Itís ok, there is some marketing nonsense about hand picked that you could buy into, but what you get is a low end not so sweet and not dry cider that tastes and smells for the most part like an Apple Cider. Inoffensive, not challenging and not setting any benchmarks, you could do worse.

Sampled at Cuginos after 3 of their Narrow Gauge beers. Very clear golden with no foam. Apples are sweeter than expected but have a bit of a tart bite. Nice maltiness. I like this more than expected. Not an expert on ciders, but this is pretty good stuff. The apples stand out nicely. Yellow? A pleasant surprise.

Enjoyable and certainly aiming for crowd pleaser. Apple come across fairly fresh, and very middle-ground between sweetness and tartness. Very drinkable although not super refreshing due to it not being overly tart.

AleRider78 (682) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2016 Pours a fairly big foamy bubbly white head and has a clear light amber appearance. No lacing. Aromas of apple, even pears. Flavours are fruity, mostly acidic. Almost like apple juice. Average retention and carbonation. Sweet and very faint sour mouthfeel. Not bad.

Pours a rich golden colour with big bubble carbonation, but a nice white head that stays longer than any other cider I have had, even leaving some lacing. Apple juice aromas with something else which seems like alcohol, but so low, canít be. Probably the citric or malic acids listed in the ingredients on the can (after cider, water, sugar). The taste is sweet as apple juice, but has some sourness to it, which is quite fine. Adds to the crisp, slightly dry finish. I donít mind this "cidre" at all.

Cunningham (7051) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2016
Golden color with a bubbly head. Typical apple nose. Medium body. A bit dry and lots of apple flavor. Tad sweet and a moderate acidity. Ok refreshing cider.
[Bottle from Savanna at Liverpool Street Station in London, England]

Apple, champagne-like. Aroma has hints of fruit, a touch of floral. Head is rather healthy for a cider, so it drowns the aroma a touch. Appearance is a dark amber/gold, with the aforementioned head. Heavy on the palate, almost syrupy. Rather sweet, with a tangy bite to it.

568ml bottle bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Golden orange colour; Half finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Poor sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation; Aroma of light apple wine, strong green apple, apple juice concentrate, syrup, yoghurt tartness and tannic; Medium sweet taste of fair apple wine and juice, with fairly strong yoghurt tartness, light sugar, faint wood, strong carbo and quite strong tannic; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is light apple wine in a thin and watery background. Only little juice and bit more dry wineyness and yoghutry tartness with further sips. Sweetness is moderate, some faint woodiness with very notable tannin finish. Okay!... Fairly dry after taste. Quite sweet and tart to mouth.

Comments: Itís Stella, but itís more than macro cider I thought, with fairly good dryness and some light wineyness, light but touches of tartness, sweetness and astringency. Only the syrupy aroma hold its back, otherwise this is easy to down and worth sharing it with friends after meals.
