Drank this one on tap. Nice carbonation, not too sweet. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Very pale yellow, clear cider, and not as thin as you would expect from such a clear cider.

Not a lot under the nose on this one except apple notes and a hint of peach. Taste? It’spretty average but is pretty refreshing. For a medium-dry it has a drier aftertaste and the sweetness kicks in. Sharp’s brewery tend to be famous for their ales so I suppose it’s no surprise that this cider isn’t amazing - thing is, you never know so it was worth giving it a go. Sipped this one at The George, Weymouth Harbour Quayside, in Dorset (UK). It’s golden yellow in colour; very light and medium carbonation. Its body is also medium with a touch of lightness and isn’t very complex at all. Sharp and fairly dry - perhaps that was the brewery’s intention since they are called Sharp’s. It’s pleasant enough for a refreshing hit in the sun and perhaps for those who haven’t really explored other ciders too much and overall it’s a decent entry that will suit most pub visitors looking for a cider that looks different but doesn’t taste remarkable. Refreshing is probably the most positive summary but I personally wouldn’t rush to the bar for another one mainly because of its sweet aftertaste and average quality. 4.5%ABV. 3/5 stars.
