Strongbow has long been one of the most popular ciders in the UK, and Dark Fruits is one of their most popular flavours. So, when a drink like this is launched at 0.5%, you kind of know that low-alcohol cider has hit the mainstream.

So, is this the cider for you? Well, that depends on what kind of cider you like. If you’re a traditional farm cider buff, this will be too sweet for you and you’d be better off with, say, Sheppy’s or Hogan’s. If on the other hand, you’re one of the many drinkers who’ve helped ensure a boom in fruity medium and sweet ciders, this one may be just what you’re looking for. It’s also less sweet than Kopparberg’s low-ABV offerings, which may suit those who prefer medium cider to sweet.

Perhaps the greatest tribute we can pay to it is that we tried it alongside it’s 4% ABV equivalent and we really couldn’t find much of a difference between the two. Alcohol has a certain taste and feel, so you’ll always know whether it’s there or not, but all the other elements of a fruity cider are here for you to enjoy.
