Magners Pear
Aroma is kind of odd- no pear and just something kind of perfumy sweet/fruity and ashes. Flavor’s way too sweet, again no pear plus the carbonation is light. The carbonic tang would’ve helped to cut the sweetness. Finish is ok.

Roundstone Irish Ale
Pours clear orangey red with decent foamy white head. Very sweet - a little too sweet to the point that it’s a little sickening by the end. Medium carbonation. Barley malt and hops as flavour and a little watery

Nice orangey-pink colour, but not dry enough for my taste. I don't know much about ciders, and this one ain't gonna convert me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

*Bottle in Ireland as Bulmers Original. Smooth and fresh apples. Round and tasty with not too much depth, fruity with nice slightly sourish apples. Sessionable cider.

*Bottle in Ireland. Smooth and fruity. Sweetish with not too much depth. Easy to drink, sessionable. Not too bad but just sweetish sparkling apple stuff...

On keg at Mahons Hotel, Irvinestown. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - light red fruit and biscuits. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a solid example of the style.

Magners Pear
From Carrefour San Juan. In Ikea?s pint glass. Playing Big Fish Legend with daughter after dinner Pleasant to drink but too much smooth, lacking of punch. Ugly aspect, very transparent, watery-like and without foam

Bulmers (Magners Original Irish) Cider
June 2016 - Bottle shared in Watford as ’Magners Irish Cider’, 4.5%, made in Tipperary. Thanks to Leighton for bringing this 5 year old 2011 bottle. It’s been a long time since I last Magnersed. Clear orange, lightly sparkling, bubbly off-white head. Aroma is syrupy, apple, honey-ish, elderflower. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is tonic water, light apple, elderflower, flavoured sparkling water. Drinkable but not great. Quite impressed with how it held up. (2.6)

Clear golden colour with no head. A very basic and sweet cider. The type that leaves a stale taste in the mouth.

Bulmers (Magners Original Irish) Cider
As far as everyday ciders go this is OK. Taste is fairly sweet, but medium overall. Some sharp and sweet apple flavours as well as some grape, floral and honey flavours that are almost champagne like. It’s too fizzy, but easy to drink. This cider sells millions every year, but it’s been surpassed.

Magners Pear
Not too bad. Sweet tasting, but not as sweet as some perries. It is light coloured, almost clear. The taste is of pears and apples, but is very light on flavour, the over fizziness also detracts from some of the flavour. It seems slightly synthetic to me as well. It is OK for a hot day, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.

Certainly not as good as a proper bulmers in Ireland. It's a bit lighter and less flavorful, but still fairly similar. Gently sweet, very light peachy-orange color, and nice to drink on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulmers (Magners Original Irish) Cider
Bottle shared in Watford - bought on sale at some Tesco. Vintage 2011. Pours clear, deep orange with a reddish tint and a frothy film. Decent aroma, actually, with semi-ripe apples, some apple sauce. Medium sweet flavour with flinty notes, a slight artificial tang, juicy apples. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Not nearly as bad as I had feared.

Bulmers (Magners Original Irish) Cider
Bottle, 2011 vintage thanks to Leighton. It pours clear gold with a reddish hue and white head. The aroma is sweet, sugary, sweet apple, touch of apple skin and tannins. The taste is crisp, flat, sugary, apple, candy, touch of tang, hint of tannins with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Thankfully not as sweet as I feared. Not great.

Bulmers (Magners Original Irish) Cider
Bottle shared at the Watford tasting, many thanks to Leighton? A weird reddy iramfe clear coloured pour with a fading white head. Aroma is artificial, dry apple, tangy apple hint of bile. Flavour is composed of dry apple, semi sweet, artificial apple, mineral. Palate is thin, spritzy carbonation, semi sweet. Terrible.

Bulmers (Magners Original Irish) Cider
33cl bottle at home (8 VI 2016). Swiftly diminishing artificial soda white collar, topping a cognac-like, very clear orange brew. Neat looking cider with a nose of some vague spirit, wild yeasts (brett even), apple juice, geuze. The mouthfeel is pretty well carbonated, with a faint and watery body... all this hides a sweet apple, apple juice soda, mildly sweetened cider. This could have been a top cider, if it just had a firm body richer in taste. The fermentation clearly hints at a lambic funkness. A beautiful premiss, yet the whole is too faint. A pitty!

500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, sparkling. Aroma is syrupy sweet commercial cider. Taste is much of the same, with a rich golden full-flavour, but far too cloying and sickly sweet. Cider for the masses.

Keg at Jonny Masons, Dundalk, 05/06/16. Clear golden blonde with a well appointed white head that retains well. Nose is pale malt, straw, toasted grain. Taste comprises cereals, faint lemon, light bread, crackers, grain. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, semi drying close. Average lager fodder.

Deze cider heeft een geur die doet denken aan lambiek (in de verte). In de smaak zitten rijpe appelen, maar ook droge, hartige tonen. Niet te zoet.

(33 cl bottle in in rocks-glas.) Pours an apricot to orange hue and the aroma is marked with apples and yeast. The taste has a clear fresh red apple character with a little smoke. Made me want to try it with a peated a dram and yep, that was great! :)

Pours a clear, slightly peach colour. Aroma has slightly tart notes of apple. Taste is slightly sweet and a hint tart with notes of red apple and a bit of sugar. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Lively mouth feel with a mildly syrupy texture. Overall pretty tasty. I can see why it is popular.

Magners Pear
Holy wow, this is one of the worst soda pop ciders I’ve ever had. It smells kinda like grapes and nail polish w/ a savory undertone somewhat reminiscent of raw meat. It’s sweet as hell but at least it doesn’t have fizzy carbonation and there is a pleasant bit of tartness if you can get past the nose. Really not into this one. At least American examples are not actively foul just too sweet and stupid.

Pours orange with no head. Inviting aroma but far too sweet - but I guess that’s why I’m not a cider fan... Medium carbonation. I’ll steer clear in future

Bottle. Pours clear salmon orange with quickly disappearing light pinkish white head. Clear aroma of apple juice and some sweetener. Mild, sweetish flavour of a fizzy drink with faint, sourish notes of apples. High carbonation. Mild, slightly fruity aftertaste. Does not taste of much. A reasonable thirst quencher but nothing more than that.

Bottle up the White Lady. Appearance - pale golden with loads of bubbles and a thin frothy head. Nose - sweet pear and a bit sickly. Taste - very sweet and sickly pear. Palate - light to medium bodied with a sweet sickly middle section that continues through to the finish. Overall - a bit too sickly to be refreshing.

Somewhat thin, but building to a pear flavor that lacks in tartness. Sweet, buttery, then a woody finish. Meh.

500ml bottle into shaker. Acidic savoury nose but very faint. Clear golden cider, no head, highly carbonated. Watery with a (very) mild taste of apples. This is ephemeral. Slight touch of sour apple and sherbet in the finish. Slightly more interesting than tap water.

I like pear as a fruit and in a cider, but this one is pretty weak across the board. Super light color and body, spritzy like a soda. Flavor and aroma is weak fruit, dry, with a hint of tartness. Meh.
