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

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2005
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.

luckyjim (6) - ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2005 does not count
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

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2005
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.

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 (7396) - 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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2004
Lacks aroma, bit of apple juice. Clear gold with a white small head. Sweet slightly tart apple flavour. Blergh.

Joeh (2049) - 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 (5103) - København, 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.
