Haha nope, this beauty. Be warned, like the mamba, she bites.
I usually drink Stowford Press when I have cider on tap. And Blackthorn from cans.
I've got common tastes, this was £3.99 For 4 tins. Good stuff to be fair. Stowford is a very nice pint though.
Yeah Stowford is nice but goes down a bit too easy.
Is it sweet? That is usually what puts me off cider I need to find a dry non sweet one.
I suppose I would describe it as somewhere inbetween. I love a nice cold cider on a warm day. But normally it's a lager.

I was wondering how this thread still existed, and now I see it's because we aren't talking about the song anymore.

Hang on, we had 45 pages of appreciation until the cider drinkers weighed in.

This local company called Schilling makes a really good grapefruit cider that I'm quite addicted to. I normally don't go in for cider.

I'm happy about this cider talk as I know it won't be long before we return to the thread and chat about how great this song is. Or I'll just get drunk again and bump it up in a couple of months time, either way, the thread stays relevant.

I may go back to posting every time I hear it as I did for a while.

I dislike my dog sometimes.

Ok so I'm on our usual evening walk. Headphones in, playlist on random, getting some good stuff. Dog happy to sprint along, nice evening, perfick. WBTCORAR comes on, excitement travels through my body like electricity. I'm rocking along on my walk, dog loving life nearly as much as me, I decide to switch that volume up. "Oooh," I thought, "that's firing on all cylinders now." The song continues into that lovely instrumental bit where you're wondering where it'll go from here, how it could possibly get better. The final "Marconi plays the mamba" is coming up, it's an epic moment. It's nearing closer, nearly there, almost at climax and bang!

The dog decides to shit. She just shits. Ruins the momentum of the walk and tune, ruins the end of a great song. Walk ruined.

I admire your dog's critical expression.
