If you mean "is it appropriate for girls to drink cider?" then "clearly yes".
If you mean "is it inappropriate for men to drink cider?" then clearly "no".
is that you evidently aren't from the West Country.
GOD FORBID ANYONE FROM OUTSIDE THE UK SHOULD KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ANYTHING, or even worse, have OPINIONS on stuff!
(overly harsh, sorry)
i'm half australian. which gives me NO right to even speak of alcohol. i am ashamed for my country.
but also half czech, which makes me an alcoholic genius that trumps everyone on these boards ever.
You can have opinions on what you want - I'm merely pointing out that I grew up in an area where cider most definitely wasn't seen as a girl's drink.
I also grew up in somerset and have drunk cider all my life....i first got drunk on it as a very small child whilst wassailing with everyone else.
If Britain had bothered with DOC's like the rest of europe then we coud have really had three particular areas of somerset being appellation controllees for cider cos it is just so right for cider apples there.
Hah sounds like whiterussian needs a drink off to prove the truth
leave paul alone, what's he done to you?
not since the eighties.
more modern magners or pear kopperberg one but only by girls who drink boys drinks who like girls drinks drunk by boys.
not the fanny.
shut up man
by the social board of dis? thats quite a low.
which means i also know that you are wrong
and dont try it with the e-hugs, i'm not big on hugs ANYWAY and you should know this
we can all drink it
must say i personly find girls who drink guy drinks attractive.
thats the girliest of all spirits
its all 16 - 17 year olds have at parties is a lil personal bottle of vodka, we have hip flasks full of whiskey or rum.
it's the AMOUNT of drink you're using to set the standards here?
Pretty lame by all accounts
Biddendens on the other hand is manly as fuck
it's just silly
no one with any self respect would persistantly drink it.
so maybe rather than being a girly drink, it's not exactly a manly drink.
my bad :)
to have a guy drinking it, its for both sexes, cider is a summer drink for everyone!
these are never seen drunk by homeless women, only homeless guys (or people going to parties just to get drunk)
chav,neds,schemies, and so on types drinking white lighting .
i have tried whitelighting a homeless chap offered me some and it tastes really rather bad.
its like £3 for 3 liters and has abour 24units of alcohol in it, that'll do me, a splash of squash and it tastes fine... but the hangover is terrible.
WCTFU (West Country The Fuck Up!)
Also, Strongbow is lowest common denominator cider that should only be consumed if there are no alternatives.
Blackthorn, Bulmers or Magners would be better commonly available alternatives.
Aspall's, Brothers and Thatcher's are a cut above.
but i guess for the majority of male disers that's not really a great concern
I still don't see where this 'CIDER IS FOR GUYS' angle is comming from, in the summer u have white wine and we have cider.
i can drink you under the table anyway
when ur too drunk to know what ur doing as i drink u under the table! SCORE!
come to Dorset and try Heritage ciders, over 8% proof.
Infinitely more 'manly' than piss weak, mass produced, chemical filled lagers.
but yeah, i should really know better than to start a discussion like this with a bunch of british people.
Stoford Press :)
Westons is sold in a variety of places in Brighton at least, thanks to so many pubs being owned by the likes of Harveys.
im pretttttty sure that thats westons righhht?!?!?
guinness . pint .
any form of neon coloured alchopop
half pint ( does anyone ever order a half pint ? )
( and if your male not wonder why your not glassed yet?)
anything bubblegujm flavoured...
any other forms of alchahol are for gays. lmao
Is it true that stella is nicknamed wifebeater or something like that?
not sure why though...
in ye olde days it was tradtionaly drinken by thee types who would consume and then said dregs would crawl home and backhand wifey.
thus its name.
or do wifebeaters just have a natural penchant for stella for as yet unresearched reasons?
its horrible as u dont even need a wife, i once crossed the road and whalloped mrs. cunningham from across the street.
let me go down a few pints of stella than i can give you a good arse slapping for your behaviour!
thus u wont beat me, but perhaps a wife across the street would do?
i probably dont need the stella to be honest.
blates gonna flail hand into my eye
white lightning u drunk
Obviously, Stella Artois aren't too happy with this, especially after investing so much money in marketing their product as 'reassuringly expensive'.
It's the 'Burberry Effect', but in liquid form!
(not by first hand experience i hasten to add)
u cant say this
by members of the chav tendency and the emergency services who have to deal witht he after effects of it's overconsumption.
Well, they're hardly going to ask for a 'Seize Cent Soixante Quatre' at the bar, are they?
My peferance goes Asahi>Oranjeboom>Leffe>Red Stripe>Grolch>San Miguel>Stella>Kronenburg>Carlsberg>Fosters>>>>>>>>>>>Carling
Tsingtao is also very yum.
I have to be biased and rank most czech lagers up there at the top though. Pilsner, Radegast, Gambrinus, etc..
seen lots of blokes drink it though.
I think its pretty damn uni-sex.
and blackcurrant is one of only things that makes strongbow drinkable.
I can't drink much strongbow on its own its rank. But Snakebite on the other hand thats well easy and often cheap as chips.
it tastes good, yes i say good.
and its in a pint glasses so there is alot of it.
cant really lose can you?
you cant really loose.
Unless you have to much and you turn purple.
snakebite = half lager, half cider
snakebite and black = half lager, half cider, dash of blackcurrant
no, i dont
half can tennents super
half can white ace
still use blackcurrant though
Half Larger + Half Cider + Blackcurrent + Vodka shots
cause you prefix 'turbo' onto something when you add vodka innit. i did make up the turbo s'n'b one though. so i can call it what i like.
The snakebite and black one.
Larger + Cider + Blackcurret = Deisel
Cider + Blackcurrent = Snakebite
Half larger + Half cider = not seen that before
was the day I wasn't sure what to believe anymore.
More a morning drink.
after working in a chesterfield pub i would say it is the closest thing to a unisex drink, after smirnoff ice.
Soft Northern Bastards!
why would you not jus have a vodka & lemonade?
i expected more from you.
or petrol maybe perma lighter fluid
water is the most unisex drink i can think of but who wants to drink water when the delights of alchahol welcome you so warmly there warm center spilling out and down from your stomach. lovely love radiating from you.
if you dont drink everyday your not happy.
are you happy? do you drink every day?
if you do drink everyday and arent happy i suggest crack. :)
Cider for breakfast, whisky for lunch, petrol for dinner.
Gin for brekkie
Gin for lunch
Gin for dinner
i prefer a nice kipper a glass of milk and a little codliver oil on a spoon
in your gin, right?
doesnt petrol give you that muuuuggh feeling though? your better starting with and hen working way down . very true
can i have a pint of Brains please?
and it's a welsh name as well. AND IT IS A WELSH DRINK so it makes perfect sense.
MR S.A Brain.
i know it's a name
but brain also means crow. look it up yourself: http://www.geiriadur.net/
it's just WRONG WRONG WRONG.
i love wales, but this is just WRONG WRONG WRONG.
unless you are walking home a little worse for wear on the morning after.
brain means crow. and again, brain is also a name.
i know a miss brain. it's very funny.
it made me giggle
the old adverts with aliens, tagline : "we've come to drink your Brains"
as I'm not really that much of a fan of alcohol. This often results in mocking from friends, but hey ho.
In regard to the good ciders mentioned, I would say that I would try these if I could actually find places which served them. But Kopparberg is nice if they have it.
om nom nom...
they are still trying to market wkd at men.
It's a blue girls' drink in a bottle. I don't care how many ads you show of men drinking it (the rebels) get yourself a pint of bitter and MTFU.
(I may myself be pisting whildt posted
it was on Blue WKD. However, I quickly manned the fuck up, and now I drink cider.
What is 95%? I'm young and naive in the ways of alcohol.
which is FUCK all.
MTFU, all of you.
it tastes of aniseed as i recall? and that can only be a bad thing.
that was 80%, do i win?
they're still trying to market wkd at humans.
Fucking amazing drink.
and then you drink it and you want to throw up everywhere because it tastes so foul.
a shame really.
or some sort of cute deer, me and toomanykooks devoured a bottle at ma house with a girl on vallium
It's the best.
I drink cider, often Strongbow and I'm a girl.
But I also regularly drink beer and lager, which are regarded man drinks...
if you mean like with ice then yes that is a girly way to drink cider
when i small and first got drunk on it, everyone was drunk on it men and women of all ages teenagers, children and even small children (me) so ....i guess it is kind of a uni drink
all drinks. if you're a male indie fan and dont drink it, you're as bad as a coldplay fan. 100% fact.
(I can't be bothered replying in all the right places).
Strongbow is a bit rubbish yes but it's basically the only choice you get in most places so whatayagonnado?
One of my current annoyances is the way that pubs now charge loads for cider. The Magners/Bulmers effect has led to an 'exclusivisation' of Cider so pubs think they can get away with wacking the prices right up, one of my 'in town' locals now charges £3 for a pint of Strongbow! Outrageous.
And side note, 'Brains' doesn't mean anything in Welsh, Harru is correct. If you want a Welsh named beer then I recommend "Thomas Watkins' Magic Lagyr" :-)
You need to come to the West Country.
In fact...come to Bristol and I'll show you the bestest ciders ever.
as my friend gets it for fee. it's not a bad drink at all, but there are plenty of better alternatives if they are available.
everyone should got to morrissons and indulge in their 4 bottles of cider for 5 pounds deal. there's about 25 different ones!
oh yeah, i don't think i've known anyone to ever think strongbow is a woman's drink
