So the football was rubbish and we had to head back to the pub to drink away our sorrows. To mix it up this time I went for an Orchard Pig Explorer.

This one has a rough apple juice taste. It reminds me of a more juicier and sexier Thatchers Heritage. It has some sourness, acidity and tang to it, but not the most overly exciting long lasting taste I was hoping for. Overall it’s satisfying but not the most exciting. I much preferred their 6.5% cider I had last year.

Would I buy this again?: Yes
Overall Rating: 7.5/10
