500ml bottle. F**king awful, inauthentic rubbish. This is the liquid embodiment of the guy at school with loads of money who, in a go-kart competition would get his dad to build the slickest, most impressive looking machine with perfect wheel balance, comfiest seat etc.. and losing miserably against the kid who crafted a go-kart with character through months of hard graft and determination.

Well, I tried this a while back and it was my wife’s favorite or one of her favorite ciders. I thought it was pretty decent from the few sips I had, and I’d have it again. She liked the bottle shape, so there you go...

22 ounce bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a very small white head. Aroma of sweet apples. Taste is sweet apples. Too sweet. Felt like adding some ice cubes.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, clear glass. Nose of sweet apples, very fresh and fragrant, but there’s also a light artificial/sugar note. Pale clear golden pour. Taste lightly sweet (and dry enough for volume, thankfully) with very low bitterness, pleasantly tart but without any fizz to amplify. Moderately soft body (more like flat) and fruity beyond just apples, refreshes. I’m happy enough.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fed up of beer palate needs a re-jigger so here it is.
22 oz attractive bottle design froma local Mom and Pop convienience store.
Its a tiny bit darker goild than most ciders( well industrial ciders)..had a bubbly white head but its gone in 60 secs.
Has a sort of Jolly Rancher apple aroma..when iget the Jolly Rancher smell its bad news!
The Jolly Roger aspect continues in, in the taste..artifically sweetened kids version of what apple should taste like.Not as nasty as some but pretty brutish in its sweetness.
Mouthfeel is OK..until the 3rd sip than its cloying.
Bad cider very bad on par with the Hornsby stuff my wife likes

Pretty smooth not a very hard taste of apples like most ciders. It's refreshing but there is not a lot to this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
So a visit to the Publix mix-and-match section finds me looking for some new ticks to keep my streak going, and this was one of them, along with another not very excitement-inducing cider. This one was funny, it had a light fizz that crackled and spattered, hitting me in the face when i tried to drink it. Copying Eckhardt I even tried to listen to it, and it sounded like swooshy whizz, and I have no idea if that was good or bad. But it popped and crackled in my throat just like pop rocks. Strangest effervescence ever. Otherwise some dull bruised apple nose and flavor, a little juicy, baby juicy. Not very sweet, making it fairly drinkable. Light brownish tea color.

Refrigerated 12 oz. clear bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear golden with small/medium white head which dissipates very quickly. Aroma is nice apple, medium body, very little carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is simple apple. For me, not cloying, not dry, pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Btl pours crystal clear bright golden color. Tight head that fades quickly leaving a ring of bubbles around the edge of glass,no lace. Smells of apples, pears and candy.Taste is of sweet red apples, candy,a little white wine and apple jolly ranchers. Light body, syrupy texture, very lively carbonation and a tart, tingling finish. Not to bad,but a little to sweet for my taste. Almost tastes artificial to me. A mediocre cider, that unfortunately is very boring.
