1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
500ml bottle- For someone who drinks nothing but cider, this is a disappointment! I’ve had draught pints of this and have loved them, but this bottled pint is awful!!
Way too sweet, yet somehow managed to be acidic at the same time! I managed to drink 1/2 a bottle but couldn’t touch another drop!! Why the difference between draught and bottle?! I thought bulmers fruit ciders were sweet, but this is something else!!

Clear, .33cl bottle. Pale, light yellow color. No fizz. Aroma of fresh juice. Tastes of bottled apple juice. Added sugary presence. Its kinda tasty, not really a cider. More of an Alco- pop. (4002)

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
330ml bottle bought at Circle-K in Sheing Shui Centre.
Clear pale golden yellow colour; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with notable slight carbonation; Strong sweet smell of apple juice, oxidized + juiced apple fresh and sugar; Medium sweet taste of apple juice, faint alcohol, sugar, and hint of apple wine; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is near 100% macro apple juice of the faceless kind: no bite, almost no character, sweet, no tannic and go nowhere. The faint alcohol background is much more tolerable than its Pear Cider counterpart, but the apple wine hint reminds me this is a spiked apple juice. Damn… Wet after taste. Sweet and void to mouth.
Comments: How dare they put out this sub-standard, spiked apple juice to the public and call it a Cider and getting away with it for so many years! I guess the unsuspecting general public doesn’t care. Well, I do. Drinkable as an apple juice, hope you won’t fall for this scam. Never again!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is apples and a pervasive fruit perfume. The flavor is light apples, citrus and cloying sweetness in the finish. It wasn’t horrendous but based on the almost dozen ingredients, it didn’t help in the flavor really or was it "natural".

Smell is of fresh sweet apples. Taste is sweet leaning. Light carbonation but tart. Pretty good, I thought, on draft.
