berkshirejohn (4525) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
568ml bottle from my local Co-Op. A basic commerical cider; straw coloured with a rapidly fading white head; appley aroma; crisp apple taste; and a dry finish. Does exactly what it needs to do - nothing more.

GoufCustom (820) - HONG KONG - JUN 8, 2014


568 ml bottle bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Clear light amber colour; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very small lacing and active carbonation; Sweet and light tart aroma of apple juice, with sugar, very light yoghurt, light alcohol and light tannic; Close to light sweet taste of light apple juice, with soda water, faint alcohol, shades of tartness and faint tannic; Light body, thin but slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is very thinned apple juice, somewhat slightly sluggish. Low sweetness, almost no tartness and tannic, just so inoffensive and unexciting. Ho-hum… Fairly dry after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: Just like Bulmer Pears, this is just another cheap cider loaded with so many cheap sugary adjuncts, and it manages to underwhelm in a big way. A family-friendly table drink, inoffensive but no thanks!
