Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Got this at a small party the other evening. When asked for a beverage and told there was no beer, (how sad), I spotted one of these in the fridge. Well, actually there were several. Wanting to slake my thirst with something in a brown bottle, I asked for a 'church key' with which to decapitate the vessel, releasing the alcoholic apple nectar awaiting inside. Although my taste buds were jonesing for something hoppy, it was enjoyable nonetheless. Decidedly different, and it is a great alternative for refreshing your palate.

And for you guys out there thinking that hard cider is a 'ladies only' drink, you only need be reminded that Magner's sponsors the Celtic Rugby Union. Those guys take a pounding and that's tough enough for The Reaper. It should be
tough enough for you too.

Speaking of pounding, I read on their website that the parent company is Bulmers of Ireland, renown for pounding different kinds of Irish fruit into hard cider submission. Pound one for yourself and see.
