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

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (from Tescos, BBE Jun 07). Slightly orange hint to the colour but not as artificial as Sirrus. Actually drinkable without the ice - just a fairly standard mass produced cider - lots of apparant alcohol, slightly sweet with a hint of apples. Apparently this is made with 17 varieties of apples - perhaps they used 1 of each?

Maybe I just donít get ciders. Tastes like winy apple juice. I like apples, I like apple juice, I like apple cider, but I just canít get into hard cider. I do like the dry finish, but Iíll leave the rest for someone who can appreciate this.

I hoped I would enjoy this as I have forbears from the fine old town of Clonmel. Unfortunately I have been disillusioned by SilkTorkís description of its origin. I wondered why the barman offered me ice in my glass. It was oddly coloured, sweet, sticky and artificial tasting.

Tastes a bit like apple cider, also easy drinking. Seemed to be a bit watery, but overall i enjoyed it alot, not quite as good as strong bow.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 (bottle - 568 ml) Golden/orange color with a fizzy and quickly disappearing white head. The aroma is very dry and has lots of apple tartness to it with some earthen notes underneath it all. Slightly sweet and tart taste at the beginning with a semi-sweet middle and a nice dry, tart and crisp finish. Lots of carbonation and very fizzy on the tongue. A good quality cider.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Nothing too bad. Slightly sweet apples in the start, with some refreshing acidity, it was drinkable, but a bit boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Tried again on tap, even better. I had this again form a bottle and enjoyed it a little more. Medium gold body with a note of orange. There are only traces of a head. The rich apple aroma makes me think of fresh Jonathons. There is also a note of perfume and vinous character. The taste is dry apple with some tart raspberry in the finish. There is also some apple core. A decent macro cider, but not one I would seek out again.
