DandyWolfFloyd (1268) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2010
When I first started drinking I loved cider, especially Scrumpy Jack. However, I really lost the enthusiasm for these brews. This was a unique item, as it’s hard to come by different Irish brews. It’s mostly the standards, so this was unusual. Here’s the bad news, it didn’t set itself apart from the pack in any way. It’s got that classic tart apple, somewhat vinuous aroma, a slight bit of that yeasty champagne quality. It’s appearance is that clean golden color, with almost no head persay. Not much to look at. It’s taste, nothing unusual, a sour, cider flavour with a bit of acidic sting. The feel is rather normal as well, thin bodied, light on texture, abrupt in finish, and moderately high on carbonation. Nothing special, super forgettable. Snooze-fest.

Pours clear gold copper, white head. Aroma is intense cider apples, raisiny. Taste is not too sweet, mix of intense apple varietal flavors. Light. Better than expected.

macca147 (762) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2017
Bottled. Pours a clearish and thin yellow gold with a white head. Pleasant flavour balance. Thin to medium bodied. High carbonation. Very sweet, but still pleasant. This is ok.

PintjeFritz (427) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2017
Nice bottle. Clear golden, short head, not special, (I have 0.568l bottle with best-before 11.2018 and batch L7143 C 08:28)

1.1
Quick3Beers (1516) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2017
Pours a yellow from a bottle. Aroma is apple juice concentrate and a little yeast. Flavor is syrupy sweet apple juice concentrate, no character of real apple. Not a good cider.

2.6
lokis333 (619) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - OCT 22, 2017
Clear golden colour with white foam that stays for a bit. Aromas of average dry cider, and fermented apples. Palate, light body thin texture, very carbonated leaving somewhat dry-ish finish. Taste, sweet-ish of slightly gone off apples turning brown. Overall, okay, drinkable but not the best.

2.7
Piepenhenrich (1291) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2017
From tap in Spean Bridge, Scotland. Pours orange-golden, no head. Pleasant taste of apple (obviously), light sourness is balanced by a distinct sweetness. For some, it will be too sweet.

2.8
ljthiessen (1513) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 26, 2017
Aroma is pretty plain, apple juice, some odd chemical notes as it warms. Taste is fairly sweet up front, pretty simple, not bad but fairly boring. A bit sugary.

Koelschtrinker (22090) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 16, 2017
Frischer, weich fruchtig apfeliger Beginn. Gelungene süß-säuerliche Balance, süffig, durch die leicht erhöhte Karbonisierung spritzig. Eher noch trockener werdend, leicht holzig. Gut. 7/9/9/9/8/9
