McNeillR (983) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Clear pale golden, no obvious head. Smells like a kids clothes store. Sugary and no booze. Squeaky initial taste stampeded over the carbonation. Oversweet, clean as you like - rich wholesome cider mixed with artisan soda water, essentially. Hilarious.

Gurthnar (1249) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 7, 2013
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.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
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.

Cuso (3823) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle from Marks&Spencer, Bratislava. Dark golden color with medium white head. Sweet apples in aroma with some tartness in background. Taste, baked sweet apples, cinnamon. Paired with salty Slovak cheese. Nice combination. Overall easy drinkable cider.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
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.

Fin (7040) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2011
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.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2011
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.

Bullit (3857) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle from Marks & Spencer. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet apple, apple syrup, little spicy. Flavour is sweet apple, apple sauce. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly sweet and slightly dry finish. Not bad at all.

downender (5923) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2010
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.
