3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost a soft drink. Appletiser(r) made from apples and with a finer carbonation.
Surprisingly pleasant tasting for a 2% ABV labelled ’sweet’.
Shared single 750ml bottle between 3 with roast pork dinner, nicely palate cleaning though couldn’t, and wouldn’t want to, drink it by the pint. It would probably go well with a crumble or similar dessert.

The taste is crisp, apple, pear, mild fruity tartness, Appletizer, apple pie and touch of vanilla with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation.
