Friels Pure Apple Cider is noticeable for two reasons. Firstly, it is very, very pale in colour, and secondly because it has a scantily clad young lady on the label. Its notice ability stops there. It pours very straw yellow, with the aroma of light summer apples and citrus flowers. It maintains a steady flow of fine bubbles. The coldness of the initial taste gives tastes of yellow apple skins and apple blossom, almost no real body, but then a sharp citrus taste hits which makes it a bitter finish.
It tastes like an Asti Spumante, when you were expecting champagne. It has no body, much more citrus sharpness than apple taste, and no lingering aftertaste. Its taste is confused, more like a sparkling wine with a dash of lemon than a recognisable cider.
The Friels Pure Apple Cider bottle is clear, which is unusual for a cider, and has a hidden message on the back of the label if you want to read it. Sadly, that’s about as exciting as this cider gets.
