A clean apple tasting cider with a nice medium dry finish that is fresh and flavoursome. This is as authentic as draft cider can get down here in Oz. I am so happy to have found it in all the rubbish that so called no it all venues pass off as cider. I’m telling everyone where to go.

mcberko (6332) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
On tap at the White Bear Rickmansworth, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma of medium sweet apples. Flavour is medium sweet, with a good crispness to it. Balanced and drinkable, leaving ample sweetness. Decent stuff.

ectuohy27 (583) - ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2014
(As Marks & Spencer Cider) Good but by no means great, though compared to the local Estonian chemical-sugar stuff, this at least is made from real apples. Rather weak aroma and watery flavor leads to a dull, dry finish. Nothing compared to the good stuff from Westons (but perhaps the low abv and literally generic labeling is the cause for this?)

Pint on draught. Golden with a thin fizzy white head which fades to a ring. Aroma of apple and hay with some bubblegum hints. Taste is minerally with apple and cinnamon. Fairly sweet. Light body, medium dry. A bit watery.

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.

Keg in Bentham. Golden with a bit of white froth. Quite dry with apple flavour plus some sweetner. Refreshing and OK, but pretty watery.
