Are there any fellow cider drinkers in here? When i am not drinking wine, i love nothing more than a refreshing pint of this sweet stuff <3

I haven't delved too deep into a wide range of them, so will be using this to EDUCATE myself on better varieties but i did try Stella Artois' cidre over the weekend and it was surprisingly delicious! Apart from that i always opt for a classy Strongbow~

Nothing better than a cold pint in the sun too, so i am looking forward to the summer cool.gif

YES YES YES omg my life out can be summed up by the ciders I choose to drink. So much love for the format, it makes alcohol enjoyable.

Strongbow is a good reliable one but I mainly enjoy it because the taste brings back strong memories, and good ones at that. All the time. It's certainly better than some things some bars have on tap (hi Stowford Press). The collection of drinks that involve beer giants branching out into cider like Stella or Carling are also rather good but I guess relatively unexciting considering the variety out there.

I will normally go for either Thatcher's Gold or Strongbow or Magners (yeah, I'm not fussy) if I want a mainstream pint of one, but the sweet berry ciders are even BETTER in most respects, they also seem a whole lot less bloaty on the whole, so very much love for Kopparberg, Rekorderlig and all their ilk.

Being where I am I also have a pretty great choice of more local ciders and they vary, they're often a lot sweeter and stronger than the national brands. Among the more well-known, Cornish Rattler is notoriously strong for a cider and as long as I have a lot of water to ward off the headaches, is fab on the beach in the summer <3

I definitely have a lot of opinions on this. laugh.gif

You can't beat a good Kopparberg, failing that a Magners or a Bulmers is wonderful.

A big fan then ohmy.gif

I forgot about Kopparberg, love that too! I always go for the mainstream ones, but i really should branch out a bit and expand my tastes. They're all just so satisfying *.*

The only types of cider I'm not keen on are apple and pear based ones. Passion Fruit Rekorderlig and Mixed Fruits Kopparberg are what it's all about!

Omg yes Strawberry and Lime Kopparberg is basically heaven liquefied and bottled wub.gif My #1 alcoholic drink, probably my #1 drink altogether actually. I do like normal cider too, nowhere near as much but given I hate apple juice it's an achievement!

Ooh Brothers' Toffee Apple cider is lush too <3

Although an avid wine drinker, I resort to Savannah Dry from time to time

These two and Bulmers! I don't venture into cider territory too much as I'm more of a vodka enthusiast but wouldn't exactly say no! wub.gif

Pretty much the only alcohol I ever drink (bar occasional celebratory drinks like champagne/wine, but even then I'd rather have cider), my faves are the sweeter ones - Rekordelig, Kopparberg Mixed Fruits, Bulmers Strawberry and Lime & Brothers are all divine, and Thatchers, Aspalls & Somerset are good for something slightly stronger, but no too strong that I can't even drink it (like most types of beer/lager ph34r.gif). I haven't touched a Strongbow in years, feels too plain/basic nowadays.

I love having one at the end of a VERY stressful day or when I've completed an essay, feel I may need a lot of it with the stressful times I've got coming up! (I sound a bit like an alcoholic there, I can assure you I'm not tongue.gif)

Really enjoy cider, I even made a homebrew caramel cider for the beer festival a few year ago.

Do like a bit of apple fermentation I do! biggrin.gif

I do that with wine. Not a huge amount, just half a glass or so but i need to have it almost every night now so people think I'm an alcoholic when i mention it. It's just to relax me especially, as you say, after a long and stressful day. I will probably switch to a cider or two a day once the weather brightens up biggrin.gif

That's alcoholic apple juice, right? With usually enough sugar to make your teeth instantly fall off. Not here for that. Unless I spike it with rum. Rum goes with everything. Who else likes rum? RUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

there are much better fruit ciders out there than koppa/rekorder. annings a new british company do a pear and mint one that tastes like mojito and old mout new zealand cider is very fresh, they do a kiwi and lime and a passionfruit and apple.

in terms of draught i'd probs say symonds is my favourite, drier than strongbow and very crisp, not so keen on aspalls which is a bit too full bodied for my tastes.

i know a ridiculous amount about cider too~
