Am I the only one disappointed by this?

Thatchers > anything that Brothers cider produce...

Word mate.  Brothers is like children's sweets melted down into alcoholic torture.  absolutely rank.

The one mistake I make every year, and will almost certainly forget to avoid this year, is being tempted by novelty Brothers flavours...

"Oooh, rhubarb and custard" I think... Followed by "arrrgh! It's awful!" 30 seconds later followed still by half an hour me glumly trying to force it down before giving up and getting something else...

Pretty sure this is just Mallets rebranded...

Brothers Festival Apple

Made by 4 brothers in Somerset. Brothers Festival Apple is the Official Cider of Glastonbury Festival. Festival Apple is a refreshing, medium dry cider made from the juiciest bittersweet Somerset apples. Full of flavour & perfect for enjoying with friends.

Mallets Original

A thirst quenching medium dry apple cider forged from the juice of freshly pressed bittersweet apples selected from our Somerset orchards.

Both are 5% ABV as well.

No, Brothers Festival Apple Cider is an existing product, that I enjoy. It is not the same as Malletts cider, which I tried in order to ensure their Glastonbury 2019 competition, (and all I won was this most t shirt) which I didn't enjoy.

 

I had a couple of cartons of the Brothers stuff on the coach down, the last time I was at the festival in 2017. It looked more like a carton of juice than any kind of alcohol, so I know even a strict coach driver wouldn't notice.

 

So yes, this is proper Brothers gorgeous sweet stuff.

 

Edit: I say that. But what I had was their festival apple still cider.. You'd think it'd have the same basic taste thought right?

It’s a yearly tradition to get one of those and then halfway through be trying to offload it to somebody else in my group.

Interesting. Strange that the descriptions of both are exactly the same if they are different!
