This is travesty on the original Bulmer’s Strongbow cider! Gold Apple indeed. Please give us back the original dry cider, not this sweet, overflavored,Jelly Belly tasting sludge. I understand the need to mollify modern tastes, but why take away the original dry?? When I have recently recommended Strongbow to friends, they give me an odd look, and after tasting the Gold Apple, which is about tbe only thing available to us in the US at tjos point, I know why, and WILL NOT continue to recommend it, at all, until the original is once again available.

A good everyday cider. Well balanced apple flavor and not as sweet as others.

Golden, minimal white head. Weak smell of apples obviously. Taste is dry, not too sweet.

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.......
