this is good stuff i got some when it was on offer last summer, its always good to have a mix of drinks for BBQ time. i will grab 4 of these which can go in the garage with the magners and the various bottled beers.
let it not be said that brum s BBQ's lack the vital ingredients, of meat and alcohol.

now to try and stop the mrs from adding salad rubbish to them, no one ever eats salad stuff at bbq's.

Organic? Nice to see even the drunks are finally taking health issues seriously.

This stuff is great, made mulled cider at crimbo with it! Certainly one of the better ones available in supermarkets anyway, although when in Wales I noticed Moriisons did a great range of cider.
#5
good deal. will try and pick some of this up at some point this week. cheers OP

Westons is proper cider, and this still variant is bloody lovely. Old Rosie is fantastic is you like your cider on the tart side with bags of flavour.
#7
This is top draw stuff. If I hadn't gone down the "Turbo Cider" route, I'd be buying it but mine is very nearly as good for less than 60p a litre.
#8
Tastes like apple pie. Is OK though if you like a sweeter cider.

Whenever the topic of cider comes up, I always hear of Old Rosie and Thatchers. How do these compare to Magners etc? What are they like pricewise?
#10
I always find it's hit or miss with Westons, some of their cider tastes terrible (bottled especially) but this stuff is lovely. Like sweet apple juice that eventually has you rolling in the fields.
#11
Personal opinion, but I wouldn't class Magners as cider. Try a Westons and taste the difference. Westons special reserve is also excellent especially when on offer at 3 bottle for £4 and believe me 3 bottles is enough.

The difference is Old Rosie, Thatchers and Westons are all Scrumpy Ciders traditional non carbonated made in the traditional way and not so mass produced as the more popular ciders - hence generally more expensive but far better quality.

I agree that Magners aint a cider...Westons is good , Aspells Suffolk Cyder is my personal favourite, but thats just my taste!!!

For anyone in scotland better enjoy these deals while you can, cos by my reckoning you won't be able to sell this for under a tenner once the 50p a unit law is passed! Have know idea how it will work in practice (unless the uk government follows suit?). Imagine if this was a tenner in gretna and a fiver in carlisle!

Cheers. I've just bought a load of Magners from the Tesco deal. I don't mind Magners, but I'd love to try some of these, especially as they seem to be stronger, sharper and uncarbonated. Do you know of anywhere that you can buy them in bulk from?

Will check my SCOTISH store the mora and phone the cousin! :)

This is okay stuff, its still not sparkling so you get the full flavour and you can taste the alcohol. This is the stuff for classy winos who have gone off Special Brew.

Westons Cider is fermented in Oak barrels - the only mass produced cider in the uk done in this way. I have been on the tour and done the tasting :P
#22
Great stuff, flat as a witches tit therefore not filling you with gas, enabling you to consume more before the legs stop working !!
#23
one of my favorite ciders and a bargain for a fiver usually around £6.30 these days.
or for a cheaper option 6 litres of frosty jack at iceland same strength for £6.50
perfect for sitting on park benches shouting at the pigeons :)

You can always sample the stuff first at wetherspoons it's usually on tap and then just buy your preference the supermarkets, definatly do that because like ales theres no guarentee of a nice pint and avoid westons bottled stuff - theres a fine line between that - and stagnant rat p1ss.

I reccommend this stuff, served at room temperature:
Westons Scrumpy Cider

The organic stuff is a bargain too so you might want to stock up on that.
#25
drinking it as i type, not a huge cider fan but i got a box to try a proper cider now it's sunny and i confess it's bloody lovely.

still clear cider, nice kept in the fridge, dispenser is nice and fast and drip free and it keeps for weeks open (not that i will have a problem there). stuff is 7.3% and works out around a bit more as something like strongbow but it's far nicer - don't think of this along the lines of something ghastly like frosty jacks (not that i have ever or would ever touch that) because of the strength, westons and most thatchers ciders are the good stuff.

edit - aldi did some thatchers stuff in a 750ml bottle i tried and liked, £1.99 from aldi though my local is now outta stock, worth a heads up.

i seem to recall the shelf edge ticket proclaiming usual price was £6.80ish and the deal runs till the end of the month.

Blocked at work but 99% certain you can get the 20 litre boxes (same as Wetherspooons use) on the Weston's web site.

This is a great deal - very nice cider at a very good price per litre...
Don't know why people buy Magners when cider of this quality is available for this price.
Mind you, given the choice, I prefer Aspall's cider, or close behind that a nice Dunkertons.
Waitrose usually have a good range of real ciders.

Yep, but £56.99 including delivery makes it considerably more expensive than this deal.

When in Wales last month Morrisons had over a dozen real bottled ciders (plus probably the same of industrial crap). Mind you, I quite like Katy and Green Goblin, which are technically the industrial crap but made better!
#30
Yum. Off to buy some now... ;-)

Visited the Westons cider press the other week. Only made from proper apples rather than a concentrate that most ciders like Strongbow etc are made from.... think real orange juice verses orange juice from concentrate. Also they are the only big cider makers that still use real Oak Vats to make the cider in.. adds a depth to the flavour... so they make traditional cider to tradition recipes using tradition methods.... and you can taste that.
#32
I'm shocked by the love here for Aspell, that stuff feels like its rotting my teeth as I'm drinking it... ohh so very sweet and tart! Good call on green goblin; although I'm lucky enough to live in the southwest, and we have a great selection, Stowford Press has to be one of the best widely available, Beesting (admittedly a perry) is hard to find, but absolutely fantastic.

Back to the deal, thanks for finding this deal, looking forward to trying this
#33
Good deal. Pop down to "The Apple" boat or the "Coronation Tap" when in Bristol. They always ahve a good selection.
I find Stowford Press quite nice, Katy isn't half bad, Scrumpy Jack works well at BBQ's and of course the age old classic Black Rat. Foul name, lovely taste. If you find yourself struggling to afford them, have a look at Natch. Cheap, cheerful and tastes better than Strongbow (Wrongbow as known by the locals). You'll be craving the "Natch Attack" once you try it.
#34
Up here (Stafford) nearly every pub sells Strongbow on tap and Bulmers/Magners as their 'premium' cider. It sucks! Luckily we now have a Titanic owned pub which sells a few proper ciders on tap and rotate regularily. I also got the landlord of my favourite pub to get Green Goblin in for me, plus he seels Thatchers Gold as his cheap cider which is still way better than Strongbow.

Anyway, I digress. Drank a few glasses of the organic last nght and today my urine smells refreshingly of apples! Damn good drink :)

Will 3 litres count as one of your 5-a-day?

Its over 5 pints, so is it all of them?

For the cider lovers, try Aspalls Premier Cru cyder. award winning, great tasting, and made to the same guidelines as champagne!

But this is a great deal and i will be picking some up!
#38
HOT deal but I wouldn't drink it if it was free.
#39
Good stuff, I miss finding it for so cheap since I moved out of Devon.
