Review/Tasting Notes:

Purchased From: W G Grace, Bristol
Date: 26/08/12

So I popped on down to Wetherspoons to meet some friends and predictably they had a couple of Westons available in the B-I-B’s. This time it was the Old Rosie and Marcle Hill. As I haven’t had many of the Marcle Hill before, I went for that this time.

The taste I have to say is just so uninspiring. It’s fruity and has a mild sweet tang, but there’s no depth to this and feels slightly watery. It’s like the taste has been sucked out of it and left with this. It’s obviously trying to appeal to people who don’t usually have cider, but that isn’t me. If you’re desperate for something vaguely resembling cider, then it’s fine. Otherwise go for a proper cider!

Would I buy this again?: Possibly. Prefer something more exciting.
Overall Rating: 6/10
