What’s in Magners Irish Cider?

Thanks to an anonymous correspondent in the US, where ingredients labelling is mandatory, I can now reveal the true composition of Magners. This should be of interest, notwithstanding the fact that one of the ingredients is “hard cider”.

The front of the bottle has a label that says

Magners Original
Produced in Ireland
330ml 4.5%alc./vol.
Irish Cider
by WM. Magner
Vintage Cider

The back label says

  2. Sorry Arne… it tastes sooo bad… (mind you those pint bottles are so gooood!)
    Here’s a totally independent view on Magners:
    When filling my bucket at a customers house recently, I noticed two bottles of Magners on the side.
    ‘I see you like a drop of cider then,’ I said, nodding in the direction of the bottles – one of which was empty, the other untouched.
    ‘Urgh, not that stuff!’ she replied. ‘It tastes like a cross between Lucozade and Iron Bru. I’m giving the other bottle to the bring and buy.’
    Nice one, I thought. Nuff said.

    I really love magners but the problem I have found with cider is that it has way more calories than beer.

    Me and my mates have been drinking the stuff in our local snooker hall in Belfast (Northern Ireland) and over the past several months I’m pretty sure our beer bellies have been growing at an alarming rate.

    I think I’ll have to revert back to good old harp lager

    Sounds very interesting – but being a Dane and living in Denmark, I think I’ll have to settle for Carlsberg. I guess I’ll have to swing the UK sometime soon and try this fantastic cider.

    Does anyone know what the coloring agents are? Is there Yellow dye #5 in it?
