2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can as Symonds Scrumpy Jack, 6%, BB April 2015. I think I had my last Scrumpy Jack 10 years ago. Anyway, this is clear orange, sparkling, small foamy white head doesn’t endure. Aroma is sweet apple, isotonic drink. Body is light, tingly carbonation, foamy, touch of tooth-rot. Taste is watery apple, centre of a kiwi, fairly dry finish. Simple inoffensive cider. Pretty drinkable overall. Decent enough on a hot day.

440ml can from the Scotmid. Pours clear golden, thin white head, tight bubbles. Surprisingly attractive. Aromas of cooking apples, sulphur. Taste is chalky, more cooked apples. Astringent finish. Looks good, goes downhill from there.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from a mate. Thanks, I think. Pours slightly bright yellow orange. Lots of bubbles. Classy. Aroma is a bit sickly, but there are apples in there. Taste is too sweet, a bit of fruit tang by mostly artificially sweet. Intensely carbonated palette. Well, it is what it is. The best of a fairly sorry bunch (i.e. canned macro ciders).

Can from Seoul Plaza. Aroma very simple, apples, red, slightly vinegary and/or solventy. Clear deep golden colour. Taste is about the same, simple, straight-forward. Very average and boring. Too high ABV to serve as a session drink.
