3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The nose on this one offers stewed apples and brown sugar. Clear deep golden body looks almost still but has nice colour. Flavour offers exactly what the aroma promised. Some lingering apple skin is notable in the finish. Medium light body with somewhat low carbonation that works perfectly for me... Rather engaging and complex than the majority of industrial ciders this competes against. Just above fridge temperature. Can purchased at Brewery Creek in January 2012.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Honey color, no head, thin body and dry, slight n strange medicinal flavors, bitter plastics (sulfur?), not the best cider I’ve had on this trip, though I do appreciate it’s dry finish and lack of sugar. Bought this in Cashel, Ireland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Light golden body, medium to minimal head. Aroma has fresh green apples. Mouthfeel is a bit watery but the taste is well balanced - medium dry with a mildly tart finish. Not complex by any means but very drinkable because the sweetness is under control and the finish is pleasant. Obviously better than the watered down 4,5% version.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Interesting, though not in a good way: very light, sweet apple aroma, but the taste itself is watery, a bit alkaline, a tiny bit tart, with a bone-dry finish. Not recommended relative even to more commonly-found Irish ciders.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Quite a vibrant pour, large head that disappears immediately, lots of visible carbonation. Aroma: Malty, synthetic apple/cheap apple juice. Flavour: much the same as the aroma with a half decent apple bite. Quick medium dry finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours golden yellow with no head and a few slow CO2 streams. Faint filtered apple juice on the nose. A burst tingly fizziness up front, 8/10-sweet red apples, medium tart green apples, light woodiness, finishing crisp, sweet, clean, slightly puckery. Low complexity, low-medium depth, good transitions, okay carry, good drinkability.

500ml can. Golden, clear, no head. Nose has sweet apple. Semi sweet taste, light spiciness, appleskins in the finish, a little tartness. Medium carbonation and body. Decent, drinkable but fairly mainstream. On par with other Irish ciders.
