Thatchers Green Goblin Oak Aged Cider Review

Thatchers Green Goblin Oak Aged Cider Another interesting Cider from Thatchers this Green Goblin is made from bittersweet apples and then matured in 100 year old oak vats.

Interesting notes here with the oak coming through as oak sap, slightly sweet but woody and lots of fizz in here, I wasn't expecting it to be quite so carbonated but it's very refreshing.

With green goblin as the name I was expecting much punchier Apple notes which I didn't get, but this is quite tangy and fizzy and unexpected, and very very refreshing, this is definitely a summer cider and one I'd happily have by the beach.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Light tangy Apple notes, it's not that sweet cloudy Apple, it's gentle bitter Apple peel,and that hint of oak sap sweetness with slight hints of vanilla and toffee apple.

Palate

Fizzy with a Apple peel tang, lots of Apple here both sweet and bitter/tangy with a soft watery Apple mouthfeel, it's not thick of cloying and is very refreshing, vanilla and oak sap hiding in here too

Finish

Slightly drying but mainly just fizzy lots of refreshing carbonation.
