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.

"Meh. An average representation of a below average style. Light crisp apple aroma and flavor. Semi sweet and dry. A little musty perhaps, lacking any real life."

Provided from friends for my birthday party. Overall, not a bad cider, but there are definitely better ciders out there. Finishes dry with a light sourness, not too sweet. Decent stuff.

Nice Irish cider. Golden colour, somewhat sour aroma, nice fresh on a warm evening. Great cider that is generally available.

Bottle: pours a nice golden orange color... Smells like sweet apples, and tastes much the same. Iím not a big cider drinker, but this was pretty good as long as the situation is right.
