Seeing as you can’t get more English than St. George, what better way to get you feeling patriotic for the big England game tomorrow than having a cider with St. George in its name. For those of you reading it after the 24th June, then fingers crossed we went on to win that game and the tournament. Wishful thinking I know!

As for the cider, well it’s an interesting one to say the least. Not in a bad way at all, but it just has a very distinct bitter woody/nutty type taste to it and made from local Somerset apples. It has a fairly bitter juicy kick that slowly drys your mouth out over time and has fairly decent level of tannins. It’s one that I like but I can’t necessarily put my finger on why. If you love your cider dry then it’s worth trying!

Update 06/10/12: Dry, crisp and gorgeous taste. It’s a dry your gums out cider. Need to love your cider on the dry side.

Would I buy this again?: Yes
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
