Loved this for ages. One of my favourite dry ciders out there. Tangy and sharp, light golden in colour with a nice dry bite, but softer than some. Light sparkling, a medium to full bodied that is refreshing and very light for a dry cider. It lingers on the palate with a light aroma and taste. The apple flavour is fairly complex and really delivers if you’re a dry cider fan. 5 stars from me, this one is well crafted and special. No taste of the farmyard here, just deep apple aromas and taste. A real find. Bought this in the Co-op but I know Ostler’s restaurant in Worcester serves this one and the medium version by the bottle. Haven’t seen it anywhere else, so far, anyway.

This will make a man of you. Punchy at 6.8%, dry & sharp. Not a session cider but we’ll worth a punt.

The bottle states that this cider contains the following apple varieties: Yarlington Mill, Harry Master's, Hereford RedStreak and Somerset RedStreak. I really like it when the producers state which apples go into the cider. Clear gold colour, light carbonation. Funky aroma with hints of toffee. Nice crisp taste with a little tannin and oak popping through at the end. No massive flavours powering their way through here. Not massively dry, Bought at the co-op in Coleford

Light golden, clear and too fizzy for me. Aroma of dry apple skin. Slightly woody flavour. Very dry and tannic finish.

This is a small batch cider, produced from a blend of Redstreak, Yarlington Mill, and Harry Masters apples. The aroma is light and sharp, with a little apple skin. The initial flavour is bitingly dry, with a developing tannic aftertaste, which carries hints of wood. Quite unusual, and will not be to everyone's taste, but I quite like this!
