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.

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

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 hadnít 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.

a pretty average cider, very apple-y and generally too sweet for my own tastebuds, though during summers can be a nice and very refreshing change

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet apple nose, of course. Light clear gold color, no head. Sweet without any sour, so it comes off like apple juice. Need some tartness or tannens in there to give this some character...any character.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2010 One of the less unpleasant Sam Smiths efforts at the end of the RB London Christmas pub crawl. Thereís even a very slight funky edge to the aroma, but itís 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).
