Deep yellow colour with a very thin, very carbonated and zizzy white head. Aroma is light apple, yeast, and some cinnamon and spice. Flavour is slightly tart, slightly sweet apple, with a gentle bitter finish. Palate is dry and light.

Has a typical cider look and a apple smell. Taste is of sweet apples and finishes just the same. Overall this was a pretty good cider, not as good as Woodchucks, but not bad.

Learned how to drink on this stuff during a semester abroad in London; remains a fond memory. Taste is smooth, refreshing - I think it kicks the pants off most US ciders.

(first cider ever) Ummm... ginger ale? Sour apple and alcohol in the nose, no head, bubbly, sweet smelling too. Augh. Tastes like apple juice cut with small amounts of vodka. Not beer, I just don't know what to say.

The only thing the bar I went to had on tap that I haven't sampled yet...so I tried this. I'm not an expert by any means on Apple Ciders, but this was pretty good. No hint of any alcohol, but a clean taste!

What can I say about apple/pear juice with alcohol. Well its fizzy and my girlfriend seems to like it (typical girlie drink). ITS JUST NOT BEER!

Fucking terrible. This smelled like a frat party house basement floor. It didn't taste much better. Sour apple juice, hay, an all around god awful cider. I don't know whats worse, miller lite or this.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2003 This beverage is only consumed by underage kids and fisherman friend of mine. This is the drink of choice for 16 year olds when entering public houses and they cannot see their favourite white cider (eg White Lightning, Diamond White) on tap that they usually drink in the local park on an eve. There are two major reasons for this a) any self respecting boozer will not sell bitch piss (aka alcopops - the no. 1 drink for twats and another underage favourite), and b) they do not like the taste of real lager/beer. This is a strange phenomenon as cider tastes far worse than any beer, including Scally Artois and the full horrendous Sammy Smith's range. My friend drinks it because it reminds him of the taste of unflushed toilet water. The bottom line? Looks like piss, tastes like piss, drunk by shits.

This is a cider and a good one at that. The emphasis is on the rich apple flavour, with little carbonation to fizz it up like most of the available ciders out there. A note of caution: gives rather bad hang overs and doesn't mix well with beer.
