Black Cherry...Nicest of them, doesn't seem as much gas in it as the others.

Overall gassy stuff, you couldn't drink it the same pace as beer. If you were on it all night I'd say you would need to be pumped out, perhaps it's more of a 2 or 3 drinks a session type of drink.

Cheers for the review:

I tried that Mil spritz Rosa once and it was nice enough - Tesco have it on sale now at 4 for €9.
I only had one but thought it was nice and the flavour wasnt too overbearing or anything.

Caveat to the above is that I 'd had half a bottle of wine & 2 whiskeys before but I still remember the drink as nice.

More Seltzer on special..

Smirnoff Rhurbarb & Raspberry / Orange & Grapefruit Hard Seltzer - 6 for €10 in SuperValu

Missus has tried most of these seltzers and reckons White Claw is the worst of them.

The Orange & Grapefruit Smirnoff is actually one of the tastiest.. other ones she recommends aren't as commercially available include SKA (Hibiscus Lime / Blood Orange) and also Wild Basin. SKA and Wild Basin are in Stephen St Mews / Craft Central.

the bulmers are only 440ml. Stella is €25 too.

If the bulmers were 500ml size that case works out at €31.82

the bulmers light is 500ml though, 24 for 28

Was in Clarehall earlier and picked up a 500ml crate (didn't help that them & the 440ml were all mixed together) and when I tried to scan it it first said it wasn't recognised, then the staff member said they knew what the issue was, scanned it and it scanned at €52. Swapped for a 440ml crate and went through @ €28. No Bulmers Light either that I could see

right, what usually happens is the crate can have a barcode and is not inputted, so they will scan 1 can and multiply it to 24 so its the single price which is usually very high.

If you scanned a single 440ml it is probably not recognised either, only the barcode on the tray of 440ml is inputted.

When getting the stella they have to scan a can, I now just leave the trays in my trolley and take a single can out on the belt and tell them how many I have. Stops them having to haul all the cans through the till.

Yeah, this is what happened - none of the barcodes on the 500ml crate were recognised and only the one on the top of the 440ml crate was recognised
