Een prima cider, met een droge en zuur-zoete smaak. De appel komt goed door. Deze cider is niet te sterk gezoet in vergelijking met vele andere.

Lamfrenze (9) - HONG KONG - JUL 19, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Purchased it in a can of 330ml from a convenient store in Hong Kong. With a comfortable aroma of apple juice. Clear golden with lots of bubbles. A mixture of sweet and sour taste (more like the taste of green apple). Feel warm in stomach after drinking it.

77ships (7440) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2016
330 ml. clear bottle sampled as “Strongbow Gold Apple” @ home. Ingredients (loose personal translation): Cider (90 %), glucose-fructose syrup, colouring: caramel, food grade acid: apple acid, carbon dioxide, antioxidant: calcium metabisulfite, natural aroma. Yikes is all I can say. Clear golden, lines of bubbles rising, head fizzes away instantly like a soda. Nose is intense chemical sweetness, artificial sweetness & gummy bears in a bad way, plastic chemical apples, faint sugary cabbage. Intense vaguely urinal sweetness, extreme sweet syrup, plastic honey, unpleasant low washing powder chemical, excessively sweet lemonade. Sweet sugar, oily, sweet industrial honey. Bit like a bad lemonade, not the worst but not really good either.

15cl can at home (12 VII 2016), as "Strongbow apple ciders. Gold apple" (4.5% ABV). Swiftly diminishing white foam topping a yellow, golden and subtly hazy. The flavours have dust, cellar, jonagold and granny smith apple. The taste is likewise, and very sweet. This is less of a cider, then it is a fermented soda apple drink. The Strongbow Gold Apple edition has a soft carbonation, a subtle sourness, a heavy sweetness. A smooth drinker, but not a real "natural" cider.

Gold pour with minimal head. Nose is apple, mild earthy tartness. Tastes of apple, honey, smooth.

bobroman (823) - Torun, POLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Tasted on 22.05.16. Gift from HRP Pamela. Aroma of apple juice and sparkling wine. Small, completely disappearing head. Clear light golden colour. Sweet taste of apple juice with minimal sourness. Easy drinking but too sweet to be truly refreshing.

Avetixz (91) - GERMANY - MAY 6, 2016
Aroma of apple juice, fresh apple slices. Pours clear golden liquid with lots of bubbles. Very sweet taste, although a pretty genuine "apple sweetness" and no artificial candy-like taste. Dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Overall this tastes very pure and genuine and I can appreciate the simplicity of that.

Enteogenisk (128) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 (33 cl bottle in rocks-glas.) Looks about as refreshing as it tastes. Not a very experienced cider drinker but I enjoy this on in its simplicity. Perhaps a bit too sweet.
