COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes we fancy something a little different. Thatís why we made Magners Golden Draught, it gives people something with a really crisp taste by using a higher proportion of the smaller, harder to crush Dabinett and Michelin apples."

Keg at OíNeills, Reading. Because it was the only thing I hadnít tried before. Looks thin, gold and fizzy, and tastes that way too. Tastes artificial through and through- the sickly sweetness is that of artificial sweetener and applep- flavoured sweets. One feels that there may be a brief squirt of economy apple juice in there purely to avoid lawsuits, but that may be the only apple itís seen. Iíll say this for macro lagers, they may taste bad but at least they donít taste strongly. This macro cider tastes quite strongly of bad- itís possibly the worst cider Iíve ever had. Wish Iíd stuck to the Guinness.

Not bad. I'm not a cider person but it seems very popular in the UK right now. Had at the Blue Posts in London.

Amber color with little head. Dry, perhaps thin at the end. Barely tart at all. Refreshing, but missing punch.
