No head. Yellow body with carbonation. Thin watery aroma with faint apple notes. Dry apple taste with wooden notes and some sweetness. Faint metal, too, and a slightly mealy feel. Dryish watery apple aftertaste. Not bad, but very light. (0.5pt on keg at Cittie of Yorke.) alari (30) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2007
Many Sam Smiths pubs in London. Apple taste is fairly well balanced, maybe a little sweet, but aftertaste is crisp and dry. An OK cider but the bottled one SS does is better. Maybe slightly over-carbonated. HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007
Draught. At Ye Old Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street, London. Clear bubbly gold, tiny little head. Very tart ripe apple aroma, a hint of vinegar sourness. Very light taste, fresh, crisp apple, not too sweet, a mild tartness and a very quick finish. Light body, slightly acidic, nice sharp carbonation - fairly dry, with no linger or aftertaste. Pretty good refreshing light cider. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2007
A Mes rate:
Tap at some Smiths pub in Soho. Aparently medium dry. Balls it’s sweet if you ask me. Only thing dry about it is the finish. yeah yeah. Ungstrup (38156) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
A pale yellow cider with no head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by apples, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry end. OK cider.

Golden yellow without head. Weak apple aroma. Low carbonated with a mild and quite bitter-sour taste. imdownthepub (15067) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2006
Keg at The Three Goats Head, Oxford. Gold colour, no head. Well, for my 2,500th rating I get a Cider, how fair is that, and not a real cider to boot, but a commercial keg variety. Having said that, it is not the worst I have had, there is some dry fruitiness and a sharp peel edge to it, but then there is the dreaded gas. I should have marked it lower I suppose, but it is a landmark. Say what you will about Sam Smiths brews, which are average to the extreme, but by god they know how to look after our pub heritage. I hadn’t been in this one for a few years, but it is fantastic, Art Deco ceilings, wood and brass all buffed up a real picture. Visit if you can.

Golden coloured and very tangy. Slightly dry nutty flavour finish. GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2005
[bottle from brewery] smells of real apples, a little sweet but it has a light spritzy body which made it a decent thirst quencher. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2005
very nice natural apple flavour, with very nice carbonation, would like to try again as one of the best ciders iv had along with westons.
