Schilling Hard Cider
London Dry English Pub Style Cider
Schilling Hard Cider London Dry English Pub Style Cider (6.5% alcohol by volume) is made with fresh apple juice from 100% fresh pressed apples and yeast. It is an English pub style cider with a mildly sweet, spicy aroma lightly dosed with apple. Other than a hint of malo-lactic fermentation the aromas are clean. It pours brilliant gold with slowly rising bubbles form a thin ring around the rim. The cider has a mildly sweet start on the tongue balanced by a moderate tartness quickly joined by a hint of bacon from malo-lactic fermentation and a trace of tannins that provide a light astringent touch. It finishes bone dry. The flavors are rich and well balanced and the cider is refreshing and very drinkable. I rate it 80.
