1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Few sips from wife’s bottle. A cider in category ’this is what you find from supermarket’. Taste has a little bit apples, and it is mostly dry. Calling this cider interesting would probably insult people who make the premium stuff. I am not a great fan of even so called good stuff, but I must admit this is worse. Although not quite as bad as some 3 litter size-of-an-alcoholist ciders are.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Billingham Tesco. Pale yellow golden colour, foam white head leaving alittle lacing and tart apple skins aroma. Light apple flavour, slightly sweetish, straw & watery notes. Light bodied, soft carbonation, some hints of earthiness with a dry fairly clean finish. Quite OK cider.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a great smell - a bit cheesy. Pretty nice colouring and no head. Doesn’t really have a lot of flavour.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pale yellow cider. Quite a lot of fizz in this one. Aroma of sour apples. Taste is medium sweet, apples and some sweetener. Not very well balanced, drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
6% abv in a 330ml bottle from South-Africa.
Ingredients: Apple cider, Fruit & Maize Sugar.
trocken-fruchtig im Antrunk. Der Hauptteil ist fruchtig-herb, keine Süße spürbar. Im Nachgeschmack angenehm sauer-trocken apfelig. Rund, aber auch dünn wirkend.
--> nicht sehr süffiger, trockener Cider. Spannend!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold pour, no head, medium carbonation. White wine smell more so than apple. Tastes a bit like a cheap white wine with apple lollies, dry finish but has an artificial tang to it. Move on, nothing to see here.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle bought at ParkNShop Superstore in Fanling.
Clear light golden yellow colour; Almost no head and minimal residual white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Almost no lacing with barely notable carbonation;Tart aroma of apple juice, sparkling white wine, light wood and sugar; Very light sweet and strong tart taste of sparkling white wine, apple juice, wood and tannic; Light body, dry and thin palate; Mouth feel is pretty dry, thin and quite tart macro cider, lightly sweet, strong musty taste and occasional flash of booze. Somewhat hollow with further sips. Lame and harmless half-ass semi-finish; Dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: It has the look and feel of a macro and it shows. It has decent dryness but beyond that, nothing leaves you satisfied. An easy RSA tick and nothing more. Cheap stuff.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Somewhat "water with a color", without any foam at all. Is has a champagne-like aroma. It also tastes like champagne, but it also has the touch of apple. It has a bitter-sour aftertaste.
Echt als "water met een kleurtje" zonder een schuimkraag. Het aroma is zurig als champagne. Dit komt ook terug in de smaak, maar hier komen ook de toetsen van appel in voor. De nasmaak is zoet-zurig.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cider I first tasted at Tshokwane picnic area, Kruger N.P. It has dropped half a percent since then and can now be found regularly in UK supermarkets. Nice and refreshing if a little lacking in complexity, a big brewer’s cider so no surprises there. Tastes of apples and rice with perhaps a hint of artificial sweetener.
