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.
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.
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.
