worldbeertaste (1676) - West Midlands, - NOV 17, 2012
Clear pale to medium gold with a fizzy, white, disappearing head. Smells of apples, light citrus and apple core. Thin light body with soft carbonation. Tastes sweet with a nice overall freshness. It was nice with a meal but overall has little taste and I wouldn’t drink it on its own.

33cl bottle at "all you can eat" Chinese in Shrewsbury. Appearance - golden orange with no head and loads of carbonation. Nose - sweet apples. Taste - fresh but again sweet apples. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - not the sour still style I prefer.
