Tempt No 2 Apple Cider 
Posted: 6 October 2015  Beer Republic 3.0 
Tempt No 2 Apple Cider from Denmark This is not even a good mainstream cider. The bulk of the apple taste comes from apple wine and there's a residual aftertaste of what seems to be some kind of cheap sweetener.  Tempt yourself with any other brand first.       
Avg price/liter: USD 4,43   ABV %: 4.5  Type: Cider   Denmark 
       


Funny sometimes how companies brand their products, the name winding up to be nothing like the product.      

Tempt is a great brand name.  No room to guess what that name connotes.  Unfortunately, the brand, based on this Apple Cider and the Strawberry-Lime cider I drank before this, is anything but tempting.      

The best thing about these bottles is the labels.  You assume from the beautifully crafted art work and early twentieth century font style that you must be in the presence of something artisanal and handcrafted.       

Think again. The manufacturer behind this turkey, Royal Unibrew, is Denmark's other large brewing operation, after Carlsberg, formed in 2005 after a collection of smaller Danish breweries unified to create some kind of formidable competition against the Carlsberg beer giant pushing all the other brewers around.      

This is not even a good mainstream cider. The bulk of the apple taste comes from apple wine and there's a residual aftertaste of what seems to be some kind of cheap sweetener. When you see the words 'natural flavor' on the label, you know this ain't going to be anything close to an artisanal cider.      

Tempt yourself with any other brand first.
