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.

geophagus (662) - Lubin, POLAND - SEP 30, 2015
(Bottle 0.33l) Very pale orange, clear colour. Small, rapidly disapearing, white, fizzy foam. Light body, watery texture, medium to high carbonation. Aroma: Red apples, appple skin, winey, soft yeasty. Taste: Moderate sweet, slightly sour, a bit tart, red appples skin, slightly woody. Crisp cider, with a bit to weak aroma, but still easy to drink.

A very nice colored and flavored cider. The aroma of slightly tart apples is very appealing. Well carbonated.

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.

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.

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.

Very pleasant commercial cider. Golden-copper pour with a refreshing apple and caramel body. Lovely on ice.

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.

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.
