First tasted on draft in England in 1994, thereafter was my go-to cider when available in US, though more from nostalgia than from its quality. Recent retaste confirms this is a below average cider. Pours golden with no head, high carbonation. Sweet apple taste has a definite manufactured tone.

Hardly any aroma. Very fizzy, clear and crisp looking with a slight head. A refreshing apply taste and fizzy on the palate.

I had this over a decade ago, first on tap with a slice of apple in Brighton(my first draft cider) which was a really deep gold pour with a bitting apple flavor. I then had it in cans while in the UK which wasn’t quite as nice. I think on draft it’s a 3 but in cans a 2.5 this rating’s for the draft version.

440ml can. Golden colour, thin white head and aroma of fruity apple juice. Taste is tangy apple, sugary sweet, abit watery. Light bodied, highly carbonated, some residual sweetness in the finish. OK.

Poured a golden, clear, bubbly color with out a head at all. Aroma was crisp, green apples with some light sweetness. Flavor was light apple, but a bit sweet - a bit more dry would be best.

Well this drink was appealing to my girl. I thought that it was a little bit on the plane side ... I think I tasted better Ciders back in my day, so I’m have to go to an average rating on this particular drink

We did a blind taste test with this cider and 4 other ciders to objectively determine which one is best. The other ciders were: Woodchuck, Angry Orchard, ACE, Hornsby’s, and Strongbow. You can check it out here: http://youtu.be/Dk02pKd09Q8

Dry, tasty. I like this drink. Had to special order it for years before it got to the states.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear pale yellow, no head. Taste dry, apple, sweet. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
