Sorry folks, this is really bad stuff. Aroma is fair, and appearance is fine, but it goes downhill from there. It has a burned rubber taste and is seems like there was no quality control whatsoever. After awhile you get used to it and I imagine if you are drunk enough you don’t care, but initially it strikes you as an industrial produced cider without much care given to the end product. I can understand why it is cheaper than other ciders on the market, but the reduced price does not justify the inferior product. Steer clear of this one, folks.

Carmel color. Apple aroma. Not an overly sweet cider, not really a strong apple flavor really in my opinion just a quality cider.

Blairgus (2416) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
25 Mar 2014, bottle. light yellow/pink, clear, no bubbles. nose is a bit harsh apple cider. thin body and mildly fizzy. apple flavor is faint at best, and kind of metallic and artificial. mildly sweet, crisp, some lingering tartness. ok.

I don’t claim to be a cider expert, but this was pretty average and middle of the road. Little bit of apple, sweet, tart, light body and crisp carbonation.

Standard by which other ciders are judged, this is the pub original we all know and love (even if under different names); a bit spiced, a bit chemical, a lot apple, a lot good, balanced tartness. It can be beaten, but it’s up there for a reason.

Slightly fruity not too sweet. Light and easy drinking. Straw color with very little carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edsspoon (141) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Pours clear golden and sparkling with no head. Aroma of apple and hay with some yeast. Taste of apple and sweetness, hint of cinnamon and a bit tarte. Bit artificial tasting, quite nice though.

0,5l Flasche. Goldene Farbe, kein Schaum. Aroma nach Apfel wirkt etwas künstlich, süß. Im ganzen zu flach.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2014
11.2oz bottle, thanks to a rep... Best before 10/2014. Clear golden color, slightly orange. Little ring of white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Good yellow/red apple aroma, nice amount of sweet and juiciness, not too tart or syrupy. Light to medium body. Smooth, lightly crisp light carbonation. Lightly slick, lightly dry in the finish. An alright cider. Not much to it, but better than expected.

Pale yellow colour. Artificial cider with aroma of apples and sugar. Bit watery but refreshing.
