Clear yellow with a fizzy quick disappearing head. Smells of sugar and apples, candy, wood and rustic. Medium thin body. Tastes like sweet apples with a dry apple light acid finish. Watery but generally enjoyable.

[On tap at Sweeney & Toddís, Reading] My cider-drinking friends rave about this stuff, so I thought Iíd 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 itís definitely more drinkable than most of its mass-market rivals - itís quite dry, light and refreshing in fact. So, not a total write-off, but still nothing to write home about.

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 isnít 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.

Can, M&S, Waverly Station, Edinburgh
