Light gold color. Aromas of tart apple, jasmine, pickling spices, smoked meats, blue cheese, and celery with a slightly chewy, crisp, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and an intricate, medium-long dried blood orange, acorn squash, minerals, and eucalyptus finish. A proper English-style cider with table-friendly tannins; deserves a thoughtful pairing.

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.”
