Been back for a while now, read that company that now owns the old Taunton cider have issues with new Taunton cider about using the name natch. 

Used to love natch back in the day of flagons also specialvat was good. 

Just before factory shut back in the 90s they were making a still cider called Somerset leveller which was fantastic, sadly never saw commercial release

Hecks as you know is in Street. Moons are more or less opposite the Apple Tree pub just before site when coming from Glastonbury. They put a sign by the turning.

Controversial, but I do not like Hecks one little bit. I can taste the sweeteners which utterly ruined what should be a natural product.  I know they're highly thought of, but I really didn't like them.

If you're ever down in the Torbay area, worth a visit (nearest establishment to me); culprit of many a fuzzy head

One of my locals.

Also worth visiting Hunts cider in Stoke Gabriel as well.

Fair play, if coming Frome side, maybe worleys in Dean?

Totally agree with this. Unfortunately many cider makers use sweeteners as adding sugar tends to restart fermentation which can push the alcohol content up into the next vat bracket. It's one of the reasons I stick to dry cider.

Frustrating. Sweeteners are everywhere and I can't stand the aftertaste. I would much rather that things simply aren't as sweet.

Yes, same here. Sweeteners leave a horrible after taste for me although a lot of people don't seem to experience this. The only sweetener I have ever 'got on with' is stevia. Coke used to do a sugar free version using stevia in a green can which I actually quite liked, sadly they withdrew it from the UK market for some reason.

I swear my box of Thatchers gets stronger with every pint.  It was like apple juice when I first opened it, now it seems to be about 10%!

You should give the below a try if you want a nice still cider that won't get you wrecked after 2 pints.

This one's even nicer but it gets me pissed a bit too quickly.
