fonefan (51144) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2008
Draught @ Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street, London EC4, UK. Clear light yellow orange color with a small, virtually none, off-white head. Aroma is moderate apple. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average to short duration, and a dry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. (271207)

From tap at The 78. Pours clear and pale yellow with no head. Aroma is crisp apple fruity and mild citric. Rather carbonated. Fruity and mild citric. Dry and apple fruity finish. Simple and clean.

Ungstrup (38489) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2010 One of the less unpleasant Sam Smiths efforts at the end of the RB London Christmas pub crawl. There’s even a very slight funky edge to the aroma, but it’s just too sweet to command any respect. Keg at the Brewery Tap - that is, the old Courage Brewery tap, not Sam Smiths brewery tap. (5/3/4/2/8 = 2.2)
RE-RATE. On draught at the Princess Louise, Holborn, August 2009. Sweet & appley aroma. Not too unpleasant. Sweet finish but not too sticky. Seems a little less sickly than previously. (5/3/5/2/9 = 2.4).
Score updated.

fiulijn (21292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Draught at Duke of Argyll, London</i>
Blond color, almost no head. Very little apple character here, some sweetness (pleasant), light acidity, but not much character overall. Too simple.

2.7
harrisoni (19350) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at The Chandos. Pale clear gold lasting white head. Sweetish simple apple flavours. Aroma is not great. Ok but very simple bordering on the industrial

2.5
rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2012
Draught at Princess Louise, London. Clear golden with a very small white head. Fruity apple aroma, yeasty, bready, citrus notes, some vanilla. Apple flavor, sweetish acidic, yeasty notes, pear, vanilla notes. A bit boring.

2.7
Scopey (15757) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Keg at Ye Olde Swiss Cottage. It pours clear golden with with a small fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet, sugary, cheap apple juice, earthy, light barnyard and apple pie. The taste is initially crisp, plenty of sugary sweetness, apple juice from concentrate, appletiser and candy with a touch of dryness through the finish. Light - medium body and fine, effervescent carbonation. A bit sweet and one - dimensional. Fair at best.

imdownthepub (15336) - 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 with no head. Sweet apple juice aroma. Clean and sweet apple flavour. In one word: Boring
