Orange coloured, very cloudy with mild carbonation. Woody aroma but with plenty of apple. A little sharp and the wood is there in the flavour. It’s a little thin but pleasant.

Rear label states:- In 1924, cider maker Victor Naish propagated a small orchard behind Stonehouse Farm in Kenn, Somerset. Browns, Bulmers Norman, Fredrick, Ashton Brown Jersey, Dabinett, Sweet Alfords and Yarlington Mill trees were planted and used to make his cider. Over 90 years later, Ganley and Naish are continuing Victor’s legacy by recreating his original cider. A perfectly balanced, medium cider of bittersweet and sharp apples picked from the same orchard behind Stonehouse Farm. Ingredients: Frashly pressed apple juice, water ( no more than 10% ), sugar, sulphites. Never from concentrates. Ganley and Naish Coxhay Kenn St. Kenn BS21 6TN www.Ganley and

Cloudy orange, with an aroma of light wood, apple skin, and tobacco. Light sediment in the bottle. Sharp, slightly astringent, fruit flavour, with a little wood in the finish. Not particularly complex and not much depth, but quite pleasantly drinkable.
