On tap at the White Bear Rickmansworth, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma of medium sweet apples. Flavour is medium sweet, with a good crispness to it. Balanced and drinkable, leaving ample sweetness. Decent stuff.

(As Marks & Spencer Cider) Good but by no means great, though compared to the local Estonian chemical-sugar stuff, this at least is made from real apples. Rather weak aroma and watery flavor leads to a dull, dry finish. Nothing compared to the good stuff from Westons (but perhaps the low abv and literally generic labeling is the cause for this?)

As Marks & Spencer Hertfordshire Cider, 440ml
Piss golden, carbonation driven white froth disappears quickly. Pleasant enough light apple juice nose, no chemical bile fermented stench as most of my experience of canned cider equates to. Clean and simple apple fuzz on initial taste, tart enough and a fizzy dryness that reminds me of those chalky kids Vitamin tablets. Disconcertingly sweet. This probably isn’t helped by a thin and dry body with a tart purr on the finish. Linger is softly sweet, kids Apple juice and an old towel patchy dryness. Very clean and simple, all told, here. I prefer smashing some of their more VINTAGE versions and have been known to opt for this in a guest cask dodging Spoons, but this was pleasantly passable if lacking in real quench.
