Ungstrup (29850) - 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.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<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.

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.
