Bottle. Clear light gold pour. Sweet apple aroma and taste. Simple and straightforward, but just okay.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden, typical but still appetizing. Crisp, strong aroma is like a fresh-cut apple - with an attitude. Flavor is typical of a cider, but refreshing and enjoyable. Sweet like apple juice, what my childhood buddies Carolyn and Rhoda called the "Drink of Youth" but with a subtle alcohol kick. Texture is OK, considering this is a cider. Get your rhino on! (And save the rhinos!)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - This cider smells of ripe apples and sugar. It tastes of sweet apples. Too sweet. It’s drinkable, but they really overdid the sugar, in my opinion. It’s okay.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle given to me for free.
A: Pale gold color with a very thin white head. Bubbles drifting throughout.
N: Sugary apple, orange, sweet-tarts, lots of sugars, white grape.
T: Very, very sweet.
M: Light body, crisp carbonation, alcohol shows up a bit.
O: This is an alcopop. It’s fine, but it’s not exactly a mind-opener.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle at home. Pours a crystal clear yellow with no head. Aroma is sweet apples with a hint of alcohol. Fairly sweet. Nice cider.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow pour, no head. Lightly sparkling. Nose of apple juice, starch, and cleaning solution. Flavor is very sweet, frozen apple juice straight out of the can not yet rehydrated. And just an off something that I don’t have the vocabulary to specify, chemically like some sort of fermentation byproduct. On the other hand, it’s not that much worse than drinking juice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"Easy drinking, but definitely lacks the depth (or at least the brightness) in the flavor and aroma I’ve grown accustomed to, and you can taste the alcohol in there at a low abv. perhaps the score is a little low, but it didn’t stack up to the others I had that day..."

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Strange apple aroma. Golden with no head. Taste is cidery and a little sweet.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hastily yellow with streams of carbonation rising a decent pace.
The smell had apples in a slight sour sharp way and ending up becoming vinous.
The taste was sweet and tart apple in a vinous sort of way. Bad tart apple/vinous aftertaste and super dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with no where close to having any good sessionability about it. I need water after this.
Overall, wow, what a bad cider, just when I was warming up to some of these, I go and have this. I wouldn’t touch this with a ten foot pole.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad hard cider, but definitely not the best one I've had either. The taste almost reminds me of wine even though you can taste the apples in this.
