RobBestwick (583) - Calgary, Alberta, - NOV 18, 2007
Cider apple aroma with some champagne like hints. Champagne like appearance, highly carbonated. Slightly sour apple flavour with some peppery and spicey notes. Has a dry and tart finish, not a bad cider.

MiP (13597) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2008
Bottle, 5%. Very pale colour, almost water. Sweetish apple flavour. Not like Swedish crap cider, but a little too sweet. Good citric notes, though, making it tolerable.

scotty (1052) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2007
Very pale straw in colour, it IS slightly sparkling....on the verge of being flat actually. Has a light appley nose, and a light appley flavour. Quite dry, with a fresh zippy acidity. Hey! this is ok! I’m pleasantly surprised.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2007
Very pale gold. Sweet fruit aroma. Very sweet taste. Nothing much else. Oddly I quite enjoyed it, being in the mood for something sweet and fizzy. But next time I’ll have a Pimm’s instead.
