Bright light gold color. Delicate, interesting, complex aromas of butter roasted nuts and apples, clay, and geranium with a silky, bright, spritzy, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-length apple tart, citrus spritzed melon, honeycomb, and hibiscus tea finish. A layered, very appealing cider with pure, balanced flavors.

English-style ciders range in alcohol from 5-10% and feature austere and muted apple aromas and flavors. These ciders can be produced anywhere in the world, as long as English-origin apple varieties are used. English-style ciders are typically full-bodied and dry, and may also feature a slight “barnyard nose.”
