1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
[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"!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
