Bottle, apple gold, no head and minimal condition. Gentle shitty apple in the nose, low smokey apple skin in the mouth with a background sweetness providing some balance and a gentle smokey fruitiness in the finish

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap - Canal House - Nottingham. I was disappointed to see just two real ales in this pub when I walked in; both of which I’d previously rated and didn’t warrant a rerate. Therefore chose this, expecting to dislike it. I was actually pleasantly suprised thoug. It’s golden in colour and has tons of fizz. The aroma is sweet and very apply. Again lots of apple in the taste with low carbonation and medium sweetness. Quite smooth and inoffensive, and not nasty as predicted. A superior mass produced keg cider.

Light golden colour with almost no head. Apple fruity aroma. Flavor is almost only apple fruity, but with a bit more sweetness than the aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Cross Keys in Molesworth, UK: This was labelled as Stowford Press Traditional Draft Cider so I’m unsure if it is the dry or medium dry. Poured light yellow with a medium sized, quickly disappearing white head. Very mild apple aroma. Flavor is mild apple with a slight sweetness up front followed by a slight sourness in the finish. Kind of watery in my opinion but decent.

Tap. Pale orange-gold colour. No head and moderate carbonation. Aroma is very tannic and full of apple skins. Flavour has a bit of wildness, but in both appearance and aroma, it would be tough to separate this from Magner’s. Soft apple character with a light sweetness and a touch of herbal character. Quite a nice cider.

Tap at Blackwater Irish Pub, Winterberg. Think it is this version. Clear golden color, no head. Smells and tastes like apple juice, nothing more, bit sharper maybe. Bit dry palate.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear golden, no head. Soapy red apple aroma. Sweet and fairly light bodied with a somewhat plastic and artiifical flavour of mashed red apples. Some citric acidity freshens, but overall too sweet and simplistic for my liking.
