downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2010
Golden coloured with some decent fizz. Aroma of dryish apples, oak and a hint of core and skin. Flavour was similar, with plenty of semi-tart, juice, wood and a dryish finish. Not a bad effort for a supermarket cider.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2008
Gold. Sweet fruity aroma and taste. Just a little tartness, but not enough. It’s a typical supermarket cider with an ’organic’ label to make us feel better about the dull and predictable stuff we’re drinking.
