A traditional cider made from organically grown apples. 🍎 Not one of the ciders that are too sweet, but undoubtedly a traditional cider at its best. Sweet fruit ciders are all well and good, but for me it has to be simply apples. It has a slight honey flavoured aftertaste, but it's none the worst for that. At 6.8%, it's a decent strength that can be drunk all day. Well worth trying.

Done an edit to aline with my most recent reviews. Cloudy pale orange colour, a little carbonation. Small amount of funk aroma with caramel. This is a superb cider with a lot of depth with a sharp initial tastes with some tannins which balances out with some sweetness at the end. Mildly acidic. Fruity but not too sweet. For many this might taste dry, but to the initiated, it is medium dry. If you like true ciders this is one you can enjoy even if you prefer you cider dry or sweet as it is very well balanced between the two.

That's more like it. A proper cider. Good fruit flavour, nice balance of acid, a bit of funk and good bite to it. At 6.8% I happy to get a few more in.

Straw coloured, cloudy with moderate fizz. A traditional cider with a funky aftertaste which initially I wasn't keen on, but it certainly grew on me and actually really enjoyed. A deep flavoured mature cider with a noticeable astringency

The pour started clear and turned cloudy at the bottom. It is a light gold. The carbonation was extremely high! I had it very cold and it popped like a warm champagne bottle. I wonder if it fermented some sugar in the bottle. The aroma was phenolic — spicy and earthy. The taste was dry phenolic apple. It is definitely astringent-forward. The finish is long astringent and bitter. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy. I was quite surprised by the level of carbonation. I enjoyed the astringency and cider.

500ml bottle. Straw golden colour, short-lived bubbly white head and aroma of tart apple, woody oak, funk. Taste is apple, vanilla, woody, bittersweet with tannins & musty, barnyard notes. Medium bodied, low carbonation, dry earthy woody tannic finish. Quite drinkable.

Hazy, rather than cloudy, and a warm, golden colour, with an aroma of apple skin and leather. The taste is reminiscent of apple puree, with a dryish aftertaste, carrying light wood. Deceptively easy to drink for a 7% cider.

This just launched in the U.S., $8 for 500ml. A true (and awesome) English cider, but a bit more approachable then their Black Fox (lower tannins and sweeter). Notes of cider apples, orange, yeast, honey, and stone fruit.

I was looking forward to this cider, it looked like a cloudy apple, no added fruit and organic, I mean where could it go wrong? Upon opening the overwhelming smell was vinegar, on pour it looked good, cloudy as mentioned, a nice bit of fizziness and the smell had settled down to a light apple aroma. Taste, to put it simply it tastes like a weak apple cider vinegar. I finished the bottle and thought it’s an acquired taste but not for me. In order to check my thoughts I diluted a quality organic apple cider vinegar purchased from Costco and bingo it tasted very similar

This is an organi. English cider Hefordshire. I thought I didn't like astringent, bitter cider but this one is great.the balance of flavors makes this cider complex and enjoyable. This is best to drink while not eating at the same time.
