Deep yellow color, no head. Sweet apple taste, slightly dry finish. Good summer cider, if not the cream of the crop.

ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2011
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.

Tasted from a tap at a stand at the Shrewsbury Flower Show. The appearance is amber, fizzy and generally cider-like, there is a sweet apple aroma coming from the nose and the taste has a deeper more intense stewed apples. The palate is good, as with many ciders, there is depth of flavour, this carries through the middle section and there is a clean zingy finish. Overall, this is a decent cider. The difficulty I have is differentiating in the appearance of ciders which are generally not as pleasing as a beer with a nice head and the palate which is generally good with ciders, as discussed above.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2012
[5/14/12] Draught at Charlie’s Bar in Copenhagen. As "Westons Premium Medium Dry". 4.5%. I hope it’s the right entry. Clear golden. Sweetish flavor with green apples, a hint of oak and a decent dry fruity finish. Pretty quaffable.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2002
I had the Stowford Press ’draught’--some suggestion that this is really just a keg, not a proper draught. The cider is clear and relatively low in carbonation (esp. compared to a Woodpeckers or similar). Tart and mildly sweet, with a finish that hints at a bit of bitterness. A bit limp, in my opinion. (Had at Victoria Arms, Oxford).

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2007
On tap at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Fizzy and golden with a pleasing musty aroma. Taste is agreeably but not overwhelmingly sour. Some sweetness, however I would have preferred a drier finish.

Tap at Blackwater Irish Pub, Winterberg. Together with Caesar. Aroma of overripe apples. Clear, dark yellow coloured with no head. Taste is sweet and very fruity (overripe apples) Quite dry finish. Nice.
