My first one was actually a Bulmers(don t know if there s a difference) at a pub next to Giant s Causeway a few years back so at least I could say I went native:)
I found that after the first one (the thirst quencher) it becomes a bit eeeeuuuurrrgghhhy alcopopsy .
Bring me the dark mild landlord:redface:

There is a reason they pour it over ice - it is so you can't taste it.

was standing at a bar last year waiting to buy a round when the guy near me bought a pint of the stuff, thought that looks good so bought one myself. it tasted pretty poor actually. A bit like coffee, looks better than it tastes.

Cheeky bugger, it was almost £3 a bottle, when I start on the whitelightening (think that's the one) I'll let you know :D

I don't think there is a difference, but they couldn't name it Bulmers in the UK

They can as I have drunk it here when they didn't have any Magners :)

After some research [1] this is what I have found out

They are both exactly the same. Magners is the brand name used in England, Bulmers is the brand name used in Ireland.
It's the same cider in a different bottle. Magners in England, Bulmers in Eire. Although the names used to be the other way round until some marketing genius swapped them. He certainly earned his money because virtually everyone in London seems to drink the stuff, clearly forgetting that it is, after all, cider.
Neither, they are both homogenous shite, Try some westons scrumpy or Old Rosie. Now that is cider!
:D

[1] Quick Google.
