This bottled cider poured a fully diminished clear colored head of medium sized short lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent light orange colored very softly carbonated body. The aroma was mild with red apple notes. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and very tingly at the finish. The flavor was typical apple cider with apples and a slight Cinnamon note. It was pretty standard, nothing specially and very typical.

Salmon-colored body w. little carbonation. Aroma of overripe apples. Decent apple flavor, but again, the finish is of the overripe/spoiled apple quality. Some spiciness, perhaps cinnamon, mixed in.

Bottled(330ml). -found this one is EuroSpar Graz, sweet slight acidic apple flavor. This is my 6th and last cider, simply because I donít like this type of drink....

Can, in London. Light orange with no head. Aroma and flavor sweet and acidic from apples, kind of beer-like in the taste.

First cider Iíve tried so I didnít have anything to compare it to. Clear golden color with no head at all. Aroma is light with apples and a hint of champagne yeast. Taste is pretty light as well and tastes like lightly spiced cider and chardonnay. Very heavily carbonated and a crisp, dry finish. I donít know, it wasnít bad and I wouldnít turn it down if it ís offered to me but the just taste just seems ordinary compared to a good beer. Still a pretty good drink though.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 Have to say I find Ciders hard to rate compaired to beers. Looked like a cider, pretty negligable head. There was just a hint of red in the colour though. Scent was apples and spice as expected. Very high carbonation. Tasted of cider but didnít have the bite that many other hard ciders seem to have. It went down really easily.

Bottle. Dark golden colour, looks like itís almost glowing. Fruity apple aroma. Tastes pretty reasonable. Crisp and refreshing, not much depth or alcohol but pretty nice.

This is good in that sissy drink sort of way. Thereís not much too it. Itís crisp, itís clean, itís better than your other average cider maybe, but could very quickly get old. I wouldnít mind having one or two. :) Called Magners in the rest of the world, Bulmers in Ireland.

Had an english pint of this stuff in Cambridge, Mass whilst visiting a friend of mine at Harvard. It wasnít too bad. Certainly, more character than the hornsbyís and woodchucks out there. I think K cider is still my favorite apple cider though. This was not as dry as that.
