This one caught me off guard on first taste. I don’t typically drink ciders. This one has a wonderful aroma of apples, it is almost completely transparent, it looks crisp and it is crisp. Highly carbonated. It is like drinking a glass of apple champagne. After having this I look forward to trying other ciders. A delightful experience.

Giving this one a chance. Pours almost completely clear. Doesn’t look appealing. Apple aroma with noticeable yeast. Plain apple flavor with a champagne finish.

I not normally a cider drinker, or ’cyder’ for that matter. I use Aspalls vinegar, noticed this on the supermarket shelf, chilled it and hey presto - a very enjoyable glassfull. Loads of fresh zesty apples, no metallic or chemical tastes. Very light mouth feel and over all most refreshing. They sell it in the pub near work and I’m having next time I’m in there. AND its organic - which has to count for something. No? Oh well. sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - MAR 23, 2008
nice looking with chapagne like effervesence. Aroma is slight vin and apple. Smooth with a sharp dry finish of tart apple that lingers. At the warrington.

Bottle from Winking Lizard. This Cider pours a clear pale yellow-gold color with a wispy white head that diminishes quickly. Minimal lacing on the glass. The aroma is vinous with some sour apple. Light, dry body with tart apple flavor along with a touch of oak and sweet spice. The finish is fruity and lingering. Overall it is a fairly straightforward Cider. bhensonb (15208) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Interesting "green" aroma. Very pale gold color. Medium body with fine carbonation. Just a hint of sugar. Very mild, pure fresh apple flavor - neither green nor red. Some skin. Hardly any cooked apple. Clean and crisp. Maybe just a touch of grass. ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Dry ciders are my favorite, so I was excited to try this one. Pours a light straw color with some good carbonation. Has a promising aroma; fermented apples are at the forefront.
A little disappointing on the flavor though. It’s very dry which is nice, but the apple flavor isn’t as pronounced as it could be. Someone below mentioned "tonic water" and I could see where you might think that. A little more aggressiveness with the apple flavor might be nice, but otherwise a very enjoyable cider.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2009 First cider rating. Poured from a bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a head that fizzled out immediately/ Nice rising bubbles. Aroma of, surprisingly, apples. Sharp, sweet and sour taste with apples on the finish. Nice and crisp on the palate. Not too versed in ciders, but this was nice. OldMrCrow (2439) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Bottle; My second cider rating so presumably quite naive.
Pours pale clear yellow with a fluffy white but incredibly short-lived head that disappears in fractions of a second before my eyes. White wine aroma with apple notes; flavor is like a overly-sweet chardonnay, buttery with a hint of wood, acid, and of course apple. Not nearly as dry as I expected, but only very mildly sour and entirely quaffable. Nice light sparkling mouthfeel. Seems to me that enjoyed this more than the medium, which is probably an indicator of poor taste on my part. Ah well....
