wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Tasted on 1/22/14 from a capped 330mL bottle. Pours clear, deep golden with some clear bubbles but no head. The nose is very straightforward ripe apple juice with some tartness, and just a touch of cheesy yeast. The flavor is the same, this pretty much just tastes like apple juice with a bit of yeastiness. The body is light with some fizzy carbonation and a short apple juice finish.

Bottle at a wedding in Berberstown Castle. Looks like flat Lucozade. A very mild apply aroma. The taste is watered down apple juice with artificial sweetener. Poor.

Kinz (3527) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle at RVC, actually picked up for the purpose of making Snakebites. Snuck a rating of it in the process. Light gold, clear. Aroma of apple peel. Flavor of light apple, apple peel, dry finish. Comes across as very British. Not bad. But not exciting.

Xavalias (256) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2015
330ml bottle as Magners Irish Cider Original. Pours clear fizzy melon/peach color like a rosé wine, with only a very transient head and no lacing. The aroma has some sweet apple in it, mixed with some chemical soda notes, artificial sweeteners, borderline medicinal. Yeasty phenols. The taste is wine-y, tart, mild acidic, light sweet. The palate is a watery, high carbonation. Decent sweet and fruity finish.

samzim (347) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Caramel and apple aroma with slightly acidic scent. Clear copper colour. Flavours of a variety of apples, and caramel with some citrusy notes. Light body with high carbonation. Pleasant, but a bit too sweet for my liking.

BrewMaster0912 (49) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2015
pours a light red amber color with very light carbonation. The aroma kind of smells of dried urine to be honest. The tastes is sweet and smooth, definitely a cider. Doesnt leave a dry aftertaste. A good beer despite what i’ve said i recommend it.

ContemplateBeer (1777) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pint at The Irish Rover, Louisville. Aroma: Very slight apple skin must; slight oak; slight tartness; light to moderate sweetness. Appearance: Pleasant light copper; well carbonated pour with no head. Flavor: Apple skin and a hint of oak up front; some light to moderate juice sweetness midway through, but a dry finale. Palate: Light body, slick texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Found this to be a pretty safe, but unoffensive cider. Fine cider in a pinch.

On tap at Pensacola Brewing. Pours a clear gold with small white head. The aroma is acetone and apple skin. Thin mouth, very acidic, little fruit flavor, bad.
