1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Good gold colour, large bubbles which die away quickly. Odd aroma, cant quite place it but its not apples! Slightly sweet with an acidic streak, not particularly appley, finish is reasonable. Overall, a commercial style, lacks character. From Tesco, £1.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a plastic bottle at the Emirates Stadium.
The aroma and flavour don’t differ that much from the Scandinavian version but I guess it’s different. Musty apple, mild dryness and some sweetness. Drinkable.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
50cl bottle. Looks like a cheap cartonned apple juice, smells like a cheap cartonned apple juice; dry chemical taste with some underlying apple, but also a handful of chalk. Not good - I guess all the money went on the (rather good) TV ads, not on the product.
