Gwynt y Ddraig Orchard Gold (4.9% ABV, 500ml). Deep, clear golden colour, tiny head. Rather wan yellow apple flavour, a wee hint of floral notes. Not much. Light to medium body, modest carbonation. Yellow apples, hints of lemon and very mild acidity on the palate. Moderate tannic bitterness toward the middle and finish, apple skins. Rather weak aftertaste with hints of apple skins. Not terribly fruity stuff, "neutral". 6/10.

Smooth session cider, sweet with a dry after taste. Quite earthy. Quite enjoyed it.

Transparent gold colour with medium carbonation. Pleasent apple aroma, hint of floral notes. Initially sweet with crisp bitter apple flavours coming in at the end with a drop of acidity. Really pleasent cider but not mind blowing. Bought at Woodlake Park GC. It was especially refreshing after 18 holes.

Orchard gold from Gwynt y Ddraig is a glorious golden medium cider full of traditional farmhouse character. It's smooth balanced flavours of fresh crisp apple ignites the taste buds leaving a tangy, earthy astringency to its finish.

Orange coloured, clear with moderate fizz. Light but sharp apple aroma. Flavour is earthy and meaty. I think a still version of this would be very nice.

Copper orange, with a fresh aroma of fruit and skin. Tangy apple flavour, with little aftertaste. Not much depth or complexity, but a really nice, refreshing flavour. Very sessionable, and I could happily sink a few of these in the pub.
