2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rating #867 - Notes from previous tastings. Have had this on tap and from tallboy cans. Clear, pale yellow colour, fairly carbonated. Aroma is sweet apples. Taste is pleasant, not unbearingly sweet. The best of the beasts.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Dark golden, medium carbonation. Aroma is lightly spiced apples, some gipsum. The palate is fairly macro-cider-typical, but lighter on the syrup/sweet factor and finishing very dry. So extra points for actually not disgusting me, but still not my type of cider.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, pours a copper color with no head. Aromas of spiced apples. Flavors of dried baked apples. No carbonation. OK as an apple flavoured drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tall can. Pours golden, high carbonation. Nose of slight apple, farmyard. Moderate tannin. May have some artificial flavouring but not definite. Fairly tart. As JoeMcPhee said it’s like a Magners/Bulmers, a tad lighter... for an industrial cider actually this was quite good, who cares who made it that doesn’t factor into my ratings.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from the LCBO, this is a maco cider imported to Canada from the UK. This cidar pours a rich golden hue, with a fizzy head. The aroma notes include sour apples, ripe fruit, flowery, and a little pungent. Tasting notes include sweet apple, snappy tartness, and a medium dry finish
Not bad, but there are far better Ciders our there.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep gold. Sweet apple aroma. Magners-esque. A touch of skin flavour/tannins. Refreshing though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a deep golden color cider with light carbonation. Taste is dominated by sweet apple upfront with a dry finish. No fake apple notes though fresh apple notes are not as dominant as I would have expected. Definitely different then your standard British canned cider but missing a little something.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
super carbinaded. Oranger amber. Smell’s of light sweet apple juice and taste that way with a little water. Thin bodied but each sip doe’s not sit well with me and hurt’s a bit. So not the worst or best cider but I don’t like it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can. Pours gold, no head, lots of carbonation bubbles. Nose has some tartness, some leathery notes. Taste has some sweet apple up front but gets dry quick. Fairly plain and quick finish. Pretty refreshing, better than a lot of canned ciders, but pretty mainstream.
