When I first started drinking I loved cider, especially Scrumpy Jack. However, I really lost the enthusiasm for these brews. This was a unique item, as it’s hard to come by different Irish brews. It’s mostly the standards, so this was unusual. Here’s the bad news, it didn’t set itself apart from the pack in any way. It’s got that classic tart apple, somewhat vinuous aroma, a slight bit of that yeasty champagne quality. It’s appearance is that clean golden color, with almost no head persay. Not much to look at. It’s taste, nothing unusual, a sour, cider flavour with a bit of acidic sting. The feel is rather normal as well, thin bodied, light on texture, abrupt in finish, and moderately high on carbonation. Nothing special, super forgettable. Snooze-fest.

From bottle at Palace Theatre, Manchester, with KL, LH and KS 10.05.15. Golden. Small, white head. Apple in taste. Good drinkability. Dry. Nothing special, but OK. Apples in aftertaste.

330cc bottle. Clear pink orange with no head. Some sourness in the nose and mouth. Sweet and kind of boring drink.

Bright aroma, but not very apple-y. Fine, light brown colour. Somewhat tart. An average cider that is not too sweet, but not interesting enough that I’ll buy it again.

EtTuCthulhu (1329) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2015
This cider pours a clear dark golden with no head, and the aroma is dry with some apple sweetness. The taste is slightly sweet and mildly sour, and it finishes dryly. The mouthfeel has a slick texture, light body, and a nearly flat carbonation.

unclemattie (4350) - Georgia, USA - MAR 17, 2015
12oz bottle. Odd hue. Smells of sour pee. Tastes of layers of apple character. Different juices. Oak notes. Gets better after another, after another. (4310)
