3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the better exported ciders, the Weston’s Premium is balanced without losing its sweetness, a touch of oak? aging, but good fruity tartness as well. Fizzy indeed, thin head, but dark and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of many accessible, but unrated Weston ciders, now on tap at Christian Firtal on a warm evening that called for a refreshing pint of cider. Golden with a tiny white head. Fresh apple aroma with a hint of wood. Sweetish red apple flavour that could have used justa little bit of tartness for balance. Uncomplicated and refreshing

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap (Sivu Kirjasto, Helsinki)
Clean, but a bit feeble, apple juice aroma. Pretty watery palate, fizzy too. Why do they waste water diluting ciders to this strength. Oh yeah, for the mass market. Well fuck the mass market, and fuck westons for pandering to them. Feeble apple juice taste. Actually, fuck westons for having so many dodgy aliases. I’m guessing this isn’s so much about the cider any more, it’s about the profit. Finish is not worth describing. Sorry, but westons have lost the plot.

330ml bottle. Sweet apple aromas, with subtle tart ones. Pours golden, clear, with vanishing white head. Hig carbonation, crispy, some tart, but more into the sweet side. Enjoyable.
