maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottled 05/07/14. A greeny gold coloured cider with no head. A sweet and fizzy cider. A bit of a sparkling wine feel to it. It’s ok but there’s certainly not enough apple flavours at all.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Pale yellow gold with a very fast disappearing white head. Smells of sour apples.A soft apple juice sweetness with a light sour aftertaste. Very watery but unoffensive. Easy to drink but lacks any character. I like the medium oily body.
