2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from RW in Voorhees. Nose is straight apple, but quite sweet. Pours ultra clear golden but with strange red-orange overtones, never seen anything quite like it. No head, or at least it’s gone in a blink. Thin taste vaguely of apples, not really any alcohol, but not much flavor, either. Medium body but flattish. I understand that this is one of the world’s favorite ciders, but it has that 1950’s style mass appeal which does not resonate with today’s attitude or palates. Apple juice for the morning commute.

No really body to this cider, despite it still being easily drinkable it is not that great. Slight off apple flavours.

This simply is not really cider. It tastes like slightly fizzy sweetened apple juice. This cider is so far behind average British ciders like Aspals or Weston’s it is an affront to the growing number of Irish who want to see decent Irish ciders readily available. Craft cider makers - keep producing. People will eventually get your product out there. Bulmers why not produce a premium cider with no added water, preservatives etc. I would buy it. FYI Magners is virtually up drinkable but it’s no excuse for producing poor cider.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap: The aroma consists of apple cider with a touch of sour apple and a hint of funk. It pours a clear apple juice color with no head at all. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet apple. The finish has light-moderate tart apple and a hint of white wine. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic and simple cider.

Mon péché mignon à Londres. En bouteille ou à la pression, un goût très fruité pas trop sucré, une acidité bien maîtrisée. Un bonheur !

33cl draught at Irish Pub, Düsseldorf. Clear orange with no head. Light body with moderate carbonation. Sour and sweet. Apple with acidic notes. I guess cider is not my favourite alcoholic beverage.

Bu en bouteille de 50cl, peu de mousse une couleur ambrée peu prononcée, un fort goût de pomme trop surcrée peu intéressant.
