2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
June 2016 - Can share at The Watford BBQ as ’Phoenix Cider’, 5%. Thanks to Matty for bringing this one along. Very pale yellow, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is strong apple juice, Apple Sourz, synthetic apple sweets. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly frothy. Taste is apple, bubblegum, more Apple Sourz. Quite fun. Drinkable but not something I’d return to in a hurry. (2.4)

Can shared in Watford - thanks to Matteo. Pours clear, very pale yellow. Big artificial apple aroma, with some apple candies. Syrupy flavour, gooey, with more tangy apple candies. Light bodied with spritzy carbonation. Sugary finish, gooey and sticky, with more phony apple candies. Meh.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can thanks to Matteo. It pours clear very pale yellow with a tiny white head. The aroma is simple, sweet, golden delicious apple and sugary. The taste is very sweet, white sugar, candied apple, saccharin sweetness with a short, sweet finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Like apple juice from concentrate. Far too sweet for me.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle 33cl, a clear cider, nose is intense on artificial green apples. Aroma is also artificial like, very sweet with aspartame finish, a very poor product. Very less refreshing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Very pale yellow. Modest aroma of sweet, cooked apples. Very sweet. Not all that watery, certainly tastes of apples. Even with the quite high carbonation it’s pretty cloying. Pointless rather than offensive.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
33cl can. Ingredients: water, natural apple cider, sugar, carbon dioxide, E296, E202, E224, E300.
To be honest: it tastes exactly like the ingredients read: Sweet, a bit artificial, but nicely appled and highly drinkable.
A nice cider-containing-drink...
--> ideal for a hot summer day, a bit dry in the aftertaste, green apples, but not more.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml can from a holiday at the island. Pours a sparkling, pale golden body with a short lived, white head. Sweet, ripe apples and apfelkorn on the nose. Tastes like sweet apple juice, light acidic and fruity. Light bodied and a light syrupy texture. Medium carbonation. Pleasant as a soft drink on the beach. Unoffensive.
