This is the kind of shit that made me never give ciders a chance, until I stumbled upon some good ones. Pours like a ginger-ale, clear golden withbig gassy bubbles and a fizzy, rapidly vanishing head. Aroma is sweet syrup with barely a hint of applejuice. Sugary, syrupy sweet, apples as an afterthought. Drainpour.

330ml bottle at and from Bulmers Harvest Cidery Gisborne, NZ. Pinkish-orange hue, very thin bubbly head disappears quickly. Nice sweet and sour apple aroma with an odd old mahogany wood aroma in there. Moderately sweet, with a touch of acidity. Medium body, well carbonated, slightly syrupy texture. lightly dry finish. I enjoyed this and thought it was much nicer than its 15th percentile rating would suggest.

bought the bottle from LCBO, did not have on tap whilst in UK/ireland as I was sampling whiskies and local beers. Got it real cold, this is not bad for a cider, sweet refreshing esp if cold, not much bitter at end, good.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
568ml bottle. A friend bought 3 boxes of this stuff so I had to oblige him in drinking one! Poured a lively pale orange with a rapidly disappearing white one finger head. Quite a distant aroma of sweet apples. Sugary sweet apple flavour, almost no tartness. Overall, dominated by an abrupt sweetness, not in a cloying or gut rotting sort of way. Short finish, a bit of citrus in the aftertaste. Light body - thin even - heavy carbonation though not as offensively fizzy as I expected. Not the worst cider, easy drinking but very uneventful.
