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 itís hard to come by different Irish brews. Itís mostly the standards, so this was unusual. Hereís the bad news, it didnít set itself apart from the pack in any way. Itís got that classic tart apple, somewhat vinuous aroma, a slight bit of that yeasty champagne quality. Itís appearance is that clean golden color, with almost no head persay. Not much to look at. Itís 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.

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 Iíll buy it again.

Bottle at home. Pours clear fizzy orange, nose is apple, taste is quite dull, toffee, only light apple.

Little aroma, no head and little carbonation. Light apple start. Some cloves and cinnamon. Finishes a tiny bit tart

EtTuCthulhu (1279) - 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 (4328) - 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)

Nuffield (3743) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2015
It was rather difficult to listen to a sales distributor guy pour samples and tell me about the fine qualities of this "champagne-like"cider. Sweet front and a disappointing, watery finish. Really forgettable stuff. Bottle at Total Wine, Roseville.

It has a nice smell and the bright orange is unmistakable. Only draw back is that it has a bit of a strange aftertaste thatís too appley. Other than that sheís a 20/20

Refreshing sound and appearance. Big carbonation. Some medicinal taste is bothering. A can is too big. half amount is enough. Probably not for the second time.
