RobBestwick (845) - Calgary, Alberta, - OCT 23, 2007
568ml bottle. Sweet apple aroma. Bright copper in appearance with no head. This cider is very highly carbonated. Sweet apple juice flavour but quite thin and with no real character. Slightly dry finish.

alexmate (74) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2016
A fairly average cider. Taste is medium verging towards dry. Obvious apple notes, some caramel, some slight floral blossom and yeast notes. The after-taste is sharp, but not too nasty. This cider isn’t too synthetic and is an OK drink at a party or a BBQ, but not recommended. Price paid: £1.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Appearance: Clear amber with white head. Aroma: Apple, caramel, note of barnyard and leather. Taste: Medium sweetness, low/medium acidity and tannin. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium texture, average/prickly carbonation, lingering fairly tart, tangy apply dry finish. Comments: Very refreshing and tasty. This rating is for 4.5% ABV bottled version Gaymers Orignal. Assuming this is the right place to rate this one?

imdownthepub (13374) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Bottled, 1 Pint from Co-Op in Banbury. Pale gold with no head. Sweet, fruity but in a sweet apple way, quite a fleshy fruit along with a perfumed note. Pretty average.

danlo (2602) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
568ml bottle from local shop. Golden colour, fizzy foam white head that quickly dissipates to a thin layer and aroma of apple & slight barnyard note. Taste is similar with artificial sweetish and tart apple. Light bodied, high carbonation, dryish finish. OK.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Aroma is over ripe apples. Golden colour. Taste is ripe apples to start then the astringent artificial sweetener kicks in. Not horrible, but the taste is let down by the too sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of those ciders you drink and forget after a few moments. Bit artificial, bit low in aroma and bit industrial-sweetish. Drinkable for the masses and me but nothing more.
