2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not being a cider drinker the results were always going to be bad. Pours lighter and cloudier than a typical wit. Light hint of apples on the nose and has a little bit of a sourness on the front palate.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At just on cool and straight into the ol’ pint. Cloudy and opaque in the glass; a palest, pastel yellow in colour with very light carbonation. Highly mineralised is the faint apple peel nose with a weird edge of plasticine and Blu-tak™. Quite tart and tight in the mouth with a drawing acidity more akin to citrus than apple. A hint of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon sherbet and green apple pulp fades quickly after the swallow. It’s got plenty of body to its credit with a foamy, overall dry mouthfeel. Lingers with something reminiscent of raw enoki mushroom, but hey maybe that is just me. I didn’t mind this one ruling out the aftertaste and aroma. Easily quaffable stuff!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A dry, crisp, highly carbonated apple cider. Nothing out of the ordinary. Solid quaffer with a touch of sweetness behind the dry finish

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Tastes like vinegar with some apples added to it, crisp and dry. Looks very pale and thin and has lots of apple in the aroma as you would expect.
