Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 16, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 This one is great, is the first I have tried in Europe that I like. It has a strong but a sweet flavor at the time.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2010 One of the less unpleasant Sam Smiths efforts at the end of the RB London Christmas pub crawl. There’s even a very slight funky edge to the aroma, but it’s just too sweet to command any respect. Keg at the Brewery Tap - that is, the old Courage Brewery tap, not Sam Smiths brewery tap. (5/3/4/2/8 = 2.2)
RE-RATE. On draught at the Princess Louise, Holborn, August 2009. Sweet & appley aroma. Not too unpleasant. Sweet finish but not too sticky. Seems a little less sickly than previously. (5/3/5/2/9 = 2.4).
Score updated.

Lacks aroma, bit of apple juice. Clear gold with a white small head. Sweet slightly tart apple flavour. Blergh.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2004
Keg at the "World’s Funniest Pub", The Anchor Tap, Tower Bridge, London..
Very bad cider. It’s like Strongbow. As Silk says, this is absolutely NOT real cider.
Sampled on the Ratebeer London Meetup & Pub Crawl, December 2004. With Silktork, Chris_o, & Kook.

Hildigöltur (5104) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Quite sweet, but still very sparkling and refreshing. Nice natural apple flavour.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2004 (Keg, at the Kings Arms, York, England) Descent cider, if you are into ciders.

Cheap, as are all Sam's products, and pretty good for the price. A bit sweet for me, but certainly drinkable.

Frank (2757) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Pours a glowing pilsner golden with no head. Nose of tart apples. Reminds me slightly of the Lindeman's Faro I had the other day due to the sourness only a bit sweeter with less carbonation. Definite earthy notes. Nicely sweet but not at all cloying. Slightly vinous. A very fine cider indeed.

Very nice. Musty, tangy, much more lively than most ciders I’ve had.
