kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, - APR 5, 2013
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.

En ganska snäll och lite tunn dryck. Lättdrucket och läskande en varm sommardag.

northropfrye (3123) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
Clear light yellow body, lots of active bubbles during to the surface. Sweet apple aroma. Taste is quite sweet considering this was labeled as "dry." Sugary, apples of course. Really nothing complex or subtle about this. I was actually just in Stellenbosch last summer. I can say that South Africa has much better alcoholic beverages than this - including some great craft beer and wine...probably some ciders, too. This one, however, is just okay.

jookos (5096) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2016
Sample@kittys. Golden sparkly. Ripe apples, bit applejammy sweet nose. Sweet pears too. Med light bodied, some sugaryness, dryish finish though clean, bit candy sodapoppy, but not totally too much.

wheresthepath (2052) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle at Park Bar, Reading University. Pale gold and very fizzy. Dry? Are they allowed to call it that when it’s actually horribly, horribly sweet? Little evidence of apples, but a whole lot of evidence of sugar. Very sticky. Straying into alcopop territory. Ghastly.

TedE (842) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2016
330ml bottle into glass. 5.0%. Very faint aroma of apple. Golden yellow, no head, medium carbonation. Flat mouthfeel, finish is slightly tart apple. Nothing bad but not much going on.

330ml bottle @ Nandos, Shrewsbury. Clear yellow. Aroma is sweet apple sugar. Taste is crisp, bright, moderately sweet and clean. Ok.
