I find myself gravitating towards cider very frequently anymore, there sure are some awful soda-pop like ones out there, but there are more than a few great ones that are pretty easily avaliable. Iíve had a few very good ones that get slammed on here and for the life of me I donít know why. I know Iíve been annoyed about "head retention" comments in ratings before, but it is important to mention head when rating cider as some of them do have a head formation (usually that rises and falls like champagne)

The video of Johnny Rotten visiting Roger Wilkins for some German TV show is most entertaining if you can find it somewhere. It used to be on YouTube but seems to have gone from there.

Iíve visited a fair few cideries on the Eastern side of the US and, whilst there were plenty that I found very pleasant they were usually rather too well-tempered for my tastes compared to the funky, tannic, mouth-puckeringly dry scrumpy I was weaned on. I asked a few of them whether they had considered spontaneous fermentation and generally got looks suggesting I may have recently arrived from a distant planet.

American cider makers are deathly afraid of natural fermentation and brett in general. Its odd.

Where I live, you have to REALLY search to find any ciders that arenít Woodchuck, Angry Orchard, Fox Barrel, or Crispin. I have only ever bought one Woodchuck variety pack (some of my first reviews actually) and I admit to liking all but the Fall seasonal.

Iím glad that RB is home to the beverages that nobody else wants: Mead, cider, sake, and perry.

I love ciders. Lots of smart-ass comments in the bars around here lately about how theyíre not for men, but theyíre too good not to at least try each of them.
