Some ciders are actively unpleasant, and strangely it is the nasty ones that ‘real cider twats’ seem to prefer. This, on the other had, is an enjoyable drink.
Henney’s Frome Valley Dry Cider, 6%
An only moderately rancid nose of apple-skin fruit. It smells quite attractive, only slightly rotten. The palate is lovely and fruity, quite dry and with a delicate fizziness. There is a degree of astringency with adds to the interest, but it is not so pronounced to make it nasty. It is a very refreshing drink to quaff on a November afternoon.
