The version I had (b-in-b) was only 5.8%. Yellow, a bit cloudy, medium, easy drinking.

Too bitter for my liking, same as the other two I tried from them, but slightly less so. This one is also very tart & acidic, which is unusual for an English cider. I liked the rich flavor notes, with orange, leather, caramel, and bittersweet apples, and would love to see this with less bitterness and tartness.
