"Time devoted to marketing". This stuff pours luminous orange and tastes like rotten crab apples that have been pissed on by alcoholics. I think they add ice is to hide the appalling smell, a bit like corona and the lime.

Clear copper with lively carbonation. Aroma of sweet apples, some vinous tones. Moderate sweet, apple flavors, a bit acidic, dry finish. OK.

My standard party cider in my fridge. Fizzy, sweet, orange and generally inoffensive. Appley and nowhere near scrumpy..

Cavie (3746) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Can from Bishops. Aroma is super dry, like a champagne. Yeasty nose. Flavor is dry, light sweetness and fruit but ever dry. Light fruit on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg @ Cox’s, Dromod [290514]
Golden orange, no head just a rim of bubbles, fierce carbonation
Aroma - Very little apple, just acidic sweetness, an odd artificial slightly peppery note
Taste - Tangy bit artificial cider apple, quite acidic, not the worst, but gets very boring by the end of the pint
Palate - High carb - far too fizzy, light body, tangy acidic, fairly sweet. Finish quite dry then a lingering sugar residue
Overall - A poor mass-produced boring cider

GoufCustom (744) - HONG KONG - MAY 29, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Very pale orange colour with red tint; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with active carbonation; Light sweet and sharp tart aroma of dry white wine and apple wine, with yoghurt, apple flesh, strong tannic, light wood and light musty; Very light sweet taste of apple juice, with faint alcohol, strong carbo, faint tartness, soda water, and very light tannic; Light body, very watery palate; Mouth feel is very thinned apple water with faint wineyness, faint tart notes and tannic. B-O-R-I-N-G!... Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: This one is almost a carbon-copy of its perry counterpart, Magners Pear: watery as hell, no distinctive tart / woody / tannin characters. This is cider’s very own Milwaukee’s Best Premium: apple water, that is.
