A very good cider. A little soft on the Apple flavor compared to other brands but overall a really tasty drink.

I like ciders and I like Sammy Smith. But, as a surprise, this one did not score. Surprisingly this one was just a mixture of citrus Aroma and loads of sourness. And, unsurprisingly, I donated the rest of my glass to McTapps. Huge disappointment.

Pours out of the bottle in a clear light golden-vanilla colour with medium to thin body. Fresh aroma of apples and straw. Taste of mild sour freshly picked apples, sour berries, leaves and grass. Easy and nice to drink, very refreshing and tasty. Dry-crisp finish.

355 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Translucent pale golden colour; Near zero head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Almost no lacing with barely notable soft carbonation; Tart aroma of apple juice, light white wine, wood and sugar; Light sweet and slightly tart taste of apple wine, light alcohol, soda, light wood, and hint of tannic; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is nearly non-sweet, slightly tart apple wine with strong hint of booziness, plus some light wood, very little tannic. Soda taste prominent; Pretty dry after taste, quite easy to mouth.

Comments: After Westonís Old Rosie Scrumpy, this one is the least sweet and strong boozy cider Iíve had so far. Very little sweetness, thin body, strong carbo, and quite boozy, otherwise thereís not much cider characters. Better than most sugary macro ciders and thatís about it. Not top at all.

Great taste every time. I love this cider. It just doesnít tats like a holiday cider, but has that distinct taste of a beer that will stand alone through any meal

Bottle. Yellow body. Thin white head with zero retention. Visibly fizzy body. Nose is apples, white sherbet, apple juice, green apple skins. Some tang, some sweetness, some bitterness. Dry finish. Refreshing.

Pours a deep, clear golden with a small, fizzy head that dissipates quickly into an outer ring. Thereís a decent amount of visible carbonation and a mild amount of lacing. Has a big, sugary apple aroma with tome tartness in the background. Very sweet all the way down the tongue until the mildly dry finish. Itís kind of fizzy going down, but is light and easy to drink. Overall: The sugar is much stronger on this one than is really needed, but itís pretty good nonetheless.

milewide (1537) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Totally bland compared to MI ciders. Dry ending typical of European ciders. Clear color with little head. Organic cane sugar addition might be fine in Britain---but completely unimpressive in MI!!!

Bottle at The Princess Louise. Clear gold lasting white head lots of carbonation. Stewed apple apple pie aroma. Some character from some apple skins. Itís ok a medium sweet cider.

500ml bottle. Clear pale yellow colour, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates away and aroma of apples, spice, alittle woody. Taste is slightly tart apple with some spice and an earthy note. Light bodied, high carbonation, dry & tart at the finish. Quite OK.
