    Just had a bottle of Weston's Vintage Organic. Damned fine cider. Taste like cider lollies to me. There's just something about a warm evening and a cold cider...

    I had some alcoholic ginger beer the other day. Lovely stuff. Wish pubs would sell it.

    Tesco. Can't remember the name, someone bought it for me. But great stuff. It reminds me of cider but obviously nicer, cos it tastes of ginger.

    Sainsburys probably, called Crabbies or somemat.

    I'm hard-pressed to say what my favourite cider might be, but I'm surprised at the mentions of green goblin as I didn't think much of it.

    Yes, Crabbies... that was it. Really nice. But then I love ginger.

    Does it taste of 'real' ginger ale - like the Old Jamaican does? Sounds nice...

    It's not as sharp as the Jamaican stuff (which I prefer), but the taste is there... plus it's got alcohol in it. :)

    Couldn't find the article I was thinking of, but LOL at this Canadian journo reporting on the exotic cocktail snakebite. :D

    Good stuff.

    I made my own snakebit on Saturday but it was mixed internally. I had a hangover for two days.

    Pubs sell Crabbies. It's sweet.

    Crabbies is a bit pricey though - over 2 a bottle in Sainsburys.

    Quite like Thatcher's Old Rascal. I like Green Goblin as well, but my local Sainsburys has re-furbed itself so that it has more stuff yet actually less variety.
    So they have about half the choice of bottles ales and ciders and have dropped the decent pickeled chillies but now sell TVs, saucepans and other shit.
    Bah!

    Cider is for Gypsies, drunkards and woodland folk.

    I've not met anyone who has tasted Crabbies and actually enjoyed it.
    I thought it was kind of, you know fucking awful.

    As for cider, I really like Savanna Dry:

    I got 5 litres of scrumpy decanted from the barrel into a plastic barrel from the lyme bay cidery on holiday last month. Cost me 7, and it sells in store at about 4 quid a litre. Great stuff but potent.

    I bought a 4 pack of this. I'm not a cider man, but it's ace on a hot day in the sun and 1 bottle got me merry somehow.

    You will all laugh at me for being so predictably middle class but can I recommend Waitrose own brand vintage French cider? I've not found anything better. Tastes just like my uncle's homebrew 'Moscht'.

    say no to Eurogamer sigs

    It is a perfect hot day drink, works quite well with a wedge of lemon stuck in the neck of the bottle too.

    Waitrose own brand Perry is also very nice indeed.

    I didn't mind the taste, a Moscow Mule tastes much nicer though

    We made Cider last year, very nice indeed and surprisingly easy. My wife juiced all the apples so it was even easier for me.

    After extensive testing and numerous hangovers, I declare that Morrisons sell the best cider:

    Old Rosy. Slightly sparkling cloudy scrumpy. over 7%.

    Either that or the stuff you get in old milk cartons at the Heathfield Show.

    Old Rosy is also available from Tesco, Asda and the Offie down the road.

    Nice stuff though.

    Cider is an amazing summer drink. Unless it's shit cider in which case it tastes like acid and chemicals.

    People who mix it with lager and put blackcurrant in it need to be destroyed. :p

    The Organic completely knocks me out. 3/4 pints and i'm totally out of it.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Cider \o/

    I like the Henney's Dry that you can get in Tesco. Dunno if that's supposed to be good or not though.
