really nice

My husband bought 1 for £1 last night, he didn't need to get 6. He said it was nice.

Got some of this myself, I enjoy my Cider and found this very good indeed.

Have some heat.

Bought box of 6 yesterday.Not tried it yet! 6pounds.

Got 10 bottles for £1 each with my Asda shopping last week - there was no need to buy in boxes of 6 bottles. A little fizzy, but nice and refreshing enough. Very similar to Magners/Bulmers.

I found it perfectly drinkable, but obviously not on a par with with the Westons/Thatchers stuff. £3 for 4 cans aint bad, what you'd pay for any cheap canned cider and this is definately better, but I'll leave the bottles as I can get nicer stuff on 3 for £4 at Sainsburys.

I've tried it, not bad at all at that price.

£1.38 a bottle in Tesco

abv anyone?

drank my first bottle just and it does the job reasonably priced too.

Just been Asda too, grrrrr.... great deal, for a very refreshing, crisp cider, can see this brand being very popular this summer.

Apple wifebeater X)

Hand Picked apples?

How else do you get apples off trees, they dont have machines.

That's marketing for you

Haven't tried this so will give it a bash next time I'm in ASDA.

No need to buy a box of six when it's a pound a bottle anyway.

Very nice,and £1 a pint it has to HOT.

And the British can't produce good enough cider? Not interested so a no vote. So with tek monkey on this one can't beat some Westons. Personally I think Stella should stick to what they know best, surely there's not going to be a Magners bier?

Big Save!!

Silly comment to make if you haven't tried the product.

I've tried the cider and I like it. Don't see it sticking around at this price forever though, although I've picked it up the past 2 Thursdays at Asda for £6. Hot from me.

Big Save!!

The French do make cider too, it's traditional in Normandy and Brittany...celtic roots and similar climate y'see. I don't know if you've ever been to France but there's usually a good selection of cider in supermarkets there.

Yeah but Stella is Belgian.

Stella isnt french

Re-visited my local Asda for some of these, non in stock... the cans however, were all over the store (£3 for 4 cans).

Can anyone explain how hand picked apples make the drink taste better?

These aren't bad at all, I got myself a few. I'm usually big on cider, but these are nice and easy to drink.

Yeh I liked it too. Just got the one bottle to try
Who cars who makes what as long as its nice. Personally I don't like beer but it doesn't put me off but equally I wouldn't care if there was a Magners beer

Wrong! Have a gander here. A choice using 3 different methods.

As has already been pointed out, Stella is Originally) brewed in Belgium but with regards to the French connection, French ciders are usually brewed very weak and sweet - most of the ones that I've seen barely make it over the 3% ABV mark.

If you like Magners or Bulmers, you'll like this but, despite the heritage f the brewer with regards to lager, this is a mass produced cider and tastes like it.
Still hot, though.

nice drink. heated

Bit of a girly cider drink like Magners and Bulmers......not far off from Diamond white IMO

Prefer proper English cider myself, Westons organic rocks

Summer 2011's designer drink - disappeared by 2012 I bet.

Here's an interesting fact:

ALL APPLES ARE PICKED BY HAND

I don't think they've invented the apple picking machine yet, so ofc the apples are hand picked.

Ooops... tell a lie... they're at least hopeful they might have it soon...

http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/news/2007/06/robo_picker

So it's just marketing hype.

Can you tell I don't like the branding nonsense that is STELLA ATROIS yet?

Furthermore, 3(trois) litres of cider(re) for £6...?

Not that good a deal surely?

Most 2L bottles of the usual poison are around that price per litre.

Just INBEV or whoever it is trying to coin in on a brand.

The fact they try and tell you it's made with better apples because they're hand picked (same as everyone else) is just typical of the way they see the average consumer... an idiot.

I suppose if it's sweet and crisp enough, cider's a refreshing summer drink, maybe £6 isn't so bad, but it's just cider people.

Hi all

Only 50% hand picked apples (see back label) so either the other 50% are picked by some other means e.g foot or it's 50% sugar and/or other cheaper ingredients (only 4.5% abv) not to mention colouring of some kind. IMO cider is not naturally that colour.

Have tried it and IMO just about ok at current offer price but prefer the real thing e.g Aspall Dry Premier Cru Suffolk Cider (7% abv) or Westons Oak Conditioned (8.2% abv) or Organic (7.3%).

Aspall is on offer at Tesco 2 for £3.00 so a good time to try and compare for yourself.

Have a look at the links in post 28.

Well I have just picked some up from my local asda, cos its such a glorious day I opened one immediately on entering my home, dispite being slightly warm it was very nice, I then experimented mixing it with good old traditional wife beater cold from the fridge, whoa now we are talking a mans drink, top banana I say.
