As Marks & Spencer Hertfordshire Cider, 440mldaniele (9021) - ITALY - APR 30, 2014
Piss golden, carbonation driven white froth disappears quickly. Pleasant enough light apple juice nose, no chemical bile fermented stench as most of my experience of canned cider equates to. Clean and simple apple fuzz on initial taste, tart enough and a fizzy dryness that reminds me of those chalky kids Vitamin tablets. Disconcertingly sweet. This probably isn’t helped by a thin and dry body with a tart purr on the finish. Linger is softly sweet, kids Apple juice and an old towel patchy dryness. Very clean and simple, all told, here. I prefer smashing some of their more VINTAGE versions and have been known to opt for this in a guest cask dodging Spoons, but this was pleasantly passable if lacking in real quench.

Visual: It doesn’t indicate medium dry anywhere on (my bottle at least) the front label but is noted as such on the back. Pours light golden apple juice yellow, clear as water with no head and a super thin ringed retention, lots of slow steady streams.
Nose: oaked woody, tangy apple cider. (9)-pungent nose.
Attack: dense sugars, fizzy
Mid-palate: (MAIN) fruity apple, woodiness (HINT) lemon
Finish: cuts off-dry, medium-high tartness, apple fruit juice exhale.
Summary: Not much complexity of flavour, but does hit deep enough with its woody apple aroma and tart/zingy mouthfeel. Average at best. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)
