Bottled. Pale yellowish golden colour with tiny sparkling head, that vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is rather sweet artificial apple along with some mild earthyness as well. Flavour is rather sweet artificial apples along with some fruity and rubbery notes.

This was dry and bubbly, almost like champagne. Almost tasteless, but went right to your head. Drank this out of coffee cups with my friends Charlotte and Joe in the dorm kitchen before going out on a night in the town in London.

Bottled. This bottle looked all the world like a beer at the time of purchase. It’s been sitting in my fridge for an age and only now in moment of desperation (there’s no beer in the house) have I opened it. Deep ginger colour. Certainly looks aged or concentrated relative to the cask fresh stuff. Medium, slightly sweet body. Decent length on the palate albeit slightly too sweet for me.

Dirt cheap cider in a large plastic bottle is always a good sign of quality unfortunately this one did not have ’white’ anywhere in the title. Pretty cruddy mass produced cider, artificially overcarbonated with some artificial apple aroma and pretty sweet. Drinks like carbonated water with a touch of apple flavouring, sugar and industrial alcohol. Yummy. Although it is far from being the worst cider I’ve ever tried.

Purchased in Cork City, IRE. Light gold, no head. Aroma is wheat, malt, apples, dust. Taste is a funky apple, malts, some mixed nuts, not very good.

Another case of mistaken identity: Went into a club in London and saw that they had Olde English on tap. Wow, said the yank, mistaking it for the malt liquor of the same name, that’s just weird enough for me to try it.
It was not the 8-ball. No, it was not.
It was bad: flat, sweet, tepid.
There is no Old E in Merry Old England, you’ll have to bring your own.

Golden and artificial looking. Aromas are sour apples with chemicals. Flavours are bitter apples with lots of dryness to follow. Tastes like it was made in a big factory. This cider is just a cheap alcohol carrier. The next beer festival I go to I’m going to rate some real cider.

Can from supermarket in Mosonmagyarovar, Hungary. Yellow color with no head. Aroma, like citrus lemonade, taste pretty the same. Could be refreshing in hot summer days, maybe...

Weak apple nose. Piss like appearance and weak watery taste. A pretty nasty "cyder"
