On The Cider Report

@jester_bean I actually don't mind Strongbow at a push, and you can get it fairly easily (usually in shops). Whole Foods sold Sam Smiths and a bunch of 'fancy' not-proper ciders (that were actually OK) like the Crispins someone has mentioned. But God, the first time I came home and went to Asda and there was a whole AISLE of proper cider... amazing

On The Cider Report

OK. No. I say this as a Westcountry girl (where cider is from. Cider is not an appley soft drink, Americans!). You cannot have a serious report about cider that begins with Magners. Or, in fact, any of this nonsense!
It'd be like if I did a report about hamburgers and they were all tofu burgers from not-America.
Best PROPER cider I could find in the US was Samuel Smiths. Get some Weston's Organic, or better, some scrumpy. The rougher the better - it should be opaque orange-brown in colour. And no serving with ice, come on, that's not cider, that's an apple-flavour alcopop.
