Apart from the other Strongbow varieties this is the only cider Iíve ever tried - and I like it. It has a nice bitter taste. When I poured it I got absolutely no head and the colour left a lot to be desired. But once it goes into the mouth itís very nice.

TedE (985) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2015
355ml bottle into Bulmers pint glass. Now called Strongbow Classic Apple Cider. Green bottle, skunky nose! In the glass smells like vinegar for a while. Looks like urine, no head, minimal carbonation. Fizzy mouthfeel, sherbet taste. Finish is toffee apple, acid and a hint of cooked vegetables. Mass-produced and horrible.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2012
Draught. Pours a super clear slight golden with no head. Smells sweet, of artificial apple. Tastes of a massive sweetness, slightly watery, very mild carbonation, lots of sugar, artificial apple, some acidity. Its a mildly alcoholic bad over sweetened apple juice.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Bleh, unbelievable sweet stewed apples take over. Not for me but seems to be all over Australia showing that someone must like it

hawthorne00 (3503) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle, as Strongbow Original, 5% ABV. Clear yellow, mousse vanishes like a soft drink. Aroma is vaguely appley. Very sweet, tastes of stewed apples. No tartness. Drank this to confirm my memory of it. Pretty poor, but not really offensive.

ComradeK (1107) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2010
355ml bottle. I didnít see the pour, as I drank from the bottle, but I assume it looks much like Strongbow Dry. Smells and tastes like a typical macro cider - straight up apple and not a lot else. Still, for what it is, it isnít bad.

Bottle @ Bar

Poor form, Strongbow. Pours a flat, pale yellow. Smells strongly of artificial apple sweetness. The flavour is rather vacant, mostly overly acidic apple hints (only hints) with some bitterness thrown into the mix. There are far better ciders so stay away from Strongbow if you can (unless the alternative is Five Seeds).

Jade (433) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2010
Fizzy, champagne colour. Light aroma, hard to place. I expected a strong apple scent, but only mildly at best. Vey empty, weak taste to it. Nothing like some real quality ciders. This is drinkable, but Iím quite dissapointed.
