330ml bottle bought at ParkNShop SuperStore in Fanling.

Clear golden colour; No head with faint residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with occasional small carbonation; Light aroma of apple juice, with light white wine, sugar and light wood; Light sweet taste of light apple wine, with tartness, faint wood, soda, moderate alcohol and notable tannic; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is devoid of real apple taste, just some thin white wine being thrown into a glass of soda with notable scream of light booze and tannic. Quite artificial. Burr!…. Slightly dry after taste. Watery to mouth.

Comments: This one reminds me of the Bulmer’s apple-water disguised as Cider but in this case, is only worse: apple aroma and taste is hardly tracable, and that boozy hint suggests a watered down scrumpy, only it isn’t. Drinkable as water only.

Ik dronk dit uit een glazen flesje van 275ml dat door Aubel ’gebrouwen’ werd voor Hereford. Helder geel met een kleine witte schuimkraag. Zoete aroma van appels in de neus. Zoete smaak van appels in de mond met lichte bitterheid. Korte afdronk.

What can I say, it’s a dry cider. It tastes like a dry cider. It’s ok. Need to hit more characters.......

Just a very simple, sweet cider. Light carbonation. Light everything. It’s alright, not too much more to say about it.

Poured dark golden with a frizzy off white froth. Aroma of sweet apple. Medium body, flavour as the aroma.

Draught @ Hudsons Canadian Tap House. Pours a clear yellow with a small, fizzy, short lived, white head. Sweet aroma of apples. Sweet flavour of apples. Light body with a watery texture and soft to almost flat carbonation. Weak and boring.

Sweeter all around than some, with a pungent bittersweet aroma and flavor. Nothing that makes you say wow, but nothing to tell me why this is ranked so low. "

Pour from bottle, this cider is light gold in color, light bodied and lightly carbonated. Smell floral and taste fruity with very subtle aftertaste. Something quite enjoyable in hot weather.

Un liquide doré qui est dégarnit de mousse. Un nez de pomme et de miel. Son goût est acidulé comme la jeune pomme et en est porté par une texture soyeuse. C’est à peu près ça. Pas de défauts, en fait son seul défaut serait qu’il est sans qualité non plus. Version à 5.3% (M.A. 31.03.15) (1167-030814)
