One of the adages from the "Eat This Not That!" folks is that if a packaged food has ingredients you can buy yourself, you should eat it. So what about a "hard cider" with ingredients including "Glucose Syrup" and "Fructose/Glucose Syrup." It comes to not much of a much.Smell is mere alcohol and a faint whiff of apple juice. Artificially colored as well. Taste is just fizz. No real apple character or tartness. Just comes across like an unflavored wine cooler. Gloppy backing of processed sugars. Not even willing to cook with this.

Poured from an 11.2 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark golden color with a medium amount of carbonation. The taste is tart apple and very appealing.

Tap at a Restaurant in Tübingen. Nose is uninteresting, faint Apples. Palate is watery, fresh Apples. Decent, but bland which makes it easily Drinkable.

May 2016 - Can, bottle and keg on various occasions many moons ago. I quickly moved on to other beverages that were less sweet and fizzy, and made me feel less sick after a pint. It’s been a while since I’ve had the ’pleasure’, so I had a pour from a friend’s can at a party to remember the feeling. Unsurprisingly, it’s the same as it ever was. Prickly carbonation and sweet syrup. Very much a vehicle for transporting alcohol into the blood stream rather than something to be enjoyed. But you knew that. (1.8)

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 Apple aroma. Medium acid. Medium tannins. Crisp dry cider. Not too acidic. Refreshing in the modern world of candy sweet ciders. I’ve been drinking it regularly for 20 years. It does contain sulphites.

Pours a clear yellow golden color without much head at all. Light sweetness on the nose with some light crisp apple-like notes; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes very dry.

(can) clear pale golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of apple juice and melted wax, with a hint of paint thinner, some banana skins and earth. flavour is mostly powdered sugar and apple juice, rather flat, with some light notes of funk and a touch of caramel. light- to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation.
