No head, minimal body, very lite carbonation which is appreciated, goes down like apple juice. It’s a touch on the drier side. Mild aromas and apple flavors. If you like lite dry ciders this one isn’t too bad, but some of us crave something more.

Draught at O’Neils in San Francisco. Clear golden color filmy soap bubbles on top that popped quickly. Typical apple flavor and aroma. Not overly sweet. Very refreshing.

Bottled. Sparkling, clear, golden cider with no head. Some sourness, apples and yeasty notes in the aroma. Refreshing flavor with apples, some sourness and cellar. Thin, slightly sparkling mouthfeel. (060711)

StueyD (1330) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2006
A peachy orange coloured cider with a strong fizz. A distinct, artificial apple aroma and slightly metallic. The taste is a mild apple flavour, quite sweet and syrupy, and bland. Drinking this was like the morbid fascination of a car crash, looking to see what all the fuss is about, then realising that what you actually see is going to haunt you for a very long time. My cider-loving fiancée even turned this down! (Bottle -purchased from The Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk.

Doesn’t smell too good. Not much bubbles, plain. First taste is pretty decent though. No fruity flavors, just a slight cross between a cider and a champagne in taste.

Not a bad cider but nothing great either. Had it in bottle in a pub in Temple Bar - Dublin. Quite sweet.

On draft. Not bad cider, but it’s not great. Apples, white wine, nutmeg dominate. A dried peach note also.

GregClow (2937) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Can from the LCBO. Pinkish-golden with a very active body, very obvious artifical carbonation. The aroma surprised me a bit, as there’s a hint of yeasty funkiness in there alongside the slightly chemically apple notes. Crisp and refreshing when cold, with the taste of sweet apple juice that has the cloying edge cut by the carbonation. As it warms, though, the body turns syrupy, and the sweetness becomes a bit agressive. It’s decent for an industrial cider, but put it up against any artisinal versions and there’s just no comparison.

Bottled, 500ml, Pasteurised. Yellow orange with heavy carbonation. Similar to many commercial ciders, sweet apple pulp flavours, quite artificial, with a background vague tinny taste. Unremarkable and cheap tasting and probably cheap to produce, looks like the heavy advertising is the main thing.
