Had this on tap at BU Pub in Boston. Rather sweet, and a bit less drier (wetter?) than the tap Strongbow in UK. Snakebites aren’t the same without the blackcurrant that’s so hard to find in the US. Its kind of weird to drink this repeatedly, if going with a cider go with something much drier for more than a glass. And do, do, do serve cold.

muzzlehatch (4462) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Bottle. Clear, ugly yellow-green, little bubbling. Slight medicinal/herbal quality to the dry flavor profile, almost no aroma..sort of sticky, mouthpuckering finish. Nothing there, really. What I wouldn’t give for a GREAT English cider available in the US.

DocLock (9675) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Had this at Ortlieb’s fest on May 8th. This is a new offering from Woodchuck. Pours canary, with aroma of apples and grapes. Tastes like a semi-sweet wine (like a slightly sweeter chardonnay). Nice smooth, crisp finish.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2004
My second cider ever – I think I enjoyed it more when I was younger because it muted some of the cider characteristics – it is smoother than most, certainly sweet but not as tart, and the aroma is not nearly as overpowering as some. Clean and crisp and still very drinkable, but I have moved on.

How many strongbows can one drink in a night? Too many. One of the best ciders I've had. A yellow appearacne with little head. Very sweet taste. Overrall good cider.

gluedupcow (10) - london, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2004
Very dry and madly carbonated yellow looking cider, I used to drink a lot of it in covent garden while watching live rockabilly band on sunday,getting headaches soon after too ,1 or 2 cans-not bad for a hot summer day though.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2004
Pours light gold with a rocky head and spotty lacing. Earthy apple aromas. Not too bitter. A hint of biscuits. Dry and sour flavors. Green apples. Traces of alcohol. Puckers the tounge slightly. Not bad though.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2004
Clear pale golden body. Fast disappearing head. Nose was not surprisingly apples. Flavor was tart apples and very pleasant.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2004
Clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Nose is sweet apples. Flavour is apple, crisp, not as sweet as most, with a dry finish. A good drinking cider.

imdownthepub (12909) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2004
Plastic bottle, pasteurised. Pale yellow, fizzy. Poor thin cider with harsh sharp acidity. Lots of carbonation.
