Comes in a 330ml bottle. Single varietal, made from Golden Delicious apples. Yellow, with a green tinge, and has little discernible aroma. Fresh, sharp fruit flavour, with little aftertaste. Crisp, refreshing cider. Good choice for a hot afternoon.

I like this one. Not too much of anything, which makes quite a good quaffing cider.

Well first of all I really love a golden delicious apple. Probably my favourite. This cider is just that - 5 pressed golden delicious apples with no concentrate. And it’s really nice. Ok, it’s not amazing but it’s really refreshing. It’s got hardly anything under the nose and it’s only 4.5%ABV so I was never expecting much. There are some light floral notes though. It’s very light in colour, almost clear but with a light champagne look. It’s sparkly too, it has a really nice fizz to it. This cider is very similar to Kopparberg’s ‘Apple’ effort only not as sweet. Taste? It’s very light with hint of green grape and lightly sour with a soft bite and fairly mellow. Length wise there isn’t much going on but it’s pleasant enough and medium on the tongue. If you like sweet apple juice or Appletiser, you’ll love this. If you’d also like to try another South African cider - and a sweeter version of Savannah Dry, then this is for you. Would go well with cheddar cheese or cheese and onion crisps! 4/5. Refreshing.

Would give 3.5 - tastes like Appletise, which isn’t bad, but doesn’t really taste alcoholic or like cider - probably the result of a single variety of dessert apple. Even so, it makes a nice drink.

I have to admit... it was not my first cider of the night and the pallet was not as clean a canvas as I would have liked.... But... this is not up my street at all. It is too sweet, too flat and too weak. Let's save the planet and keep it in South Africa. Nothing of interest in this cider.

Light lime colour almost like water, clear with a moderate fizz. Aroma is of fresh apple. Crisp, clean and refreshing but won’t last long in the memory.
