COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and Keg. May also appear as Westons Premium Irish Style Cider, or as Westons Cider Ice when served through a special pump which dispenses a mixture of cider and frozen cider ice. Not to be confused with Westons Premium Organic Cider.
A contemporary cider with the classic pedigree of a traditional cider maker. Rich amber coloured with a ripe apple aroma and a medium dry taste. Matured in old oak vats to produce a quality cider with a refreshing, crisp apple flavour. Highly carbonated for maximum thirst quenching; deliciously refreshing served over ice.

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. Iím guessing this isnís so much about the cider any more, itís about the profit. Finish is not worth describing. Sorry, but westons have lost the plot.

Lowenbrau (1898) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 31, 2013
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.

KyotoLefty (6299) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2012
330 ml bottle. Clear, pale gold, low bubbly head. Faint apple nose, some skin, fresh fruit, a touch funky and perfumey. Rather tangy apple flavor, light tannins, sweetness comes out more in the middle palate. Also somewhat perfumey in flavor, in a fake way. A touch gassy. Basically like an industrial cider. Drinkable but nothing interesting.
