downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2009
Bottle from the Bristol Wine Company. Pale yellow with no head but plenty of fizz. Light, dry apple aroma with some yeasty skin. Flavour was sweetish, with some acidity in the background, and a gentle, bitter sweet finish. Drinkable, if with a slightly muted character.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2008
0.5 l bottle at Vihreä Haltiatar, Jyväskylä. Very pale golden color with no head. Acidic apple aroma. Apple skin, wood and cork in the flavor with hints of cherry and cinnamon. Sweetish at first followed by fruity, woody and fairly astringent finish.

Fin (7411) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2007
Bottle from Sainsburys Pale golden colour, aroma initially a bit sacchriny sweet but this may still be my nose being assaulted by the Kopparberg my friend was bravely drinking (I warned them about drinking such a drainpour)There were some juicy apples as well. I really quite like these single varietal ciders from Thatchers and have drinked just about all of them, though may have to revisit them to rate, this one isn’t my favourite though as I find it’s lacking a bit. Refreshing crisp and sharper than I recalled but certainly not in the premier league of ciders.

jimbles85 (10) - ENGLAND - APR 11, 2007
Regularly available in supermarkets both in Cambridgeshire and further afield. Sharp, dry cider of a quality rarely matched in bottled ciders in the UK. An acquired taste, perhaps, but there’s a lot in the finish if you give it a chance

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle. Very pale cider with a fairly acidic nose and a quite weak apple flavour. Overall a very gentle and slightly poor cider.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2006
Bottled. Very pale and a little thin tasting, I like my ciders with the bits left in. Still, although there are better apples to make cider from, this si still a decent enough bottle compared to macro chav swill.

Ungstrup (29291) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2006
A hazy light yellow cider with no head. The aroma is sweet and very apply - the flavor is also very apply and quite dry.
