downender (5907) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Clear, pale gold with moderate carbonation and next to no head. Aroma of sweet apples and a touch of yeast. Flavour was on the sweet side, with plenty of fruit, some wood and a very short, dry finish. Ok.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle. Light golden and bright looking cider. The aroma is sweet and fruity and the flavour is sweet and very appley. Overall a nice refreshingly sweet cider.

Fin (7012) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour, woody slightly musty aroma. Taste is very smooth touch on the sweet side some oakiness, doesn’t have the real appley tang edge to it that others have but very nice and easy drinking.

JonMoore (1804) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2006
Bottle. Quite a pale gold colour. Aroma is apples with perhaps some background oak. Quite sweet for a medium dry, but it gets away with it. The oak is more noticable in the taste. Pleasant cider.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2006
I’m a bit disappointed and pleased with Tesco at the same time. Due to the lack of new beers in their beer range, I have been forced to buy their ciders in order to get a scoop in this shop. However, it has meant that I started to drink cider again. Woody cider aroma with sweetish apple juie in the mouth.Like Chris this is on the sweet side of medium dry. Woodiness develops in the mouth to the finish. Bit of rubber on the aroma. Finish as a drying juicy feel. Drinkable if not stunning.

scotty (1032) - SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Mid-gold colour, steady bead of bubbles. Great appley aroma, with soft oak lurking in the background. Good weighty palate, and surprise, surprise...juicy apple flavours abound. Very nice cider, clean, not overly oaky, and refreshing too! Tesco.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2005
Bottle from Tesco. Pale gold in appearance. Aromas are mild, sweet apple juice with some woodiness. Flavours are sweet apple with farmyard woody dryness. Not overly carbonated. Slightly spicy on the palate at the finish. Pretty decent.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2005
Bottle from Tesco. Pours sparkling, very clear. Aroma is apple, smokey. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity, woody (oak) and a little smoke. Fairly nice if not a little bland.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 This has a totally different appeal to beer,cider has a golden refreshing appearance and you just know that its going to be good on a hot day.This has a nice,light carbonation.There is a sour aroma to it,but the taste is different,although sour it is appley and dry.Sectret high alcohol content makes it easy drinking....I recon Ill be bladdered if I rate any more beers tonight!!
