McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Tasted like a dry alcoholic apple juice but it lacked the crispness that other ciders have. It's common in pubs in London (along with Strong Bow)

Sweet apple nose. Decent golden appearance. Sweetened apple taste. A reasonable cider.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2003
Light, fizzy, overwhelmed by sulphites in both aroma and flavour. Sweetish finish. Would be blandishly acceptable were it not for the sulphites.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2003
This used to be one fo the ciders I raved about until I started learning better. Sweet apple juice flavors get quickly overtaken by a dryness in the finish but just lacks a little in crispness and bite

CapFlu (4462) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2003
(500ml Can) Well carbonated light golden cider with no head. Fermented apple aroma. Fairly sweet taste with a dry finish. Better than the norm!

Don't be fooled by its appearance. Looks like a normal cider but this masks a truly hideous taste that is much like paint stripper I was once told. Leaves you so dry after only a few mouthfuls that speech becomes difficult, or is that because if you drink this then you clearly are mentally challenged and probably only drink this because its the closest you can get to the white cider that you love with a roof over your head, before they turn you out to your bed of leaves and the rabid dog that you satisfy yourself with before falling into your familiar comatose state.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2003 Wow....this is now my favorite cider. I tried this one recently for the first time and was blown away. I tried it in the bottle and would love to try in on draft. An incredibly carbonated, slightly champagne like feel, but a wine like aftertaste.

Probably my favorite draught english cider. Its pretty good from a bottle but better on draft. Good balance of sweet and dry.

Flat and not particularly tasty.
