2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Visual: It doesn’t indicate medium dry anywhere on (my bottle at least) the front label but is noted as such on the back. Pours light golden apple juice yellow, clear as water with no head and a super thin ringed retention, lots of slow steady streams.
Nose: oaked woody, tangy apple cider. (9)-pungent nose.
Attack: dense sugars, fizzy
Mid-palate: (MAIN) fruity apple, woodiness (HINT) lemon
Finish: cuts off-dry, medium-high tartness, apple fruit juice exhale.
Summary: Not much complexity of flavour, but does hit deep enough with its woody apple aroma and tart/zingy mouthfeel. Average at best. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)

Bottle. Yellow cider with bubbles rising from centre of glass. Aroma is of pear for some reason. Taste is green apples with a tartness of sour apples mixed in. Some sweetness in there too. OK for price of a £1.

Ok, think this goes here... 500ml can, just says "Stowford Press, Westons Cider" on the can, also states that this is the official cider of England Cricket. Gold and clear with a fast fading white head, leaves a thin ring. Nose is fleshy apple with some tartness. Slight apple flesh flavour, not too sweet thankfully, some apple skins. Dryish end, well carbonated and light bodied. Pretty standard cider, drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Over Farm, Cheltenham. Pours golden ’apple juice’ amber, high carbonation and very sweet, almost artificial tart apples along the lines of Olde English. Surprised to see this produced by Westons as it resembles none of their other ciders.

500 ml can. BB 05/09/2013. (Prisma) Kuopio, Finland.
500 ml was too much for the cooking so I had the responsibility to get rid of the rest. Suits me.
Clear pale golden colour with a small white head.
The aroma is strangely buttery sweet with some apple and vinegar notes. Quite a mild aroma. The flavour is apple, some sweetness, mild caramel and earthy mouldy notes. Drinkable. Slightly watery.
