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.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007
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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
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.

Golden yellow without head. Weak apple aroma. Low carbonated with a mild and quite bitter-sour taste.

Keg at The Three Goats Head, Oxford. Gold colour, no head. Well, for my 2,500th rating I get a Cider, how fair is that, and not a real cider to boot, but a commercial keg variety. Having said that, it is not the worst I have had, there is some dry fruitiness and a sharp peel edge to it, but then there is the dreaded gas. I should have marked it lower I suppose, but it is a landmark. Say what you will about Sam Smiths brews, which are average to the extreme, but by god they know how to look after our pub heritage. I hadn’t been in this one for a few years, but it is fantastic, Art Deco ceilings, wood and brass all buffed up a real picture. Visit if you can.

[bottle from brewery] smells of real apples, a little sweet but it has a light spritzy body which made it a decent thirst quencher.

very nice natural apple flavour, with very nice carbonation, would like to try again as one of the best ciders iv had along with westons.
