3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear golden to orange colour. Overall rather sweet and red apple evoking. Light pleasant sourness. Indeed refreshing. Finish is balanced sweet and sour, a bit sticky, which does not annoy in cider. Best cider from our local Marks&Spencer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark gold with a transient white head. Appletize, mouldering fruit, cork, light vinegar aroma. Bright and effervescent with a sweet, slightly dank Lindemans’s Faro-like and Appletize character. Plenty enough sherbet tang, acidity and mouldering fruit to keep it from being cloying. Tasty, summery stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden brown with a thin head and steady carbonation. Aromas are earthy stewed apple with hints of pear. Dusty icing sugar with some tart barnyard notes. Flavours are sweet, ripe apple with brown sugar and some tart lemon. Underlying toffee. Spritzy on the palate. I like this style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from M&S, Bicester consumed 12.06.11 Pours warm glowing gold with good clarity. Loads of mushy cooked apples, sweet dessert apply flavour’s you can almost taste the pastry, cinnamon and spice in this and the aroma is very apple pie. Its good, in fact very good for a 2% cider wonderfully juicy, refreshing and I think I will buy a few for the summer festivals on offer 6 for 5 along with all the single bottled beers, ciders etc at M&S at the moment.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle from M&S Simply Food outside Chelmsford railway station. I picked up 5 rates in this small shop alone. Cool. Eaten with pepperoni and blue cheese pizza and watching The Goodies. Can’t get a better ambience than that. Gold clear in colour, any head disappears, but plenty of bubbles in evidence at bottom of glass. Rather a lovely fresh apple aroma. Some bramley cooking apple aroma. Easy drinking cider. It does remind me of my Mother’s stewed apples for dessert on a Sunday but cold and with some bubbles in it.. Medium in terms of sweetness. Fine stupidly drinkable but not a huge amount of character. Apart from the stewed Bramleys that is.

Gold, with a decent, foamy white head and plenty of carbonation. Sweet, dessert apple aroma with a touch of toffee. Flavour was similarly sweet, with a vague hint of cinnamon. Inoffensive drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale and spritzy. Full sweet apple aroma which carries into the mouth. Very sweet and lightly chalky. It is delicious but goes down much like a soft drink. Excellently fresh and exciting.
