Review/Tasting Notes:

Purchased From: The Royal Oak, Bristol
Date: 02/09/12

So another Sunday and another pub day with friends, this time celebrating someone’s birthday. After having a tapas previously, we went to The Royal Oak for a pint. Being like most pubs, there’s a struggle for real cider, but this one managed to have a Thatcher Heritage. So it was my one of choice this time.

This has a rustic apple smell, that is pleasant but not amazing if I’m honest. I’d say this is a much better version of their sister cider Thatchers Traditional. It’s got a juicy apple taste, but the excitement levels are fairly low. There’s a mild acidity, sourness and slight dry finish, but no long lasting taste and just would rather have something else with more wow factor. at 4.9% it could easily be a session cider if that’s your thing.

Would I buy this again?: Possibly if no more exciting cider available
Overall Rating: 6/10
