downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2010
Tasted immediately after the medium sweet version. Gold, no head, slight carbonation. Aroma was sweet, with some apple juice and touch of spice. Flavour was again sweet, with apples, a mineral edge and hint of wood, before a stringy, medium finish. Not very nice.

Bullit (3961) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2009
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Golden colour, no head. Nose of sour apple, wood, and a bit of earthyness. Flavour is more sweet, hint of wood, slightly dry. Medium carbonated.

Swilled this outta a huge wine goblet as if I were that crazy cat Keith Floyd(eccentric drunken British TV chief) so I hadta keep having "a little slurp" of this , to borrow his catchfraise.
This Cider aint what I’d describe as being dry as suggested on the bottle. A very juicy apple texture..giving sweetness and only faint dry vibes . I got woodiness,earth and some late wild fUnK in the finish. Turn up the dryness and this would be very good. It is an enjoyable Cider now either way.

rauchbier (3592) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle, from Sainsburys Grimsby. Gold, no head and minimal condition. Low apple citrus in the nose, quite sweet and apple skin accented in the mouth, short sweet apple in the finish with a slight chalkiness.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2008
Bright gold. Slightly ashy apple aroma with a hint of raisins. Sweet, rich sticky taste with a little dryness. What is the medium sweet version going to taste like?

shrubber85 (7294) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle. Sour apple aroma. Light golden yellow color. Sour apple flavor - slight dryness only. Pretty much an average chain cider.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2006
Bottled. A thick tasting cider, on the sweet side of medium dry, the Westons oak is there but rather unsubtle.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2005
A 500ml bottle from Sainsburys.. Typical cider appearance with fairly fierce carbonation. Syrupy apple juice, alcohol and wood aroma. The flavour is sweet (almost too sweet), thick and syrupy with a fair dose of the typical Westons oak barrel taste and readily apparently alcohol character. I would not call this medium, never mind dry - this is very much a sweet cider.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2005
Aroma is ripe apples with some spicey oaked notes. Taste is similar and full, though i found it a little warm as my bottle was warm so put ice in it to chill it a little, therefore weakening it slightly. Easily drinkable cider though dangerous due to the fact each bottle has 5 units in it and is only £1:59 each.

Bottle, Yellow gold with heavy carbonation. Rich, apple peel flavour with a decent alcohol kick and sweet fruit. Nicely drinkable on a hot day.
