Dry English Cider by Aspall Cider House is an English cider and is being judged as an English Cider (category C1B from the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines).  English ciders are typically dry with moderate tannins and an occasional smokiness from a malo-lactic fermentation.

This cider pours a light golden color with just a small rim of head from the petillant carbonation.  The aroma is moderately floral apple with a hint of smokiness.  The flavor is prominently apple with a gentle acidity giving way to a hint of tannin in the dry finish.  Crisp, refreshing, flavorful and dry.
