2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong sweet baked apple and brown sugar in the aroma. Clear blonde body is quite still and leaves no legs on the glass. Apple juice flavour with some buttery notes, a touch of vanilla and light alcohol. Medium light body with very low carbonation. Sampled at Dix Xmas Extreme in Dec-07.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draught) Sampled at Dix X-mas Xtreme Caskival 2007. Pours mildly cloudy yellow body. Nose of bruised, rotten apples. Sweet flavour with almost a peach powder front mixed with unpasterized apple juice. I don’t know why - but this cider reminds me of the gritty McDonald’s orange drink for its artificial flavour and sweet tartedness. Very poor.

Hazy dull gold colour. Just smells like apple juice. Hmmm....tastes like apple juice, fermented out a bit with baker’s yeast. Yeah, didn’t work for me.
