0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Can. Medium gold, medium carbo. Aroma is really bad-- like apple flavoured soda pop, metal shavings, and eggy farts. Flavours of sickly sweet corn syrup and fake apple. How has this gained such success in the mass marketplace? Who the fuck honestly thinks this tastes good? I understand how watery pale lagers have their place-- I really do because I started there long ago. But this doesnít hold any kind of appeal on any level. Just terrible. Drainpour.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can. Light apple aroma. Pours piss yellow with no head to speak of. Has a weird, artificial flavor to it, plus a metallic taste in the background. Aftertaste is of artificial flavor and rotting fruit. Not even good as a thirst quencher as it tastes like crap. [voice of comic book guy from The Simpsons]: "Worst. Cider. EVER!"

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from Magsinva. Pours apple color with little carbonation and almost no head. Has an artificial vibe to the nose. Taste is thin and the finish is watery. One of the worst ciders Iíve had so far. I canít imagine many being worse.

Pours a sparkling golden yellow with minimal short lived white bubbly head. Aroma of sweet ripe apples, fruity. Taste is slightly sweet dry, with some tartness. A crisp light body with light carbonation. Finish is crisp, dry, some tartness, surprisingly not very sweet, almost like a dry white wine. Overall an ok cider.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(500 ml can from Rising Tide) Clear gold-amber with a fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of apple, faint yeast. Mouthfeel a bit spritzy and prickly, not far from soda pop. Flavor of apple juice, faint yeast. Less sweet than most macro-ciders Iíve had from the US, otherwise itís about the same.
