maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2008
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.

ComradeK (1052) - 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.

AshtonMcCobb (2933) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2011
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 (6337) - 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.

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.

Can, M&S, Waverly Station, Edinburgh
