As far as ciders go I don't think this one is any better or worse than others.

Bamsen78 (2890) - 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 (996) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - 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.

On draught in England, in cans and bottles at various times. Pretty dull cider.

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.

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear golden color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, a hint of skins, a mineral note, thin, not much going on.

Quite a simple classic which doesn´t offer a wide range of aromas but that what you basically need: Citrus, apples and some refreshments. Not rocket science but a drinkable cider.

AshtonMcCobb (2318) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the Toby Carvery. Appearance - pale golden with big carbonation and no head as expected. Nose - fresh apples with maybe some citrus. Taste - apples and fizziness. Palate - light to medium bodied with a zingy texture and a dry finish. Overall - solid but not special.

Draft at a festival. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes sweet, like apple, lightly tart. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light, sweet, musky apple.
