My new favourite cider is Thatchers Vintage (2009).
because they do Westons Organic in all Wetherspoons, except it comes in a bottle and it tastes of bacon.
The one bad thing about Wetherspoons is they don't do a decent cider, even in Bristol. They do Westons Perry, which I guess is pretty good for perry, but perry is rubbish, plus cider is surely a more popular drink, so why not do an equivalent cider???????
and get yourself a bottle of Thatchers Vintage 2009. Good stuff.
and very cheap too!
I've never noticed it.
Now it usually comes in boxes and is a bit of a find. A real shame. I might even SEND A LETTER OF COMPLAINT
it's stonking awesome and it only 5pound a box at tesco
The weatherspoons at the Marina sell Old Rosie for1.95 a pint AND you can get 2 liter jugs for 6 quid at good off licences... its like 8% wooo wooo!
except the proper iced stuff I once had in a Hereford pub. Christ.
is Kopparberg Pear. So castrate me.
-nothing ending in -ers
That is the only rule you need, even if it does mean having Strongbow more times than you'd care to mention.
THERE'S ALWAYS AN EXCEPTION
Thatchers is also very good btw
TRY SOMERSBY CIDER
15% apple juice?! Have a word with yourself, Rick.
I'm so fucking telling you right now. Don't even think that I'm not telling you, get yourself some of that, lay back and cum all over yourself from the taste.
"cheers to your eyes"?
it is good.
it is better
Aspalls by a nose...
followed by Stowford Press and Addlestones for something a bit drier...
No beer policy courtesy of a 15 pint Guinness night and subsequent hangover leading me to get the horrendous pre sick salivas whenever I even smell the stuff...
yeah, Aspall Draught and Stowford Press are the top two, with Aspall Draught just edging it. Have never seen them in bottles though, other than on the respective websites :(
om nom nom
Thatchers Gold is the greatest cider in the world.
Closely followed by their Katy single varietal. But I do like a Strongbow as well, I'd happily drink that all night. Westons Organic too.
Anyone familiar with Black Rat?
Bulmers and Magners can fuck right off, they taste like kiddies apple juice.
Compared to drinking pisswater like Tennants or Carling it's practically delicious. Better than Blackthorn too.
so does some of the thatchers (not sure which vareity)
on a cider related note, do they still do Exhibition Cider in the Corrie Tap?
welsh cider I know. Its very very nice though.
if you put a little bit of ginger beer in (shit) cider, it makes it taste drinkable
but i DO know that a cider shandy made with ginger beer is really really good, so you might be right
if you have money I recommmend doing this, it was brilliant
