Bottle. Poured a straw like yellow with a very small white fizzy head that disappeared in a matter of seconds and had no lacing. The aroma was overwhelming with a strong scent of vinegar and a mild green apple. It tasted sweet and acetic with a stong vinegar presence from start to finish and had a slight apple flavor at the end. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall NOT GOOD at all. I normally don’t drink Cider. Although I thought being made by Samuel Smith’s it might be good, guess I was wrong

Pours a hazy straw color with a quickly vanishing head. Smells? Of apples no surprise. Tastes of apples with some tartness. Very watery and unexciting. Overall? There are many ciders way better than this.

*Old rating. Slightly sourish with a fruity and sweetish apple aroma. Nice and crisp, fresh but not too deep. Highly drinkable!

HuskerTan (1450) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle. A- White wine, dry, grapes. A- Pale yellow color, clear liquid, minimal fizzy head. T- Vanilla, honey, cotton candy, white wine, apples. P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, sweet finish. O- I love Sam Smith and generally don’t care for ciders so had no idea where this was headed. The aroma was awful. Smelled like a cheap white wine. Surprisingly the taste was quite good. Light and full of flavors, not just apple. The taste saved this beer.

I’ve had a couple of ciders recently which I liked, but this one seems very ordinary and unexciting. I would surmise that ’organic’ means quite something with apples as they are one of the most heavily sprayed crops, with loads of pesticides used on them commercially. However, this cider is very plain across the board, aroma, looks, flavor, mouthfeel, and has zero complexity.

From the bottle marked SE0501. Not sure what that means,. The pour is golden yellow with a fizzy white head and head and busy carbonation. The apple fruit is evident in the aroma but so is the corn and grain. Light, refreshing body but typical for a cider. Good apple quality to the taste with a clean finish. I don’t mind ciders because I find them to be refreshing. It is hard fir me tio rate them as beers though.

kajser27 (1122) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 2, 2015
Clear, golden colored, small diminishing white head. Aroma is of apple juice, some tart apples, light+ horse blanket. Taste is moderate sweet apples, tart apples and peel, just the right amount of moderate tartness, some funky barnyard notes. Semi dry finish, crisp. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Really good cider. (on tap, Earl of Lonsdale, London)

Marduk (5380) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear dark golden color. Brief bubbly white head. Acidic, leather, very sour apples in aroma. Sweetish, clove, apples, spicy in taste. Crisp mouthfeel. Little vinegary and farmhouse touch in aftertaste. Drinkable if nothing else is available.
