I have to admit you had me worried with the Lager thing.... :S
Because it feels very pretentious. They have a list of drinks which are apparently not "real" by their own definition and therefore everyone else is wrong. The link you posted claims that carbonation means it's no longer real. Well I like the bubbles! If I have to drink flat cider in order be thought of as a real cider drinking, then I'm not interested. I drink about 4 units per month of this type of drink in total so I would much rather have what I enjoy instead of striving to be "real." The "lager" bit was a joke by the way, as I knew you would bite ;-) lol!
I think you'll find us CAMRA members drink flower water, not lager.
None in Willenhall, Middlepiece Way
I'm aware plenty of people drink the above Magners its well marketed but there's plenty of people who mistakenly think Magners, etc are proper ciders when they are not, you get what you pay for. They do use apples in the product however they are not cider apples so in order to make it taste right they use malic acid. The juice is sterilized which kills the natural yeast then packaged yeast has to be added. They also add in a lot of sweeteners as that is the market they have created. They also use apple concentrate which is imported from Belgium & China. Proper cider often tastes like apple juice most people haven't tried it and are put off because of the mass produced products pumped out by the huge conglomerates. I also don't understand why you claim CAMRA is lager drinkers? they include a large spectrum of drinks/drinkers and regularly include real cider & Perry at their festivals which due to popularity are the first to run out of the supplies on hand.
