Strongbow is a dry cider produced by H. P. Bulmer in England since 1960. Strongbow is the world's leading cider with a 15 per cent volume share of the global cider market and a 29 per cent volume share of the UK cider market. Bulmer's is a subsidiary of Heineken International, the multinational Dutch brewer. In 2011, Strongbow Gold, produced in Belgium, was launched across Europe in response to cider's growing popularity on the continent. In 2012, Strongbow was the highest selling cider in Australia and was the second-highest selling cider in North America. The majority of Strongbow is produced at Bulmer's Hereford plant, although regional variations are also produced at Heineken's cider mill in Belgium and in Australia, where Carlton & United Breweries own the rights to the brand.

An angry buyer said they bought a 6 pack of Strongbow hard cider because they love apple cider and angry orchid but then they were seriously disappointed. Another drinker said "It tasted like a straight beer & not even a good one to me. I poured most of it out in my sink & the rest of the 6 pack has sat in my fridge until I can find someone to give it to."

"YH Westgate Glendale Az. Eaten here maybe 6 times over the last 8 years. Never again after yesterday. My wife and I dropped in 4 a late lunch as we needed to visit the area. First my wife orders a pineapple cider which she usually drinks. It didn’t taste right. 15 minutes later the waitress comes to us with a sample glass and says so sorry you got Strongbow apple cider is this what you wanted? Which contained the drink she ordered. So the waitress then brought back a pint of the correct drink and said you can keep the Strongbow. My wife asked me to taste the difference as I know Strongbow very well. Next discovery the Strongbow tasted watered down! Then I ordered a Peroni for me. The waitress then returned to advise they had run out. Eventually I chose a pint of Kronenberg 1664. When it turns up she places it right Next to my wife’s cider and it is clearly a short measure! and the beer was cloudy. By this point we were at ‘let’s just get through this’ mode so didn’t say anything. I hear too many stories of staff messing with food if a customer is difficult. Then the meal. I order the Nashville spicy chicken listed a a ‘featured’ meal. It was so unrecognisable from its description I immediately asked the waitress if I had the right meal. There were 3 sweet potato pancakes that were literally black through over-cooking and 3 pieces of battered chicken that were a very dark brown - heavily over-cooked. As this was my first chance to eat that day (4.00pm) I was starving and just got stuck in. The pancakes tasted like burnt normal flour pancakes with no hint of sweet potato. I dissected them and they showed no sign of sweet potato. It was also obvious that the chicken had been recooked with a double layer of batter. This is normally a warning sign that you’re eating yesterday’s food recooked which with chicken can be dangerous. So we finished up and I told the waitress the meal was bad. By this point I was feeling nauseous from the chicken. The manager came and said they normally double-batter their chicken and I could have had it single battered as a special if I wanted. None of this is obvious from the menu and quite frankly the food was verging on inedible so I wasn’t buying that. He offered to recook the meal to my requirements but I was feeling sick by this point and so he took the meal off the bill. I cannot really fault the waitress or manager but there is something seriously wrong in the kitchen and with the bar staff. We are British snowbirds and have been eating in local restaurants for the last 10 years and have never had such bad food and drink. We will never go back. We will take the walk across to Twin Peaks the next time we eat in Westgate."

"Let\'s face it - cider should taste of apples (with the exception of pears, of course). What I buy canned here in Canada isn\'t worthy of the name - in a country that thinks cider should be sweet and fizzy. From the 0-teens I drank cider from the farm 3 miles away - made from cider-apples too tart to eat, and including possible windfalls, crushed in a press a hundred years old and running along channels in the floor to a vat where it matured for 3 years or more. It is non-sparkling, slightly sour, somewhat cloudy, very apple-y, and potent. To get the equivalent taste and looks, buy the \'still\' apple cider that is non-alcoholic - and imagine it as 8% proof. In my 20\'s I drank at \"The CIder Bar\" in Newton Abbot, Devon, UK - one of only 4 pubs specialising in cider in England. Their cider came from a barn 25 miles away, and was so strong that the landlord would not serve more than half-pints to \'vurriners\' (anyone new) or women. Now - that was a cider that let you know it was apples.... Strongbow, on the other hand - or at least the latest iteration - is sweeter, \'skinny\', slightly gassy, minimally-flavoured, and - horror - made with, as they state, culinary apples. Blasphemy! Wrong tannin count, completely destroys the \'rounded-flavoured\' bitterness of farm cider. And it\'s served chilled, whereas it should be cellar temperature. There was a time some 40 years ago that Strongbow could be called cider... nowadays it is an almost insipid travesty of pulverised and factory-processed apple-flavoured soda. I If I could award 0 stars, I would. Pass...."
