This was my first cider to rate and I thought it was pretty tasty. Poured clear copper with no head. Smells like a lambic/gueuze albeit lightly. Light mustiness, barnyard, etc. Taste is mildly carbonated with a nice mix of sour/sweet. Good.

I wais rather diqppointed by this cider. It felt simply flad, and not lively enough. Sweet, but lacks the zest.

Magners Vintage Irish Cider, 4.5% ABV. 500ml bottle from The Wine Company, Slough. Pours golden with no head and slight visible fizz. Aroma is apple and some woodyness. Flavour is sweet and fruity with a slight wood smoke character. Not very good!

12 oz bottle. The only thing at a local pub that I had not yet tried. When poured looks just like apple juice. Almost no carbonation noticable. Smells a little bit like apples as I expect it would. Tastes a little bit like em too...but also like some kind of wine or champagne that I’ve had. Not too exciting

01.06.05 12oz bottle. All of a sudden this stuff is everywhere. I found out what it was on suggestion of co-worker Joe from Ireland who told me to seek out Bulmers when I told him how I enjoyed Dupont Reserve cider on Christmas.

Once the head fizzes away (like a Sprite), the cider looks just like a glass of apple juice, flat and rather thick looking. Aromas are sweet and appley, some wood. Flavors are very sweet, too sweet, lightly mineral, band-aid, rusty apple. Palate is flat, thin, sugary sweet. Finish is sweet-tart. Now that I’ve had some good ciders, there’s really no reason to sample this sort of stuff.

Smells faintly of cheddar with a large hit of apple. Light and fruity. Very good compared to what else is available here. Light carbonic finish.

the pint i had was a dark golden color, no head, and full of carbonation. it had a chemical aftertaste which i didn’t enjoy, but the actual taste wasn’t awful. your basic apple cider.
