From bottle to pint glass.

Super aggressive pour, no head, no fizz. Very light carbonation. Itís golden. Looks almost like malt liquor, without the white soapy head.

Aroma is, to me, more pear than apple. I smell no honey. I can smell some sourness to it.

Taste is apple juice, maybe a little more sweet. Thereís a teeny tiny touch of tartness at the very end. I feel some honey coating my mouth on the swallow. I still think thereís some pear in there.

Mouthfeel is semi wet. Soft mouthfeel. Itís sweet, and I would say drinkable. Perhaps too drinkable. No alcohol taste at all. Donít know if I could drink many of these, too sweet. Feels good going down.

Overall, itís okay. Itís an average cider. Everything about it is essentially okay. Nothing worth fussing about, nothing to get distressed about if you canít find it. Make this slightly less sweet, and you might have something. Would I drink this again, without hesitation. Would I buy it again, maybe. I would probably recommend this also. On a shelf of mediocre ciders, this is probably one the better ones. Pick it up if you want, if not....whatever.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with nice bubbles. Aroma is of ripe, sweet apples and some honey. Body is medium, sweet. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long, bitter-sweet. Too sweet for me.

The honey in this drink balances the strong apple taste perfectly. It goes down smooth as can be

Slight honey aroma. Taste is sweet, with honey added fer sure. the honey is not fermented out, lots of unfermented sugars in this one. Slight processed cider feel hiding in the background, but generally its a decent brew. Goes down way too easy, Iím a little worried about what this will do to the lining of my stomach, all that sugar and alky mixed together in large volumes. Yes, not bad. Typical cider sugar pop so common in the US and I guess the UK now too.

Aroma is obviously that of honey, as well as apples and fruit. Pours light gold, rather generic in the taste department. That of sweet apples, medium thickness. Average carbonation. Very abrupt finish, apples and honey all the way through, with not much else.

Light honey. Comes together well. Easy drinking and decent tangy finish. Slightly more interesting than regular strongbow. Golden pour with ok head. Bottle pour.

b3shine (8107) - Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent light and bright golden orange with white lacing. Smells of apples and a bit of honey with some mild tartness. Tastes like it smells with more of a honey presence and a touch of peach syrup as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Drinkable, but sweeter than I prefer.
