GoufCustom (823) - HONG KONG - MAY 29, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Very pale orange colour with red tint; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with active carbonation; Light sweet and sharp tart aroma of dry white wine and apple wine, with yoghurt, apple flesh, strong tannic, light wood and light musty; Very light sweet taste of apple juice, with faint alcohol, strong carbo, faint tartness, soda water, and very light tannic; Light body, very watery palate; Mouth feel is very thinned apple water with faint wineyness, faint tart notes and tannic. B-O-R-I-N-G!... Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: This one is almost a carbon-copy of its perry counterpart, Magners Pear: watery as hell, no distinctive tart / woody / tannin characters. This is cider’s very own Milwaukee’s Best Premium: apple water, that is.

Hell goldener Cider mit wenig Schaum. Geruch sehr fruchtig nach Äpfeln, etwas säuerlich, so ist auch der Geschmack.

jmgreenuk (4350) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Tap at the Dubliner, Bangkok. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is light apple! The flavour is medium sweet with a sweet apple palate and a short apple finish. Medium apple with soft apple carbonation. God I hate apples!

Cybercat (3315) - Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a clear amber with minimal head. Aroma is strongly of fresh apple. Crisp flavor is all apple, a hint of pear, typical but enjoyable. Texture is smooth and firm. An average cider, but a worthy one.

Calisky (719) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2014
Couleur orange, pas de mousse. Nez de pomme a cidre legerement sucré. Gout assez doux de pommes, sucre, eau,... bonne petillance, fin douce sucrée et rapide.

Carmel color. Apple aroma. Not an overly sweet cider, not really a strong apple flavor really in my opinion just a quality cider.

Blairgus (2607) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
25 Mar 2014, bottle. light yellow/pink, clear, no bubbles. nose is a bit harsh apple cider. thin body and mildly fizzy. apple flavor is faint at best, and kind of metallic and artificial. mildly sweet, crisp, some lingering tartness. ok.

I don’t claim to be a cider expert, but this was pretty average and middle of the road. Little bit of apple, sweet, tart, light body and crisp carbonation.

Standard by which other ciders are judged, this is the pub original we all know and love (even if under different names); a bit spiced, a bit chemical, a lot apple, a lot good, balanced tartness. It can be beaten, but it’s up there for a reason.
