Magners Irish Cider by Magners Original Irish Cider

Cider Guide is drinking a Magners Original Irish Cider by Magners Irish Cider

Peculiar deep amber, perhaps from caramelized AJC. Medium-sweet, but finishes a bit drier. Not my usual tipple...but it's a holiday!

Sidreria Bereziartua by Bereziartua

Cider Guide is drinking a Bereziartua by Sidreria Bereziartua

Very approachable Basque cider. Not too acetic, not too funky. Give this a try if you find other Spanish ciders too aggressive.

Cider Guide is drinking a Saison Reserve Cider by Cider Creek Hard Cider

I'm impressed with how the saison yeast accentuates citrus and lightly earthy notes. Medium sweetness. Balanced and very drinkable.

Motorcycle Wineries by Troy Cider (2013)

Cider Guide is drinking a Troy Cider (2013) by Motorcycle Wineries

Crave bold ciders? Seek no further. Apple, pear, quince. Wild fermented, barrel aged, highly acetic. Does it all mesh? You be the judge.

Turn that frown upside down! Deft use of crabapples to add tannins and pleasant sourness. Another solid cider from Tandem.
