1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle. Pours a ridiculously pale clear yellow, with, of course, no head. The prevalent aroma is, bizarrely enough, washing powder. Weird, but there you go. It tastes of artificial lemon to begin, with some very sweet apple coming in afterwards, and a slightly too alcoholic finish. The palate falls into the sweet and cloying trap. A poor, paint by numbers, cider. Not worth trying.

A premium cider this is not. Pours a highly effervescent clear straw colour, no head. Nose is muted sweet apples. The strong carbonation masks most of the flavour, what is left is acidic and sweet. No noticeable aftertaste.
Nothing impressive here but considering the horrifying other products from the same brewer/brand this mediocre cider is actually rather remarkable.
