Co-op Apple Cider
ABV – 4.5%
Size – 568ml
Country - Ireland
Region – N/A
Nose/Aroma – It has a very faint apple aroma but it is a fleeting smell that leaves as quick as it arrives.
Appearance – The cider is a yellowy gold but it is fairly clear in appearance. It has very minor carbonation that dissapears after a short while.
Flavour – The flavour is not very complex at all. It has a small hint of apple but that is where it stops. I did find it to be quite watery which means it didn't last very long and had a minimal aftertaste.
Overall Thoughts – With water being the main ingredient and it being made with concentrate it is lacking in flavour and complexity. However it is still fairly refreshing and very easy to drink. This would definitely not be my go to cider but I would happily drink this again.
Rating - 4.5/10
