Magners Cider

aka Bulmer's Cider(from Ireland). People this is now available outside of Ireland. You might have to look around for it...I go to a little Irish pub in a smaller town and they have it, but the big fat Irish pubs in downtown Seattle don't have it.
I love this cider. It's so good that I drank more of this than Guinness when I was in Ireland(and I love Guinness).
I don't know if you've ever tried Strongbow Cider, but it's crap(in my opinion)and it has a horrible after taste.
This stuff is awesome. It tastes like normal(not hard)cider...so you can drink a bit more than you might have intended. No funny after taste, just apple lovin'! I really want to encourage you all to try a pint.

Happy drinking!
Mrs.Clayton

I haven't been able to drink cider ever since I got excessively drunk (and v. hungover) on the stuff when I was about 15. I love Guinness though.

I had some cider at The Octagon Bar. I think it was called Wicked Apple cider or something like that...it was ok.

I'll have to look for that. The cider we have in the states is utter crap in comparison to what I had in England!

Bulmer's... I drank it more than Guinness, too. I was so happy when I saw the sign for Magner's at the Irish pub I like...something about how lots of Irish had to change their names when they came to the States, so the cider did too. After a few I tend to call it Bulmer's when I order, but the bartenders know what I'm talking about.

I checked my liquor store web site and they list Bulmer Strongbow. Is this what I should be looking for the next time I go shopping.? I couldn't find a listing for Magner's.

you can get massive bottles of Magners at the pubs here Its very sweet though but tasty.

I dont know why they sell Magners and Bulmers together though if they are identical.

I have the same problem as Fizz - bad experiences as a teenager have put me off for life

even just the smell of cider makes me feel
