worldbeertaste (1755) - 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.

Clear golden-orange colour with a small white fading head. Aromas of sweet ripe apple develops mainly. Rather lively, bit slick texture and light-medium bodied. Clogging sweetness of candy-apple predominates. Medium finish.

Cunningham (5828) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2015
Golden color with a small bubbly head. Mild acidic apple aroma. Medium body. Tad sweet and moderate acidic. Average carbonation. Nice fine apple flavor. Ok and easy drinkable cider. Maybe a bit to much on the sweet side. But overall ok 4% cider.
