Pale yellow, very small diminishing white head. Nose is apple peel, some acidity. Taste is more of the same, but with pronounced acidity. Tart finish, thin body, fizzy mouthfeel, not overly carbonated. Decent.

Pale fizzy golden. Nose is applejuice, the taste is more applejuice with pleasantly crisp acidity, no over-the-top sweetness. Refreshing and very drinkable.

440ml can as Marks & Spencer Cider. Clear golden colour, thin white foam head and aroma of musty apple & hints of sulphur. Taste is sweetish sugary apple, watery. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dryish finish. OK.

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.

Bottle from Sylhet, Cambridge. Mid-gold, heavily carbonated. Smell is of apple juice with a slight metallic/bready edge. Pleasant sweet taste, very easy to drink. Slightly over-carbonated. A decent enough commercial cider if you are stuck for anything better.
