Strongbow is one of my favorite cider beers. It has an aroma of granny smith apples so it gives off a really sweet smell. The taste has a bit of a sour apple taste as well but well-balanced. Delicious beer especially with a cinnamon sugar rim.

Draught @ Hudsons Canadian Tap House. Pours a clear yellow with a small, fizzy, short lived, white head. Sweet aroma of apples. Sweet flavour of apples. Light body with a watery texture and soft to almost flat carbonation. Weak and boring.

Sweeter all around than some, with a pungent bittersweet aroma and flavor. Nothing that makes you say wow, but nothing to tell me why this is ranked so low. "

Pour from bottle, this cider is light gold in color, light bodied and lightly carbonated. Smell floral and taste fruity with very subtle aftertaste. Something quite enjoyable in hot weather.

Un liquide doré qui est dégarnit de mousse. Un nez de pomme et de miel. Son goût est acidulé comme la jeune pomme et en est porté par une texture soyeuse. C’est à peu près ça. Pas de défauts, en fait son seul défaut serait qu’il est sans qualité non plus. Version à 5.3% (M.A. 31.03.15) (1167-030814)

50cl can. Slightly puzzling that I haven’t got around to rating this before - as to me it’s the "standard" against which other mass-market ciders should be judged. A pale straw pour with moderate carbonation; sweet, floral, dessert apple aroma; tart apple taste; and a dry finish. Unsophisticated, but refreshing.

14.9 oz can. Poured a boring clear straw yellow color with a thin white head. Taste of candy apple, floral, and dry. Medium carbonation, thin body.

Clear yellow body with a thin white head. Aroma is apple. Taste is sweet apple with dry finish. Refreshing but nothing special.

Draft @ British Beer Company. Clear piss yellow color, no head. Active level of bubbly carbonation. Aroma of smashed green apples, nothing more.

The body is light like every other cider I have ever sampled. Fizzy carbonation with a light tingle. Sweet malt mixed with watery apples. Not the worse mass produced cider out there. It’s drinkable without any major flaws.

@ Sandy Bay, Cyprus. Can (500 ml) from local supermarket (€ 1.50). Sweet, fruity and light acidic with notes of apple. The finish is dry, sweet and fruity.

Not sure how this chemical contraption is called a cider, maybe the delivery lorries have to drive past an apple tree on the way to the shops and pubs? If you lick the striking part of a match box you get the same flavour, which can’t be good. Advertising and marketing has got this cider where it is today, nothing else
