It’s very refreshing. It tastes like wine. It has alcohol. It’s something I can down a six pack in a sunny afternoon. BUT IT’S NOT BEER. My all fours rating doesn’t reflect my opinion of this superb product, just a protest against its listing here.

Clear yellow body with a light white head that dissipates quickly. Strong aroma of apple, with a taste to match and an overall sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared. Pours clear golden with a minimal off white head. Aroma of green apples, red apples, apple skin, apple core, chopped slices of apple, apple juice and crushed pips of the apple. Flavor is apple. Light bodied with moderate carbonation and heavy apple.

Gurthnar (2362) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma sweet, some fruity fermentation left-overs, instantly reminding the first shy attempts at cider made here in Slovakia now. One would think they must be made by the same person. Clear yellow colour. Taste is like having sex in canoe. Sweet, with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Neutral watery finish. I guess this is okay for mass-market, but not so much for a more demanding drinker.

Liamrua (49) - Waterford, IRELAND - NOV 1, 2014
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.

panzerwolf (125) - FINLAND - OCT 18, 2014
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.

DuffMan (7220) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
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.

JorgeLee (1314) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle in Nandos. Quite a pleasant if unexciting cider, no grim or harsh flavours and a pleasant sweetish apple hit, but not overly complex.

robinvboyer (3332) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
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.
