Good George Rose Cider Squealer (946ml Bottle)
Call off the search, you've found your Summer drink. While others are fumbling with corks and serrated caps you'll be half way through a glass of this beautiful Rosé Cider - and nobody will know what you're drinking.
It's pink like a blushing nun, and it's fizzy like a… fizzy…um, nun (sorry, we're brewers not metaphorers.) You'll taste strawberry and vanilla and, if you're concentrating a little hint of lime. But this is a cider, not an end-of-year exam. If you love drinking it, that's good enough for us.
Rosé Cider (4.5%) looks a luminous pinky orange, and has aromas of strawberry, apple and lime. On the palate it's sweet and sparkling, with subtle vanilla note and refreshing strawberry burst.
Made from fermented apple juice, cider comes in a number of varieties. English cider is dry, with fruity, tannic qualities and low carbonation. This can be found cask-conditioned in England. Normandy is another major cider-producing region, with a sweeter, more effervescent, very complex style. Ciders produced elsewhere are often sweet, simple beverages for mass consumption, though there are some good English-style ciders in North America and Norman-style ciders in Quebec.
