UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Bottle. Despite the fact that I’m really not a fan of cider, I know it can be a hell of a lot better than this swill.

GoufCustom (874) - HONG KONG - NOV 13, 2013


375 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Clear pale golden colour; No head and only a bliss of pop-like thin white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with initially small and fizzy carbonation; Slightly tart aroma of apple fresh, apple skin, light yoghurt, hint of sugar and light sparkling wine; Mid to light sweet, and strong tart taste of dry sparkling white wine, apple mesh, booze, light tannic, sugar, and hard carbo; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is tart-driven, apple mesh or concentrate in hard-carbo sparkling wine body followed by dollops of syrup which is quite strange but neither cloying nor unpleasant. Not much tannic nor woody taste. Alcohol taste is a bit harsh, a bit scrumpy-like but still localized. Blurrping finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: An over-carbonated macro cider, not much astringency or wood but has some genuine apple character, and the tartness is strong and dominative. Middle of the road, good for easy drinking.

My poison don't knock it. I have been a cider monkey all my life. The bubbles make me happy, the appleide tang gives me strength to get through each day. Why not convert to seed popping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone by Rox

A remarkably good cider considering it is mass produced, and inexpensive. It delivers everything you’d expect of a pleasant cider, but not much more. Definitely worth a drink.

mkel07 (3717) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2010
375ml bottle. Pale and light looking , the colour of champagne. Sweet crisp apple aroma with a nice sweet apple flavour that cleanses the palate.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2010
375ml bottle. Pours a very light straw gold, with, as expected, no head. The aroma mingles some savoury, nutty notes with ripe, sweet apple. It starts quite sweet, with a bitingly tart fruit hit coming in soon after. There is a full-bodied medium-sweet fruit finish. For a macro cider, this is very good. Thoroughly enjoyable, and a good refreshing drink.

Jade (416) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2010
Clear golden colour with moderate to high carbonation. Light apple aroma (lighter then most ciders). Very sweet to the taste. This is quite pleasant, particularly considering it is a mass produced cider.

Muggus69 (1272) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2008
Review from old notes... Served chilled in pilsener glass. Nothing outstanding on the nose; bit of apple, slight yeasty/maltiness to it. Pours a typical looking clean gold-with-a-green-tinge apple juice colour with a good dose of bubbles in there. Carbonation is not too lively on the tongue. Flavour has a bit of caramelised Granny Smith to it, not too sweet. Nice but not outstanding.
