    I'm trying to learn how to like cider at the moment. I know I don't like blackthorn but other than that I haven't found one I can't drink. I find myself drinking stowford press at the pub, or Brother's strawberry cider if I can find it. Definately my favourite but it kinda feels like cheating cos it doesn't taste much like cider at all.

    Blackthorn is a dry cider, if your liking the strawberry stuff then i'm guessing your more of a sweet cider person...

    I reconmend, bulmers, westons medium sweet, or go into the 'typed' stowford tastes...you very rarely find these at pubs or supermarkets but if you go to a beer/wine/cider wearhouse you should find them...

    there i also reconmend the meduim sweet...

    I don't have a favourite. Before I gave up drinking I used to really like cider, but now I have to drink apple juice instead.

    Burrow Hill, the cider they sell at Glasgonbury, is delicious. You should be able to get it in some specialist delis or wine shops (Peckham's in Glasgow/Edinburgh sell it). There's the Weston's stuff as mentioned, plus I'm rather partial to Magners even though it's mass produced stuff. Perry is nice too, although the Kopperberg is a little sweet (however it is the "Magners" of perry, I'm sure you can get better stuff).

    Are Magners and Bulmers the exact same drink?

    Hmm, going to try Strongbow and Old Rosie.. but it'll be from can and bottle into a glass lol.

    I've recently grown accustomed to strong dry cider such as Black Rat (scrumpy version, not tried the fizzy one - although its served at my GF's pub) and Thatchers Traditional.

    Shame about neg rep for this thread, deserves pos rep.. but all my rep is worthless lol.

    Had a BBQ party last weekend.. made rum punch and brought a big carton of Old Rosie.. damn they mix well
