COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: I England har man brygget æblecider i umindelige tider. Og den stolte tradition er udgangspunktet for udviklingen af Somersby Apple Cider. Dog har vi tilpasset vores cider til den danske smag. I aromaen oplever du en duft af dejlige solmodne sommeræbler, og smagen afsluttes med en behagelig syre. Farven er gylden og med perlende bobler.

English: Somersby Cider is a refreshing, sparkling and natural cider with 15% apple juice and 4.7% alcohol. Best enjoyed on ice. Ingredients: Apple wine, sugar, concentrated apple juice, carbonation, flavours, citric acid, natural aroma and 3 different E-numbers.

Editor’s note: Available in Denmark through Carlsberg, and in Norway through Ringnes.

PorterPounder (5592) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Albany, Ga - Warehouse Package Store - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light golden, light bubbly head. Aroma has some fresh golden delicious apples a hint of sour apple candy flavor. Flavor has a solid apple profile to it with some golden delicious apples, a touch of granny smith tartness. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Better than expected.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
Tall can. Pours brilliant straw coloured. Nose of apple soda, taste is even sweeter than that -- MUCH sweeter. None of the defining characteristics of an English cider. This is ghastly, I was hoping to have a stretch without a rating this low but Somersby has succeeded in failing.

Dervock (501) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Can - very pale sweet apple aroma. Very light flavour, sweet pink lady like. Finish is sugary sweetness. Nice flavour but too sugary.

Argonian (279) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pale golden body, with no head. Faint apple aroma, heavy sweet taste, but more tastefull than other ciders. Thin bodied, average carbonation, watery texture. In my opinion, a sweet, but a very good cider.

ragebe (5) - Verwood, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013 does not count
Too sweet, doesn’t taste like cider. Cider is made from fermented apple juice, not corn starch and ethanol (despite what the marketing rules may allow)

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Carrefour. BBF 12/06/2014. Clear bottle. Lots of chemical stuff in the ingredient list. Poured into a big glass with ice cubes. Clear sparkling kid lemonade, insta-gone fizzy head. Smells basically like very sweet, white sugar, sweetened apple juice, Appletiser,… Sweet apple juice taste, odd somewhat bitter chemical sweeteners taste in the back, white sugar, more sweeteners, minerals, apple sweeteners, apple-flavoured soda, odd chemical sweetener aftertaste lingers on in the mouth, HFCS,… Cloying, sweeteners sticky body, crazy effervescent carbonation,… Could have been a good semi-aclopop, too bad about the persistent artificial sweeteners taste. Still not bad for an alcoholic white sugar etc. sweet apple juice soft drink. I prefer personally Appletiser.
