330ml bottle from Morrisons, Darlington UK. Golden colour, white foam head that rapidly dissipates away and aroma of apple, woody oak. Taste is fruity apple, sweetish, with brandy, wood, boozy, bitter earthy tannins. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, drying bitter tannic finish. Quite drinkable.

Too bitter for my liking, especially with the dryness and acidity.

Strong fruit aroma, dry and fairly complex, but a little too watered down for my liking

This is a fairly dry one, bitter, not as fruity as I tend to like and doesn't seem that English in style to me (though I've only had about half a dozen english ciders, so what do I know?) There's a nice light taste at first, then BAM-big bitter hit. Not a fave.

I don't know a English it is, but definitely astringent. Dry but nice fruit and body. A little too astringent for my taste.
