Black Thorn was very dry, and not very sweet; it took some time for me to appreciate its lack of sweetness. It also came in cans, something of which I am not a fan. However, I recognize that cans, because they block sunlight, do a better job of preserving the beverage.
Thistly Cross was “wetter and sweeter”; I guess it has to do with the in-famous sweet tooth (?) of the Scots; but not too sweet. Certainly not as sweet as much of the non-fermented cider I have drunk during the course of my life. It came in a very attractive bottle, which depicted a thistle.
