Strongbow Cider Review

If you’ve spent enough time in pubs, especially English ones, you’ve probably seen the yellow and black Strongbow tap. Strongbow, though available in a keg, is actually not a beer, it’s an alcoholic cider.

The pour has a really heavy, but sweet aroma of apple and a hint of pear. The flavour is similar, but it has a hit of green apple sourness. There is also a bite of the added alcohol (5.3% ABV). The body is a very pale yellow, resembling a wine almost as much as a beer. Then again, why should Strongbow look like a beer?

I’ve been told Strongbow is an inferior English cider, that it’s similar to drinking mass-produced brown-bottle beer and calling it great North American beer. I’m not a cider expert. Cider is something I’ll drink very occasionally for something different and Strongbow is fine with me. However, I do know of a good Canadian cider to suggest. Waupoos is brewed in Prince Edward County, Ontario by County Cider. While good, microbrewed and a little sweeter than Strongbow, it is much stronger at 6.5% ABV. Be careful. Drink responsibly.
