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.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2013
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

Clear yellow to pale golden color, small white head. Acidic, apple, white wine, vinous, sulphuric scent. Apple, a bit vinous, sweet taste. Medium mouthfeel, no bitterness. Medium sweet apple aftertaste.

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 3, 2013
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.

Lowenbrau (1946) - 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.
