Bottle, from Sainsburys. Yellow gold, big white head formed noisily as I poured it but had disappeared before the bottle was empty. Aggressive condition then generated enough bubbles to maintain a thin head. Low apple and alcohol aromas, soft and spritzy in the mouth with a slightly tart apple skin note and some slight woodiness. Oily aftertaste with a harsh tannin taste at the end and a backdraft of alcohol.

Godd golden color,small head that dissipated quickly.The aroma was sweet and also with maybe a hint of sourness and of course the smell was predominately apple.The taste was very nice,well carbonated apple flavor with a touch of that sour twang like what you get in a green apple but not as powerful.Mostly sweet and nicely done.makes me wish i had some apple trees around my house so i could try making a brew like this.More then worth trying again.

Very very pale yellow...almost clear. The aroma and flavor were very sweet (not expected for a dry cider) with lots of granny smith apple, grapes, and honey. Crisp, lively feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear LIGHT yellow. Aroma is lightly yeasty (barnyard), notes of apple, grape, light notes of wood and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, heavily acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Perhaps the best non-French cider I've had yet.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is much better than the ratings show. Clear golden with a good carbonation with a thin white head. No lacing. The nose has lots of apples, kinda like apple cider (duh) also quite resembles a sour apple jolly rancher. The taste lots of apples and skins. The body is thin and sparkling and very dry. Easily drinkable and quite good.

Bottle purchased from Waitrose, Richmond, England, about a half year ago. Was hoping for something a bit more assertive. Some bruised apple and cheap white wine, dry and as gassy finish. Cool bottle though.
