2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Next door New Ross 5% Aroma is of musty apples and quite suttle. The appearance is light yellow with little carbonation like a chardonnay. The taste is light and fruity with little carbonation a sharp citrus cut and a tadte of pears. It’s not overly sweet, a little dry and moreish. Could be sessionable but the bottle size doesn’t Instigate it.

Clear gold colour. Has a first sharp bite of apples and bitterness, smooths out fast. An ok cider but I prefer mine more dry, still.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
4oz sample at Medicine Hat Beerfest 2014, bottle. Clear light gold, medium carbo. Low aroma of apple juice. Simple profile of juicy apples, dry finish gives it a couple of points above average I suppose. Still, not the kind of cider that rings any bells for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in Nandos. Quite a pleasant if unexciting cider, no grim or harsh flavours and a pleasant sweetish apple hit, but not overly complex.

Very paleyellow pour, no head. Musty apples, and wet paper aromas. Crisp apple flavour trailed by some more musty apples and wet paper. Dry finish, with an odd sweetness. Meh.

330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour. Aroma is sweet, juicy apple with a light mineraliness. Flavour is sweetish apple juice, some vinous character and light minerals. A little dryness in the finish. A touch thin. Ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden, sparkling. Nose is slight champagne, white apple pulp. Sweet leading to a dry, gaseous finish. Straightforward, middle-of-the-road, and better than most macro ciders IMHO.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: 6/10. Apples and alcohol, acidic.
Appearance: 2/5. Pale pineapple yellow-green. Looks like a dilute lager.
Taste: 7/10. Sweet, crisp, acidic apples, some hay and earth notes.
Palate: 3/5. Not as watery a mouthfeel as the appearance would suggest it should have.
Overall: 12/20. Decent hot weather cider. Would have ice cold again, but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
