Green Goblin Oak Aged Cider
Rating 6/10, 6% alcohol
This time I have a cider from the home of cider, Somerset England. So it has got to be good … right.
Green Goblin oak aged cider is brewed by Thatchers Cider Company. The cider is made from English cider apples using traditional methods and matured in 100 year old old oak vats. On the bottle it is described as “a unique blend of strong cider, beautifully balanced to give a fresh character with a medium dry finish”.
I have only rated it 6/10 as I am not a big fan of apple ciders. I know this is weird as apple ciders are the traditional ciders. If you like a dry apple cider then this is a good one for you. It is good quality and a full bodied drink. Not surprising there is an apple aroma when first opening the bottle. In the glass it is clear and a golden colour with a subtle fizz. The taste is fruity, dry and not too acidic. very drinkable although a bitterness does come through after awhile, which I am not a fan of.
And of course I can’t pass up mentioning the cool medieval style goblin on the label, even through the goblin is aqua/blue not green it still looks cool.
I found this really hard to match to music. After some searching I have decided to go with Michael Bublé because he has an old fashioned feel like Frank Sinatra, is very smooth with a modern twist, the Green Goblin is a traditional cider with a blend of modern technologies.
