2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright golden color, moderate carbonation and a light fizzy ring of head in large clinging bubbles. The aroma is lightly sweet & musky with some notes of apples and pear. Taste is initially tart with a light kick of sweet at the tail, not very dry but refreshing. The finish has a little bit too much sulfer left in it but overall I liked this cider, it was right in the middle of artificial super sweet commercial and super dry & tart artisinal ciders. lovely!

Rich gold colour with little carbonation, it's inevitably apple - the aroma, the slightly sweet and tart taste, and the after-taste which is quite clean. The alcohol content is well disguised till 10 minutes after you've drunk it down - bad if you are consuming multiple 0.5L cans

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pale yellow with very little white head. The aroma reminds me a little of champagne. Very tart and lots of apple flavor. Tart taste with a very dry finish.

Tart apple skin aroma. Flavor of golden apples, quite tart, massively dry. Wasn't too bad, went well with my fish & chips.

Straw yellow no head. Aroma of apples with a rum character. Apple juice, rich and buttery. Very still and chalky. Similar to a light chardonnay.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught: clear apple flesh. Light apple skin aroma with some dough and lemons. Good apple flavour that is light enough to enjoy a full pint and tasty enough to keep me interested.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale blond colour, without head. Sweet-sourish aroma. Smells a little bit like lambic or wine. Fruit flavour, also like wine or lambic. Though, it is a quite one-dimensional. The true question is: "Is it rational to call it beer?"

Nothing exceptional here. Fruity with a dry finish...Typical Cider to date though I'm not well versed in the style

I didn't notice a very strong aroma with this. It has a nice crystal clear golden appearance with nice big bubbles that drifted up. It has a very nice crisp clear cider flavor that doesn't seem to linger around too long. Its a nice cider but ware the headache that may follow if you drink too much. It's a kicker!
