Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - APR 17, 2011
500ml bottle at The Brit Club in Diego Garcia, BIOT. Well, this was unique. Big toffee nose with light apple and some vanilla, a bit toasty. As expected, rather sweet, but the toffee and apple flavors blend pretty well. Lingering toffee finish, a bit cloying after a bit, but rather enjoyable for those of us with the occasional sweet tooth.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Clear dark gold, almost flat. Aroma of parma violets, apple, mild sweet toffee. Flavour has sweet toffee, mild apple, the aroma in reverse. Too sweet, too artificial tasting.

GoufCustom (763) - HONG KONG - APR 23, 2014


500 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Centry Place, Mong Kok.

Clear light amber honey colour; Very thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Almost no lacing with very fizzy carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of cream soda and sweet toffee which can be smelt as soon as it was popped, with light apple wine, green apple flesh, very light yoghurt tartness, sweet caramel, and faint tannic; Strong sweet taste of apple and pear juice, with sweet toffee, sweet caramel, cream soda, apple and pear purees; Light body. Watery with slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is full of candy toffee, warm sweet caramel and cream soda. It is sweet but itís chewy and quite pleasant. Apple and pear tastes are quite thick, more puree than juice. No tannic nor tartness but still pretty tasty... Wet after taste. Sweet and chewy to mouth.

Comments: I am tempted to think this is alco-pop, but the fruit cider elements are rich, the toffee is sweet but it is also creamy and nice. Well made, wholesome and simple to enjoy, I will buy this again!

Bottle. Toffee flies out the glass in full effect but Im still expecting this to be generic.! Drinks like Apple juice with toffee flavour and just a bit of booze. I was right as usual!

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2013
I didnít actually find this too bad at all. Itís exactly what itís name says it will be. Brown sugar, apple and toffees. Quite sticky and sweet but exactly what was expected

500ml bottle. Amber color. No head, non expected. Massive amount of toffee no apples in aroma. Sickly sweet toffee flavor.

ALLOVATE (2349) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2013
Brilliant pale gold with low effervescence. Aroma of creaming soda with a light hint of candied apple and cinnamon. Taste is teeth-rattling sweet, but avoids becoming cloying. Creaming soda and toffee, light apple juice and something medicinal like cough syrup. Thankfully short. Carries a hint of fortified white wine (?) in there late. Carbonation is soft and the body light. Appreciate the creativity but I canít see this as being a sessionable number! (50cL, BB 21/05/14, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

500ml bottle (Pudel, Tallinn)
Absurd sweet apple crumble and vanilla cream aroma. Water and sugar and fizz in the mouth, Simple sweet sugarry apple fruit-juice. Highly drinkable, but a bit cheap and fake. Must be artificially sweetened. Guilty pleasure. But very silly. Yeah, cream soda.
