This cider sparkles to the max! In addition, it has a light gold body and lacks a head. A fermented apple juice aroma is one dimensional, but aptly indicates what is to follow. Alcoholic apple juice tasting with a sour apple flavor on the palate that endures and is indeed the defining characteristic.

Sweet but not even a little "bite!" My wife liked it but it was too sweet for me.

Light golden colour with not only no head, but no carbonation bubbles whatsoever, the barkeep could have given me apple juice and I probably wouldnít have noticed (except for the 6%abv - but that doesnít kick in until after you have finished) A sweet smooth refreshing beer, but only one for me - canít do too much sweets at once.

like apple juice. I really enjoy this with a meal, but by itself itís a little too sweet.

Very dry and crisp, like a typical English cider. Adequate.

Strong apple nose, pale yellow, short lived noisy head. Apple flavour, much like apple juice. Not overly sweet, enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Can. Head is initially very small, fizzy, fully diminishing. Clear medium to dark yellow. Aroma of apple juice and twigs/seeds, light notes of brown sugar, metal, and paint. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately astringent. Very simple overall, some industrial-ish flaws, but the acidity and tannins are more assertive than most commercial examples. Could be worse.

The best cider Iíve had, although I havenít seen it around here in a while. Itíll be a cold day in Hell, though, when I mix it with Guinness. Update: I found it again. Good color, not too fizzy. A bit of lambic-ish funky aroma.

I quite like this but only when I fancy something a bit sweeter.
Goes well with a meal anyway
