2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
