Quite a simple classic which doesn´t offer a wide range of aromas but that what you basically need: Citrus, apples and some refreshments. Not rocket science but a drinkable cider.

Decided to revisit this for the first time since I was about 16 - can - pours straw with a white head. Aroma of apple peel and plastic. Taste is super sweet artificial apple, sourness, watery. This is so sweet, I can still feel the sweetness permeating my mouth the day after.

This is the creme d la creme of ciders. When I see it I buy out the place and stockpile it in my home. I just love the taste, it’s like fresh squeezed apples low in sugar. Out of all of the ciders I have had the pleasure of drinking domestically and abroad Strongbow in the bottle is the best.

From the bottle, clear bottle, golden yellow straw color, brilliantly clear. Aroma of apple juice and skins. Lots of clean apple flavor, sort of candy like, green apple. Crisp and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refreshing but more of a "cidre light." Tart and sweet but low on essence of apple, mostly carbonation.
