Poured from bottle a light copper. Aroma of apples, honey. Taste was apples, and a little winey. Semi sweet on the draw for me but semi dry in the finish. Kinda industrial for me.

Nice orangey-pink colour, but not dry enough for my taste. I don't know much about ciders, and this one ain't gonna convert me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

*Bottle in Ireland as Bulmers Original. Smooth and fresh apples. Round and tasty with not too much depth, fruity with nice slightly sourish apples. Sessionable cider.

June 2016 - Bottle shared in Watford as ’Magners Irish Cider’, 4.5%, made in Tipperary. Thanks to Leighton for bringing this 5 year old 2011 bottle. It’s been a long time since I last Magnersed. Clear orange, lightly sparkling, bubbly off-white head. Aroma is syrupy, apple, honey-ish, elderflower. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is tonic water, light apple, elderflower, flavoured sparkling water. Drinkable but not great. Quite impressed with how it held up. (2.6)

Clear golden colour with no head. A very basic and sweet cider. The type that leaves a stale taste in the mouth.

As far as everyday ciders go this is OK. Taste is fairly sweet, but medium overall. Some sharp and sweet apple flavours as well as some grape, floral and honey flavours that are almost champagne like. It’s too fizzy, but easy to drink. This cider sells millions every year, but it’s been surpassed.

Certainly not as good as a proper bulmers in Ireland. It's a bit lighter and less flavorful, but still fairly similar. Gently sweet, very light peachy-orange color, and nice to drink on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared in Watford - bought on sale at some Tesco. Vintage 2011. Pours clear, deep orange with a reddish tint and a frothy film. Decent aroma, actually, with semi-ripe apples, some apple sauce. Medium sweet flavour with flinty notes, a slight artificial tang, juicy apples. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Not nearly as bad as I had feared.
