mcberko (13894) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2016
On tap at Rocks Brewing, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out green apples and medium sweetness. Flavour brings out crisp green apples, and an almost dry hopping quality. Complex and well-balanced. Very good.

TedE (930) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2016
330ml bottle into glass. Sharp vinegar nose calms down to tart apple. Pale yellow/green with medium carbonation. Flat mouthfeel, slightly tart dry finish, a bit of umami. Fairly routine and a bit boring.

danlo (2474) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s, Hurstville . Pale yellow colour, short-lived white foam head and sweet apple aroma. Taste is apple, sweet, tangy, hint of sulphur. Light bodied, medium carbonation, dry lightly tannic finish. OK.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 21, 2014
on tap at the union on south king street. pale golden with a faint haze, sprity; frothy apple scent; lightly vinegarised tang but with some grapey apple flavours rounding it out nicely

Pyobon (1269) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2014
(Bottle) Clear straw, no head. Subtle aroma, mainly funky with some tangy fruit and spice hints. Light body with lovely smooth and bright carbonation. Nice fresh and apples taste with some spicy hints. Nicely but gently tart with some sweetness. Nice easy drinking cider.

gnoff (9543) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Draught in the smaller sized glass/middy, at The Local Taphouse, Sydney, on July 10, 2013.
Clear honey color, some very small bubbles, but no head really. Apple, dry, slight bit tart, a tiny bit vinous taste. Medium mouthfeel, low to very low bitterness, tart aftertaste. Sweet, apple scent.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2013
Draught. Pours a clear pale straw yellow. The aroma is mainly sweet apple, with not a lot of complexity to it. Sweet table apple is the main flavour up front, but the finish is actually quite vinegary. The vinegary finish does it no favours, but even without that this is a fairly boring commercial cider. Worth missing.

barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2012
Not amazing. Aroma is sweet apple. Appearance is clear straw coloured, has been filtered to death. Taste is sugary apple flavours but close to water. Palate is next to nothing, quite neutral. Overall, not amazing, but not half bad.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2012
Like below, really enjoyed this one. Very sessionable with plenty going on. Not overly sweet but what sweetness is there is pleasing. A dry, crisp and very clean finish leaves you wanting more. Tasty stuff
