could be that my taste has changed.
Reminds me and everyone else of a white wine, on the nose.
This is a cider which is best served cold, very cold. It much worse near room temperature.
For common Thatcher's ciders found at supermarkets it is one of the better ones but if went to Thatchers or buying cider online it wouldn't be on my list.
Almost forgot to say at 7.4% go careful, his is a danger cider.
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.
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!
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.
