Stuedmaster's rating

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20

Sorry folks, this is really bad stuff. Aroma is fair, and appearance is fine, but it goes downhill from there. It has a burned rubber taste and is seems like there was no quality control whatsoever. After awhile you get used to it and I imagine if you are drunk enough you dont care, but initially it strikes you as an industrial produced cider without much care given to the end product. I can understand why it is cheaper than other ciders on the market, but the reduced price does not justify the inferior product. Steer clear of this one, folks.

To start with, bought twice over the span of a few weeks from different locations to make sure it was not a fluke. Got a consistent product both times. Aroma - Not pleasant, mostly has an astringent, rubbing alcohol sort of smell with a bit of a fruity undertone underneath of it. Not a drink I enjoyed the smell of for its own sake. Appearance - Easily the best quality of the cider. Beautifully clear, the carbonation produces a very small head that quickly fades, pours very nicely. If youre looking for a pretty liquid to put inside of a container, this does a fairly good job. Taste - Definitely a sweet cider, when you first taste a sip, you get a nice little burst of sweetness and while the liquid stays in your mouth, you can appreciate the nice apple flavor. The second you swallow though, it abruptly vanishes and youre left with a truly appalling aftertaste and smell that invades your mouth and sinuses. While I understand the cider is fermented fruit, this is a distinctly rotten taste that I havent encountered in other ciders. And it lingers...for a long time. Palate - Light body, very thin texture, and a nice carbonation. It tends to coat your mouth and cling, part of the problem with the poor taste review above. Overall - Cant say I would recommend this one, for much the same reason the other people would recommend it. That after taste is absolutely brutal. If you dont mind it or even enjoy it, this is probably pretty good. But for those who arent fans (like myself), it completely kills the enjoyment of what could have been an ok budget cider.

568ml brown bottle. Pale gold, does this have a pinkish tint to it, or... IDK. White head dies fast and leaves a tiny ring. The nose has sweet apple. Sweet taste, apple flesh, sugars. Lots of carbonation. Finishes semi dry. Really not that good... Wont buy this again. Happy St. Patricks day.

Color dorado, translcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor que se disipa en cuestin de segundos (chispea ms que una Coca-Cola mientras se disipa). Carbonatacin media tirando a mnima. Textura acuosa. Aroma a manzana, manzana asada. Sabor similar, completamente dulce, sin balance entre dulzor y acidez. En boca queda poco despus de tragarla. Rica pero para tomar muy fra y no dar demasiados tragos, ya que satura fcilmente por su increble falta de riesgo. Solo en verano y en compaa.

Pours with typical cider foam. Aroma has ripe apple, caramel, coconut, some perfume. Color is nice clear orange. Palate is okay, but nothing special. Taste starts with orange and develops to sweet apple. Theres also some mango and red berries.This is not a very dry cider, but more to the sweet. The score for this cider is understated, because Bulmers/Magners is still one of the best made commercially available ciders. That is, its a quality cider.

Bier geprobeerd met LiekevdV bij het proeflokaal de Boom. Het heeft totaal geen schuim, ruikt naar appelsap maat smaakt wel ok.

I love a few cans of colonels. Orange in colour, sweet and refreshing on a summers day.

Can on flight Tenerife-Amsterdam. Poors clear and pale EasyJet orange with short lasting white head. Sweet apples, light lemonade syrup, light wood. Over medium sweet. About medium body, soft sparkling carbonation. Nutty dry and sweet aftertaste.
