Review: Bulmers, Brothers and Aspalls Cider
On a recent trip to Morrisons to pick up some tea, I spotted these exciting ciders which I've never seen before! I do like a good cider (none of that Strongbow nonsense) and I particularly enjoy new items!
Brothers Cloudy Lemon
I love Brothers Toffee Apple, there's something so cosy about it, without being too sweet. This cider was a good combination of lemon and apple, not too sweet or acidic. I still prefer Toffee Apple!
Bulmers Indian Summer
Edd had this bottle and I tried a little. This is only 2.8% so a nice easy drink. It contains ginger and cardamon which are perfect for this time of year. I don't think I would drink a whole bottle of it but if you like those flavours you will love it!
Bulmers Five Fruit Harvest
Another autumnal offering from Bulmers. This was my second drink and my favourite of the two. It contains apple, pear, plum, quince and grape! It was delicious and a real taste of autumn.
Aspalls Premier Cru Cyder
Aspells is my favourite cider and I'm always happy to see it on tap at a pub. Edd chose this one because we hadn't seen it before and the percentage was quite high. It had a strong cider flavour- dry rather than sweet. This is a great cider, but not for the casual drinker!
