Sweet and fruity to bold and brawny: A British classic sheds its girly image - The Globe and Mail
Aug. 08 2007 | Globe and Mail | BEPPI CROSARIOL.



Strongbow (England) $2.70/500-mlVery dry for a cider. Pale yellow. Subtle fresh-apple flavour and a hint of beer-like graininess. Light and clean. Very good.

Magners Original (Ireland) $2.80/500-ml Golden, full-bodied and round. Rich, baked-apple flavour. Nicely balanced, with distinct sweetness but fairly crisp on the finish. Very good.

Blackthorn (England) $2.80/500-ml Light, fresh apple flavour and crisp acidity. Like a cross between crisp, light Strongbow and fruity Magners.

Okanagan Premium Classic Dry Apple (B.C.) $10.45/6-pack of 355-ml cans (West only).A tad funky on the nose, but the flavour is clean, quite dry and fresh. Good value.

Growers Pomegranate Dry Cider (B.C.) $9.49/6-pack of 341-ml bottles Electric red and quite sweet for a "dry" cider. More of a fruit cooler than an example of cider's new manly image.

Williams Sir Perry, (England) $2.70/500-ml Light and quite dry, with an ever-so-subtle pear flavour. Very good.
