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.

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)

Frisk duft av eple. Lys klar gyllen farge. Lite skum. God sprudlende fruktig smak av eple. Noe søt.

77ships (4211) - 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.

Can. Clear yellow colour. Aroma sweet red apples. Taste quite well balanced sweet and sour, though a bit artificially sugary. Good simple commercial thirst quencher.

ciders arent supposed to have an ingredients list like that, but this is still a nice tasting refreshing cider thats better tasting than a lot of other stuff.

Plus chimique qu’autre chose, ça se dit cidre mais ça n’en est pas. Plutôt du jus de pommes avec du gaz carbonique et un peu d’alcool...

Tried this after reading about some ciders in local paper writeup and figured I need to reintroduce myself to ciders after a hiatus. Well after sampling several came to this. This is for the most part too sweet, no balance of dry, I have had better ciders.

Tastes just like a soft drink and doesn’t feel like a beer at all. Other than that it’s quite drinkable although a bit sweet. Overall not that bad.

330ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Pretty pale. Fizzy, no head. Thin apple-like aroma, some apple sauce, and pork, but that could be because I had to stretch my synapses so much to reach the apple. Thin fizzy palate. Totally sugary taste, just a hint of apple. An insult to cider. Fuck you Aldaris (looks like a .lv barcode). Shockingly drinkable, given how crap it is. Not a DP.
