    Bump

    I am glad cider has become much more widely popular. I really dislike most beers, so cider is my saviour.

    Round here we have a bunch of usuals: Thatchers, Addlestones, Aspalls, Stowford, plus the bottles: Westons (which is always on offer, and is wonderful for a quick fuzzy feeling). Koppaberg, Rekorderlig, et al. Then the boring shit: Bulmers, Brothers, Magners, Blackthorn, Strongbow etc.

    Still, way more than it used to be, IIRC.

    Being a Devon boy, I of course have a soft-spot for some others: Sam's, Shaky Bridge, Otters, [Cornish] Rattlers - the latter being my favourite. Oh yeahhhhh.

    I find rattler seems to get a free pass just for being Cornish. But then again I like Normandy ciders so my opinion might be forfeit.

    I do like a bit of cider. My local has started stocking proper eldeflower cider, which is very tasty indeed.

    It gets a free pass from me because it's:

    A) Tasty
    B) Ludicrously strong

    They can't even make a decent lager, and thats supposedly their forte, so fuck knows what their take on cider tastes like. Dogshit I'm willing to wager :\

    'Cidre' is apparently made from 50% apple juice. Not really cider then is it. The best 'premium' mass market cider that is widely available is probably Aspall's (100% apple juice).

    Cidre is really quite nice. They also do a pear variant.

    Can't beat a proper Perry. None of this apple-flavoured cider nonsense.

    I'm quite a fan of Stowford Press. It's crisp and refreshing.

    Cidre drinks are a bunch of fairies, Old Rosie is a proper cider. Don't mind a bit of Black Rat either.

    Any cider that's poured over ice can do one. Magners has even less taste with a load of ice added. I'd rather just have a glass of iced water.

    Can't go wrong with a Green Goblin. Shame the only pub that sells it near me is a grotty biker bar.

    I'm purely a cider drinker - for some reason, everything else gives me bad acid indigestion. Odd but there you go.

    There's a pub in a town near me (Glossop) called The Star, and the landlord loves his cider. He has a beer fridge completely full of random cider's all the time - various westons, katy, aspall (both the draught and the premier cru (lethal)) are all standard, and he gets other random's when he can.

    He told the brewery in no uncertain terms what they could do with the strongbow draught, and he's replaced it with stowford press. So that on draught, along with old rosie on draught + the fridge makes it a complete winner.

    If you're anywhere near the area, I'd highly recommend it

    And he does cider festivals every few months too.

    I can't actually remember most of them ;-)
