Apple flavor koolaid and corn syrup fermented in an old oil barrel for an months. Very foul drainpour that should be left on the vendor’s shelf and avoided at all costs. Calling this cider should be a criminal offense.

Aroma is nice and fresh with apples. Taste is light to moderate tartness and average sweetness. Pretty middle of the road, drinkable, not mind-blowing.

This crap is the "new coke" of cider. BRING BACK REAL STRONGBOW, English, dry, and delicious. This Americanized crap is only good for kids who like their cider to taste like syrup.

Too sweet. Tastes like a wine cooler. Ruined what was one of my "go to" cider choices. I’ll switch to Blackthorn instead.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Steraw gold pour with a thin, soapy white head. Aroma of sweet apple juice from concentrate with a little green apple jolly rancher in there. Flavor is basically just sweet apple juice and a little sloppy hot and oily boozy notes. Light body, medium carbonation, a little syrupy and oily. Not entirely offensive, but it has enough off notes and is lacking enough in interesting character to make it a guaranteed never again.

Patrickctenchi (3458) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle: Pours clear gold with a short, white head. Sugar-apple aroma. Sweet, rich apple taste. Nice tasting.......pleasant.

wlajwl (3767) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Aroma is slightly mushy apples and mild/medium sweetness. The flavor is apples/apple juice, mild/medium sweetness, very slight chemical notes and a tart finish.

330ml bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s in iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear golden yellow colour; One-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation; Sweet aroma of apple flesh and juice, with light pear flesh, perfume, sugar, and very light tannic; Mid to light sweet taste of apple wine, with strong tartness, light apple flesh, carbo, tannic, and very light alcohol; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is strongly carboed, with pretty good fleshy light apple, low sweet and light sharp tartness. Tannic is low but give out some nice astringency, rounded up by very low booze. Okay… Quite dry after taste. Fruity and slightly tart to mouth.

Comments: Compare to other dry ciders, this one has good aroma and light in taste, but the low tartness and tannic have characters of their own to make it neat and enjoyable. Not too serious, and not offensive, either. Drinkable.

Medium sweet apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Soft drinkable refreshing beverage.
