Pale yellow colour, a lot of carbonation. Very refreshing cider. Fruity aroma with sugar. Bit thin maybe but not that bad.

minutemat (1627) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Can / pint consumed constantly throughout my entire 20s. I shudder to think how much of this stuff has passed my lips. To me, Strongbow is the taste of train journeys to Wolverhampton & Birmingham to see bands; it’s the taste of standing in a muddy field at festivals with a smuggled can in my hand standing in awe at the stage; it’s the taste of late nights watching shitty TV and listening to great music with mates; it’s train journeys of disappointment coming back from away matches; it’s the taste of lying on my back in beer gardens slowly letting the sun & cider send me into a deep sleep. Whether it’s good or not is irrelevant at this point.. like a perfume that suddenly reminds you how it felt to be a teenager. For that reason, despite how hideous it tastes alongside real cider, I’ll always have a soft spot for this stuff.

Cunningham (4492) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2014
Appearance: Clear deep golden color with a small bubbly white head.
Aroma: Mild acidic apple.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet and oily. Average carbonation. A bit dry texture.
Taste: Pleasant mild acidic apple.
Overall impression: One of my favourite ciders. Especially at summer with ice cubes.
Personal stats: Bottle from Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden.

smaynard6000 (634) - Apopka, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a pale amber color with average carbonation. Apple aroma with perhaps a slight touch of cinnamon. Straightforward apple flavor. Light bodied with slightly tart finish. Pretty average, but drinkable.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Far from the best cider but far from the worst. I wouldn’t buy it again but i m not a big cider fan.

mighty_meadow (202) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Mass produced but far from the worst cider on the market. Wet, cold, fizzy and apple(y). A thirst quencher and nothing more.

DCLawyer (1429) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2014
First tasted on draft in England in 1994, thereafter was my go-to cider when available in US, though more from nostalgia than from its quality. Recent retaste confirms this is a below average cider. Pours golden with no head, high carbonation. Sweet apple taste has a definite manufactured tone.

apickles (123) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Hardly any aroma. Very fizzy, clear and crisp looking with a slight head. A refreshing apply taste and fizzy on the palate.
