Refreshing but more of a "cidre light." Tart and sweet but low on essence of apple, mostly carbonation.

Rob_D_UK (806) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Pours a very pale straw colour with a thin white lacing. Very carbonated and has a sharp apple aroma. Taste is fairly tart and quite refreshing.

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

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; itís the taste of standing in a muddy field at festivals with a smuggled can in my hand standing in awe at the stage; itís the taste of late nights watching shitty TV and listening to great music with mates; itís train journeys of disappointment coming back from away matches; itís the taste of lying on my back in beer gardens slowly letting the sun & cider send me into a deep sleep. Whether itís 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, Iíll always have a soft spot for this stuff.

smaynard6000 (642) - 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.

mighty_meadow (212) - 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.
