50cl can. Slightly puzzling that I haven’t got around to rating this before - as to me it’s the "standard" against which other mass-market ciders should be judged. A pale straw pour with moderate carbonation; sweet, floral, dessert apple aroma; tart apple taste; and a dry finish. Unsophisticated, but refreshing.

14.9 oz can. Poured a boring clear straw yellow color with a thin white head. Taste of candy apple, floral, and dry. Medium carbonation, thin body.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Draft @ British Beer Company. Clear piss yellow color, no head. Active level of bubbly carbonation. Aroma of smashed green apples, nothing more.

The body is light like every other cider I have ever sampled. Fizzy carbonation with a light tingle. Sweet malt mixed with watery apples. Not the worse mass produced cider out there. It’s drinkable without any major flaws.

@ Sandy Bay, Cyprus. Can (500 ml) from local supermarket (€ 1.50). Sweet, fruity and light acidic with notes of apple. The finish is dry, sweet and fruity.

Not sure how this chemical contraption is called a cider, maybe the delivery lorries have to drive past an apple tree on the way to the shops and pubs? If you lick the striking part of a match box you get the same flavour, which can’t be good. Advertising and marketing has got this cider where it is today, nothing else

hackobock (2298) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear golden with a small quickly dissipating frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and light tart apples, minerals. Taste is medium sweet with a light dry tart apple finish. Light bodied and average carbonation.

Bamsen78 (4529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2014
Can. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear but faint aroma of apple juice with distinct estery notes (why???). Sourish and mildly sweetish flavour of apple juice, otherwise quite watery, despite high carbonation. Sour-sweetish aftertaste. Boring, commercial, non-cider, but drinkable on a hot day.

Derek881 (1175) - Kiev, UKRAINE - JUL 8, 2014
Poured from a regular-sized bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a bubbly appearance with a rich gold color with a slight orangeish hue and almost no foamy white head with no retention, and extremely minimal cling and lacing. The aroma featured fruity notes of pear and apple along with some lighter floral tones and perhaps a touch of straw and malt. The taste was a sweet fruity pear-apple blend which yielded to a slightly bitter fruit effect. It was a very watery beer with a lighter, thinner mouthfeel that had fairly good carbonation and a champagne like effect. Not bad for hot weather.

Slightly below average, but nothing to scoff at. Cant really complain at the low price, but if your looking for something cheap id recommend woodchuck or ciderboys first.
