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.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
2012-11-27. Crisp yellow body, frothy white foam when poured dissipates. Sweet fruity apple aroma, like an apple Jolly Rancher dissolved in apple juice, nots of sweeter apple cider, very muted whispers of skins. 6+ Flavour is similar, quite sweet, quite fruity, strong apple flavour is a mix of apple juice and an artificial apple flavour (as noted on the can after I checked). Very smooth average plus palate is full bodied for a cider, soft carbonation. As a cider its okay at best, as an apple flavoured cocktail it is pretty tasty. I can only imagine the hangover would be massive though given the amount of sugar on the palate. Can from the LCBO, Toronto

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2012
I got paid 20 dollars or some bullshit to attend a focus group for this bullshit product. I’m straight up rating this 12oz bottle in 3 sips, because that’s how it was intended to be drank. Flat apple juice, jolly rancher apple sugar. Seriously, fuck you Sweden, how dare you. Completely for 12 year old girls to drink...and puke from the sugary disgusting artificial plastic nothingness. Really bland, thin, one-d. In no way enticing or worth an investment in.

Metalchopz (2285) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
Single can from the LCBO. Pours a very pale golden colour. The head is decent, kind of foamy and does last longer than most ciders. Beautiful fresh Granny Smith nose with hints of pears. Sweet tasting, but not too much, as in not syrupy, but with green and yellow apples. Just enough stickiness to not put his one watery. Pretty refreshing and tasty.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Nov 18 2012. 500ml can pours very pale straw with no head other than good carbonation. Aroma is just like apple juice. Flavour is not too sweet but no tart or sourness of Granny Smith apples. Just like an apple pop. No sign of alcohol other than slightly in mouthfeel. Very crisp palate. Too easy drinking for me.

northropfrye (2208) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 An alright cider. Sweet and apply, average appearance. Not very complex but there’s some nice flavour there.

Bamsen78 (3140) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2012
Can. Pours pale yellow and very fizzy. Light aroma of synthetic apples. Ditto taste. Not excruciatingly bad, but very far from cider, and not close to decent apples, either.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 10/20
sulawang (621) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2012
pours clear light golden yellow, minimal head, ringed retention, a few slow moving streams. Clean apple juice on the nose. Dense and rich apple juice flavour up front, mellow 6/10-sweetness, gentle effervescence, mild cloying, light tartness, sprite-like lemon/lime, ultra clean finish. Low-medium complexity, medium depth, great transitions, good carry, excellent drinkability.

maneliquor (3109) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Tastes exactly like apple juice. Spot on! Sweet and summery

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
Can, pours a dark blonde, the aroma is fruity and apply. The flavour is really nice, its got lots of apples and it not too sweet. I could drink a bunch of this. Most ciders are too sweet, but this one is nice

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Can: Poured a sparkling super yellow color cider. Aroma and taste are quite sweet with strong bubblyness factor. Not a lot of complexity and quite a lot of residual sugar. Easy drinking cider which doesn’t end up tasting like actual apple.
