Scrumpy is a rough farm cider from the West Country of England, often cloudy, usually much higher alcohol than regular hard cider.

I was in Exeter one time and wound up in an ancient pub that had authentic country scrumpy. I ordered up a pint of "Ol' Skull Splitter," or whatever they called it, then was not sure when it arrived if I wanted to drink it. And of course in English pub style it was merely slightly cool, not cold.

Anyway, I wouldn't say it was tasty, but it wasn't bad either. But when I had finished it and tried to leave I discovered that someone had stolen my legs.

Still wish it was sold in 6 packs, but I recently had their honey cider or what have you and it was good. Stores only carry the original though.

Was about to make a thread about this, then I found this. I hope so. I do see Magner's popping up at more bars.
