3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold. The aroma is very fruit-driven, with lots of sweet apple and not a whole lot else. There is a bit of tartness to start, but it soon blends into a sweet fruity finish. The palate is neither too dry nor too cloying. Not the world’s most interesting cider, by a long shot, but it has a reasonable sweet-dry balance, and would be a passable easy drinker, if it wasn’t so hard to find.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft - Pours pale gold and smells of green apples. It’s bubbly and sweet. It’s light, refreshing, and pretty much the average cider one might expect.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lively pale gold body, medium bead, not head. Good clarity.
Minimal aroma; apple skin, caster sugar, bit of farty S02.
Quite thin body, moderately high carbonation, subdued acid, short palate.
Flavour similiar to the nose, not a great deal happening. Light apple flavours, some sweetness, almost seems a bit artificial. Clean finish, refreshingly dry.
Very drinkable, non-offensive cider. If you’re looking for flavour and texture, look elsewhere.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
[On tap at Sweeney & Todd’s, Reading] My cider-drinking friends rave about this stuff, so I thought I’d give it a go. It pours pale gold and fizzy, with a small rapidly dissipating white head. Fortunately the fizz is less aggressive on the mouth than the eye. Taste is rather sour/vinegary, with some slight metallic notes, but it’s definitely more drinkable than most of its mass-market rivals - it’s quite dry, light and refreshing in fact. So, not a total write-off, but still nothing to write home about.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Lady Luck, Canterbury. Clear, effervescent orange colour with the faintest touch of a head with no longevity. Acidic apple nose. Sweet apple flavours with a dry, sweetish finish.
