A little watery, effervescent, not as good as woodchuck. It tastes...fake? Still, not bad if you like this sort of soda-like beer-like whatever you want to call it.

22 Apr 2006 - Stale musty, slight sulphur aroma. Clear amber colour, good heat and no lacing. Sweet apple sulphur barnyard flavours. Sweet barnyard finish. I guess Iím not a cider afficionado to give this justice.

A strange tasting cider with an even stranger aftertaste. Other ciders are much better than this one.

Very light orange color with no head. Sour and tart apple aroma, but a bit plastic-like. The taste is weak apple. Really nothing impressive at all.

Firstly, sorry for the lack of descriptives in this rating I just didnít think it warrented it. Anyway....Backed by a multi-million pound advertising campeign to appeal to the masses you just know that it isnít going to challenging flavour wise....And it isnít. The recommendation is that it is served over ice. However, this isnít a good idea as it will make it taste even thinner than it is. Has light yellow hue and much evidence of high carbonation. The taste is very ordinary and the one I had was slightly skunky. Its better than the rubbish ciders like strongbow but just doesnít measure up to decent ciders like Merrydown. A very ordinary cider.

I tried this in Kilarney Ireland. It was a very unique taste. Kind of bubbly like a champaigne. Very light tasting. Not a whole lot of any kind of flavor actually. The bubbles in a beer like drink are kind of odd.

Enjoyed a 500 mL can of this drink while in Mayo Country, Ireland. This cider had a fruity, apple and grape aroma that was very sweet. The drink was also very sweet, and little bit sour, without bitterness. A very thin, smooth and light beer with some lively carbonation. Very bright gold in appearance with only a brief pale head.

A LIVELY BEVERAGE. BEST SERVED QUITE COLD OR WITH ICE. HEAD IS LIGHT BUT DIMINISHES QUICKLY. THE TASTE IS NOT OVERLY SWEET. NICE CARBONATION.

The aroma is sour apples, plastic, fresh paint, and yeast. The appearance is deep yellow/gold with a small amount of carbonation. The flavor is tart, sour, sweet, and it has a cheese like quality. The palate is fitting for a cider and the finish is dry but this is not that good. It reminds me of malt liquor except itís cider.

I remember seeing the advert ages ago, and thinking how it was possibly the most effective advert in making you want the roduct right at that moment. Finally i got my hands on a bottle, but to great disappointment. It tasted alright, but the after taste was revolting and overstayed itís welcome. I want to like it, but itís just not nice enough. Itís no strongbow iíll give you that.
