Worcestershire Cider (4.8%)

Oldfield’s Orchard

Clear and sparkling, there’s a wonderfully inviting nose of fragrant, fresh, sweet apples – not quite what I was expecting based on the label, but very pleasant.  The taste is a little surprising too, being quite light.  You could almost use the word “delicate” to describe it, although somebody a little less charitable might suggest it was a little watery.  The bittersweet notes you would expect from the mix of apples are there in a nicely balanced fruity flavour, although I would pigeonhole it as medium rather than medium dry.

A light, refreshing, fruity cider that is about as accessible as they come, with just enough complexity to be interesting.
