    Yeah, there is a nice Westons Organic one I get from time to time. Unlike the Strongbows of the world it actually tastes of apples. :ohmy:

    Aspall's is my favourite tipple. Absolutely superb.

    Yea strongbow tastes like fizzy pop and it doesn't seem to have much effect to be honest although its alot stronger than gaymers not sure why that is.
    Find westons unleaded a bit sweet tbh the leaded one can be nice though.

    And if feeling daring try a bit of scrumpy should you have the chance but be cautious though tis silly strong.

    Very much a fan of Scrumpy Jack....though it's hardly 'scrumpy' as you can quite clearly see through a glass of it!!

    Always used to go past the Sheppey Cider Farm near Taunton on my very long rides....hardly ever at a time it was open sadly, but I could at least see their orchards.

    Saw and ad on a bus shelter yesterday for a recently introduced pear cider by Bulmers....seems to be a lot more socially acceptable than being seen holding a bottle of Babycham!! :ohmy:

    I have got into Kopparberg Perry lately. Shockingly expensive in the pubs (£4 per bottle), but more sensible in Tescos

    Yea magners is sweet tosh. I think id have waited till i got to the offie to be honest though. That stuff makes me blind so does strongbow for some reason.Cant beat gaymers imho.

    Have you tried the Merrydown Vintage? Not bad for the price.

    Weston Press is nice on draught.

    Visited Glossop Beer Festival last year for a quick half at lunchtime, discovered they'd run out of bitter and it was only the 6 varieties of cider left.
    I woke up on the train in Manchester at about 7.30 ish. Luckily the dog and my shopping were still there.
