Can from Tesco. Yellow cider with an aroma of apple juice. Taste is dry and slightly sour apple sauce and apple juice. Lots of carbonation. Just about drinkable.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
A truly awful thing to do to an apple. Too little acid to use as a cleaning solution. Too much phenylalanine to use as fruit fly bait. I can think of no gastronomic or industrial use for this liquid.

500 ml can.
Clear light yellow colour. Aroma of sweetish light apple with some weird citrus-like notes. Flavour of mild sour apples, acidity and artificial sweetness. Easy to drink.

Dear god in heaven. What an unpleasant drink, and a horrible blight upon the noble name of cider. Pours a typical, perhaps somewhat weak, cider pale gold with no head. The aroma is unfortunate, consisting of an artificial and sweet apple flavour. The flavour is even worse, unpleasant and with a lingering salty taste; completely artificial as well. To make matters even worse it contains sweeteners; what the devil? A despicable waste of money, avoid this rubbish - I implore you.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml can. Pours fairly dark for a cider, but still a relatively light clear gold. The aroma is metallic and alcoholic, with nothing good going on. The flavour is totally uninspiring. It is mostly just tart, artificial apple. The finish is bizarely salty, and utterly unappealing. Just to illustrate how poor this is, it has added phenylalanine, for God’s sake! Awful stuff.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear pale yellow cider. Aroma of crab apples and yeast twang. Lean bodied, starts slightly sweet, finishes slightly dry, very drying and chemically, like Diet Coke...that would be the artificial sweeteners at work.

Can - yellow/gold. No head. Low to medium carbonation. Smooth. Sweet apple, slight sourness, touch of rotten apple and a strange, slightly burnt taste. Not too bad but maybe would have been better without sweetners,

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2l bottle, now called "Crumpton Oaks Farmhouse Dry Cider" (but the same product).
Pale yellow golden colour, no head. Light-bodied cider, fizzy but ok mouth feel.
Aroma is rather faint, mostly of lemon, with a wee hint at apples.
Fairly standard cider with taste of sour apples, light sweetness (not sickly sweet AT ALL - those below who wrote that should go see a doctor - they’re probably suffering from diabetes), citrus note. Nothing special, but an ok refreshment (well, it’s 2 liters à 5 % - that makes 10 UK alcoholic units per bottle).

Canned 0.5L 4.7%. Clear pale hey coloured. Fast disappearing head. Mild nose. Sour slightly appley taste. Waterly and not very special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2009 Can 50 cl, drank it directly from the can while travelling by train. Aroma of sour apples. The taste is really mild, just like drinking cheap supermarket-brand apple-juice, I like my cider to be a bit more thrilling. But this isn’t a bad one.
