This tastes very much like what a proper cider should taste like, think an extremely strong apple juice in taste & texture. Just be weary when drinking this down the pub by the pint load, from my own experience Old Rosie really does pack a punch!! Highly recommended though 😉

If you want to buy a scrumpy from the supermarket. This will be the one. very drinkable. It's nice to go back to basics once in a while.

Orange colour, still and very hazy. Aroma is of rich apple with some sweetness. Smooth with a strong apple flavour and some toffee in the finish. Some funk to finish.

An easy, smooth, still cider. Light taste of apples and reasonable price at most supermarkets. Can be bought in a medium demijohn for around £5

A good old fashioned still scrumpy. Perfect in a half glass with a pork pie and chutney.

Old rosie is one of those ciders i will drink every once in a while, but its not top of my list when given a choice. On the stronger side but ever so slightly sweet.

Classic English dry cider which is best in bottles, pubs need to learn to rotate boxes for better taste

Probably easiest nice cider to get hold of in the UK will be found in most supermarkets. Not too sweet not dry, a little fruity with depth. Best served just cooler than room temperature but not cold as it loses some flavours. This is miles better than anything uou can buy in a can. This is a good introduction to proper cider and is a good low cost cider when bought in the 2lt bottles. This is slightly carbonated in 500ml bottles and it changes the tasting notes slightly.

Old Rosie is an interesting cider. It’s still, quite bitter and gets you tipsy quickly!

Another recommended shop bought cider. Could disintegrate stone from acidity yet smooth in flavour. A proper farm style cider.

Liz and Hugo thought I’d love this, and they were right! Not quite as thick flavoured as scrumpy, more like sparkling scrumpy light. And not too sweet,

Cloudy yellow, with a light apple candy aroma, carrying tones of straw and funk. Flavour is of of crisp dessert apples, with a little background sourness, andca trace of funk. Not totally unpleasant, but it's taste reminds me more of apple juice which is about to go off rather than a cider. Won't be bothering with this again.

I've enjoyed it bag-in-box for many years at numerous Wetherspoons. Only negative is sediment accumulates at bottom of the bag making the last 2/3 pints undrinkable. You're supposed to shake the box every day to distribute sediment evenly. But it still gathers in corners and it's a big ask for busy and possibly uninitiated bar staff.

Found the nose of this one actually a little off putting as it’s pretty funky. Like the light fizz but not a favourite...

I am learning to enjoy the carbonation challenged ciders but Old Rosie, although this one is too dry. Nice fruity taste that definitely stands out. I also heard from a source that it is made of fresh squeezed fruit rather than concentrate.
