Bottled(330ml). -found this one is EuroSpar Graz, sweet slight acidic apple flavor. This is my 6th and last cider, simply because I don’t 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 I’ve tried so I didn’t 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 don’t know, it wasn’t bad and I wouldn’t turn it down if it ’s 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 didn’t have the bite that many other hard ciders seem to have. It went down really easily.

Bottle. Dark golden colour, looks like it’s 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. There’s not much too it. It’s crisp, it’s clean, it’s better than your other average cider maybe, but could very quickly get old. I wouldn’t 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 wasn’t too bad. Certainly, more character than the hornsby’s and woodchucks out there. I think K cider is still my favorite apple cider though. This was not as dry as that.

Pours a orangish yellow with no head, but descent carbonation. Aroma is of sweet apples and white wine. Flavor follows aroma and finishes crisp.
