Cloudy yellow, with an aroma of straw and oak.
Fresh, fruity flavour, with mellow tannins and oak developing in the aftertaste, and the slightest hint of funk in the finish.
Not as tannic or complex as I expected, or as many other Dunkerton's ciders, but, nonetheless, a refreshing, satisfying drink, and surprisingly sessionable for the ABV.
I had this with a selection of Lancashire goat's cheeses on domestic Arran oatcakes, and it worked pretty well, but I feel this would really suit a smoked Lancashire, or a Cheddar, or our local Auld Reekie.
