Bottle. Poured light golden color with a small off-white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Light tart apple aroma. Light body with a thin texture. Flavor of tart apple with a light sweet dry finish. My expectations were met.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle purchased at Lukas Liquor in KC. The body was light yellow with a white head and lazy carbonation. The aroma was light sour apples with perfume and some herbs. The taste had some minerals at first. There was some light Jonathon apples that took over after a while. The carbonation was soft in the mouth. This was very smooth and I will look for this again.

500 ml bottle. Really pale golden, almost like water. Crisp apple aroma. Light rounded sweetness. Really mellow. Low carbonation level, next to none. Acidic and somewhat tannic sensation. Light, even though it is high in alcohol. Very drinkable. Great cider.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Tesco. Straw colour. Fizzy mouthfeel. Soft apple aroma with a spicy, almost musky, edge. On the palate its dry crisp and fruity, although lacks a bit of depth. A touch clean and lacking in traditional character but undeniably refreshing. Quite acidic finish and aftertaste.

Bottle. Sparkling pale cider with a spritzy, sparkly and sweet apple aroma. The flavour is refreshingly sweet. Overall a very nice cider.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sort of a pale greenish with a touch of white foam. Looks like wine. Pleasant musky aroma. Nice medicinal tartness. Quite a bit of residual sweetness to be a dry cider, but still pleasant overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into a Flute glass. Pours a very see-through pale yellow color with a bit of a foamy head to start with that trails off quickly. Very light aroma of dried apples with a bit of a sour note and spice. The flavor is somewhat bland with much of what you smell on the nose, dried apples, water, and a tiny bit of spice. Finishes as the bottle says: very dry!! Not too impressed with this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A tasty and well made bottled cider this turned out to be. Looked like French champagne in the glass. Sparkling, lemon yellow body with high effervescence that created an orchestra of noise from the glass. Woody, soft and rounded, fresh crushed apple and pear aroma that showed a pleasant fruit sweetness and a hint of spice. Quite vinous and drawing in the mouth. Lightly sweet and juicy, fresh apple flavours upfront moving into apple-wine flavours on the mid-palate and beyond where it showed some of the alcohol before drying out in the smooth swallow. Becomes tangy as it warms and the fruits just capture the taste-buds and get the saliva glands working overtime. Very clean and simple, but damned tasty and refreshing, I ended up buying a few more bottles to see me through the night. Nice!!! (50cL, BBE 05/08, Tesco, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk)

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2006 One of the best ciders Iíve ever had. I think some of the other reviewers might have had bad bottles, because this is just terrific, just clean apple with a hint of spice. Not totally bone dry, just a tiny hint of residual sugar. Great acidity. Perfect with a pork roast.
