Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
On cask at the Rook and Gaskill. Pours an extremely light straw colour with an aroma of sweet apples and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation. Quite sweet overall.

wheresthepath (1445) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2011
[Polypin at the Three Crowns, Chippenham] Clear with slight greenish-gold hints - one of the palest ciders I’ve ever seen. Aroma of meths and nail varnish remover. Tastes overwhelmingly sweet, there’s a hint of unripe aplles in there but there must have been a load of sugar added, surely - this is like syrup solution. Evident alcohol - this is probably favoured by tramps. Tellingly, on my drunkenly scrawled notes the words "this will make you ill" have subsequently been amended to "this will make you dead"!

downender (5907) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
From a polycask at the Portcullis, Clifton, Bristol 23/01/10. Pale, almost colourless, green in colour. Sweet apple juice with plenty of sugar. The alcohol was very well hidden, which could make this dangerous, if forgettable drinking.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2009
Real at Old Bank. Very pale white wine coloured, no head, actually looks like wellwater. Nose is alcohol, turpentine, mild pear and vinegar. Flavor has nail polish, alcohol, natural pale apple juice, vinegary nasties, sweet cheap white wine finish. Light to medium bod, low carbonation, nearly flat palate. Cheap white winey cider loaded with nasties.

bierkoning (9822) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2009
Cask @ Marble Arch Manchester. Clear as water. Soft apple aroma. Sweet apple flavor with hints of lemon. Sticky mouthfeel. Forgettable.

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2009
Polycask at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 07-05-09 Pours looking every bit like a glass of tap water. Tastes like sugared water with some appley flavour. There is no doubt that this was popular amongst some of the cider crowd, but for me this was the worst cider on offer by a country mile, though I suspect that it may well be one of the first cider’s to sell out.
