5.1 oz. "Limited Edition Mini" in a pack of 4 for $1. Does smell a little more like a cider than the "Golden" I had last night. Also there is some honey in the nose. Pale gold color, a bit of fizziness but no head. Taste is a little closer to cider than apple juice, but not by much. Still pretty sweet, and honey taste more like the "natural flavor" on the label than actual honey. A bit more pleasant, but still more of a fortified apple juice.

Pours a very pale clear yellow with zero head......aroma is pear sweetness....taste is very sweet, honey overpowering any apple flavor, apple shows up mid palate and has a jolly rancher kind of over sweetness, and pear keeps showing up. Odd, but.....not terrible.

Pale straw color with a bright white head. Actually smell like a buttery chardonnay. A little deeper sniff reveals the a bit of apple. Very sweet. Apples and light spice. I would have hoped that the honey would have dried this one out a bit. Too sweet and cloying. 1/15

From bottle to pint glass.

Super aggressive pour, no head, no fizz. Very light carbonation. Its golden. Looks almost like malt liquor, without the white soapy head.

Aroma is, to me, more pear than apple. I smell no honey. I can smell some sourness to it.

Taste is apple juice, maybe a little more sweet. Theres a teeny tiny touch of tartness at the very end. I feel some honey coating my mouth on the swallow. I still think theres some pear in there.

Mouthfeel is semi wet. Soft mouthfeel. Its sweet, and I would say drinkable. Perhaps too drinkable. No alcohol taste at all. Dont know if I could drink many of these, too sweet. Feels good going down.

Overall, its okay. Its an average cider. Everything about it is essentially okay. Nothing worth fussing about, nothing to get distressed about if you cant find it. Make this slightly less sweet, and you might have something. Would I drink this again, without hesitation. Would I buy it again, maybe. I would probably recommend this also. On a shelf of mediocre ciders, this is probably one the better ones. Pick it up if you want, if not....whatever.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with nice bubbles. Aroma is of ripe, sweet apples and some honey. Body is medium, sweet. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long, bitter-sweet. Too sweet for me.

The honey in this drink balances the strong apple taste perfectly. It goes down smooth as can be

Slight honey aroma. Taste is sweet, with honey added fer sure. the honey is not fermented out, lots of unfermented sugars in this one. Slight processed cider feel hiding in the background, but generally its a decent brew. Goes down way too easy, Im a little worried about what this will do to the lining of my stomach, all that sugar and alky mixed together in large volumes. Yes, not bad. Typical cider sugar pop so common in the US and I guess the UK now too.

Aroma is obviously that of honey, as well as apples and fruit. Pours light gold, rather generic in the taste department. That of sweet apples, medium thickness. Average carbonation. Very abrupt finish, apples and honey all the way through, with not much else.

Light honey. Comes together well. Easy drinking and decent tangy finish. Slightly more interesting than regular strongbow. Golden pour with ok head. Bottle pour.
