Batlow OPA

Batlow Cider have a couple of tasty little ciders out at the moment. So recently, at the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular, I made a beeline over to the Batlow stand. Out of tap number 3 with a new cider. The Batlow OPA, for those of you playing along at home, it’s not just a terrible play on the IPA, the juggernaut sweeping across craft beer world. In fact, it stands for Oaked Pear & Apple. The guys gave a midi of the OPA. “Worthy of closer inspection”, I said. Read More

Tilse’s Apple Truck Cider

I decided to review Tilse’s Apple Truck cider after seeing it my local pub. They poured the pale cider from the tap into an icy schooner. Produced at top end on the Hunter in the little town of Scone, Apple Truck Cider is the mostly locally made cider to where I grew up. When reviewing ciders I’m always interested in how the local climate affects the flavours.
Scone is on the eastern side of the Great Dividing Range in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. The winters do get chilly which apples need to fruit.
