2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bought in 500ml bottle as Morrison’s Medium Dry Cider.
Really nothing to distinguish this from many other ciders on the market but at only £1 per bottle it’s not to be sniffed at.
Dry green apples to the fore. Quite fizzy but not overly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask / Bag in a Box @ Euston Cider Tap. Reading the ratings I’m not entirely sure if this is the same cider but this is where ratebeer directed me. So. This has some pretty interesting flavours with a prominent vanilla character and possibly a little caramel from the oak. Dry, yet smooth with possibly a little rum coming through. Again, a very interesting blend and one I wouldn’t mind re-visiting on my return to the Cider Tap.

Bottle, from Morrisons (Morrisons Medium Dry Cider). Yellow gold, thin, fizzy shortlived white head, moderate condition. Slightly woody apple in the nose, some spirity notes. Quite full in the mouth with a gentle sweet apple note and a slight pineapple tang of citrus, short apple sweet finish leaving the mouth with someoiliness

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Easy drinking cider that tastes of green bitter sweet apples but not too tart, very refreshing when chilled and excellent value for a supermarket own brand cider.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 500ml bottle (Hilpea Haukki, Helsinki) (6:3:5:3:10=2.7)
Simple lightly sour and apple aroma. Clear gold, fizzy carbonation. Watery palate. Rather feeble. Nice tartness, but that’s about all. Don’t make cider at 5% please, and if you do, please don’t filter it.
Rerate: Bag-in-box (St George, Staines) as Marcle Hill (6:3:5-:3-:10=2.7--)
Nice sharp fruity aroma. Watery palate, flat. Quite lacking a fruity body, disappointing. Watery finish.
