2 litre bottle from sainsbury, Walsall. Golden cider with residual head. Aroma of faint apple juice. Taste is apple juice, sweetener and some dryness. Too fizzy. Drinkable.

Canned. Orange in colour with plenty of fizz. Sweetish, apple pulp upfront, with a touch of tartness in the finish. Ok.

Chemical Apple to the nose, possible burned apple too. Drying on the tongue, synthetic, chemical apple, worth the 75p per can...just.

Can, thx to fonefan. A clear, yellow cider with a rim of white bubbles on top. No carbonation. Earthy nose with apples and a touch of burnt rubber. The flavor is dominated by apples, both sour apples and apple cores. Dry, pleasantly carbonated mouthfeel and a bit thin. Sourish apples in the end. Not bad, but the aroma put me off a bit, at least the first minutes. Well, I won’t miss drinking again. 101112

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2010
Can, 5.3%. Distinct white wine aroma, a little yeasty. Clear yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour is dry, but not bone dry. Tastes a lot like fizzy white wine. Not great, but not as bad as many other macro ciders.
