Not much of an aroma, they put a lemon wedge in it which is rarely a good sign. Dry as the name suggests, thin and average at best.

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 (2009) - 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 (792) - 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.

Boutip (5581) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color cider. Aroma of dry apple notes. Taste is quite dry with limited amount of complexity. The apple notes don’t come out as much as I was expecting with a dry finish that limits drinkability. Never had such a dry cider.

Calisky (2342) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 26, 2015

jaghana (5238) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle 33cl, a clear pale yellow cider with low head. Nose is on apple juice with dusty notes. Aroma is on ripped apples, low on apple juice, some acidity, less complex, sweetness on aftertaste, low body, touch of plastic, but it remains drinkable.
