This is great to serve to anyone who isnít a big alcohol drinker (like me). I donít have much experience drinking beers and ciders, so if youíre looking for a "professional" opinion, mine isnít it. But if you want to know if something tastes good, this does (to me). Also, what a pretty bottle! It feels petite.

Nice smell, almost like Apple juice. Too much honey, not enough apple. Nice for a sunny day on the porch. Very sweet.

About what youd expect for a lame tick on a hot july 4. Very sweet, restrained nose hints at apple, bruised apple dominates the flavor. Difficult to discern any honey but for an extra sweetness you dont normally find in a cider. Medium body, light carb, nice bright golden color. Best very cold

bottle - This cider smells of sweet apples and... well honestly it smells like an apple jolly rancher to me. It has an overly sweet apple juice flavor. My girlfriend says we should give it to children. Theyíd love it. Itís not all that bad, but yeah, itís too sweet.

Better than regular strongbow, but still not the best stuff out there. Nothing to scoff at.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog snifter Ar: Very little smell, just the faint hint of apples. Ap: Light, blonde straw-colored body. T: Tastes more like an apple-flavored alcopop. It is like lightly-flavored alcohol with apple flavoring added. There is a lot of honey sweetness here, that probably makes it seem like an alcopop. P: You can feel bubbles, but it is smooth all around. O: This doesnít even taste like a cider and is much different from what I recall as regular Strongbow. I generally give mass-produced ciders the benefit of the doubt to just try them, but this is probably the least-cider like of the bunch.

Bottle: Clear gold with a white, soapy head. Very soft honey, Golden apple aroma. Taste is sweet, honey, apple.... Flavour is very robust. Really tasty.

back off butter cheeks!! .. . deep gold .. apple, light honey, and sweet apple juice. . the palate is quite light but super easy to drink .. . nice for a few quick slams but nothing iíd drink frequently .. . . i think itís cute that baseball umpires use that tiny broom.

Not my favorite Strongbow but itís all they had at the grocer so I thought letís try and never again honey tastes kind of chemically enhanced. But I tried it so you donít. Tastes sweet but finishes dry. Once was enough not bad but not great. Next time Iíll pass and get Magners or Woodchuck.

From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a clear yellow with a tiny white fizzy head. Nose is apple, honey, other light fruits. Light body taste that is super sweet. Finishes very crisp and refreshing. Not a huge cider drinker but they are a nice change of pace in between bigger beers.
