3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Very pale green / yellow/ petroleum coloured pour with a fleeting white effervescent head. Aroma is semi-sharp, some candy, some floral notes and bile. Some sharp lemon citrus in the nose as well. Flavour is sweet sharp fruit, apple, touch of sharpness. Palate is quite fizzy, semi-sweet, semi-crisp finish. Decent cider. Quite clean, maybe a little too clean for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours pale yellow, no head. Aromas of... well... cider apples, perhaps get a hint of the champagne they are on about in the blurb, in a light, yeasty way. Taste is dry, tart but not sour. Slightly chewy on the finish.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a medium gold with a slight, white, quick-fading head. Nose has almost no apple to it; there’s rubber, latex, and medicinal notes. Rich and mellow on the tongue, with a small amount of residual sweetness. It has a nice buttery roundness to it that sticks around through the soft finish. Quite good, once one gets past the nose.
