3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pale orange-gold colour. No head and moderate carbonation. Aroma is very tannic and full of apple skins. Flavour has a bit of wildness, but in both appearance and aroma, it would be tough to separate this from Magner’s. Soft apple character with a light sweetness and a touch of herbal character. Quite a nice cider.

Tap - Canal House - Nottingham. I was disappointed to see just two real ales in this pub when I walked in; both of which I’d previously rated and didn’t warrant a rerate. Therefore chose this, expecting to dislike it. I was actually pleasantly suprised thoug. It’s golden in colour and has tons of fizz. The aroma is sweet and very apply. Again lots of apple in the taste with low carbonation and medium sweetness. Quite smooth and inoffensive, and not nasty as predicted. A superior mass produced keg cider.

Can. Rather average apple nose, pale gold color with lace. Bland, medium sweet flavor, apple, some spice. Just a touch of tartness. Drinkable and tasty, though not very interesting. Refreshing, not much else going on.

Keg, The Red Deer, Sheffield, 01/01/13. Pale fizzing green gold without a head. Rubbery somewhat industrial aroma. Better flavour with hints of sauce on gammon, light tannins, sparkling white wine, stomach cramps. Gut-rot: didn’t half finish a half.

500ml can from Tesco. Pours clear yellow, no head. Aromas of sweet eating apples, granny smith’s maybe. Taste is sweet too, metallic notes present. Bit sticky on the finish.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a clear yellow colour witha small, foamy and patchy head. Aroma of sour dry apples with some wood and cardboard notes. Flavour of sour and dry apples, wet wood, barnyard and sugar. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Not bad and very drinkable.
