golden color smells of apple taste like apple juice and wine, not one of my favorite ciders

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
<i>Draught at Duke of Argyll, London</i>
Blond color, almost no head. Very little apple character here, some sweetness (pleasant), light acidity, but not much character overall. Too simple.

very impartial to this cider, expected snore from Sam smith. Nothing out of the ordinary with this one. Apple aroma, surprise. No head or lacing. Balenced carbonation, which Is key for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
No head. Yellow body with carbonation. Thin watery aroma with faint apple notes. Dry apple taste with wooden notes and some sweetness. Faint metal, too, and a slightly mealy feel. Dryish watery apple aftertaste. Not bad, but very light. (0.5pt on keg at Cittie of Yorke.)

Many Sam Smiths pubs in London. Apple taste is fairly well balanced, maybe a little sweet, but aftertaste is crisp and dry. An OK cider but the bottled one SS does is better. Maybe slightly over-carbonated.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. At Ye Old Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street, London. Clear bubbly gold, tiny little head. Very tart ripe apple aroma, a hint of vinegar sourness. Very light taste, fresh, crisp apple, not too sweet, a mild tartness and a very quick finish. Light body, slightly acidic, nice sharp carbonation - fairly dry, with no linger or aftertaste. Pretty good refreshing light cider.

A Mes rate:
Tap at some Smiths pub in Soho. Aparently medium dry. Balls it’s sweet if you ask me. Only thing dry about it is the finish. yeah yeah.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pale yellow cider with no head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by apples, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry end. OK cider.
