I really like good crisp cider. What a find is too sweet.

Does anyone here know of a good cider brand(s) for me to try ? Cheers.

I dont like cider to much, but I tried a Sommersby cider a little while ago, it was very good and i've been buying it since then on the odd occasion I want a drink.

Thanks, didn't know about them, will try them for sure.

Any others ?

Brew your own, far nicer and more economical.

I'd be interested as well. I like to use cider for cooking but as I haven't found a dry one yet, I add apple cider vinegar to either apple juice or cider.

Speights Apple Cider is the crispist one I have found. Love it! Don't like a sweet cider at all.

Old Mout used to be a fav as it was dry ( the orgional one in the plastic bottle) ,but I prefer Honesty box over it now. They have quite a few different types but I like the Braeburn one the best.
They are found in the chiller section at the supermarket and in a quite big can.

There are so many different types of ciders on the market and most are super sweet and just taste like lollie water. Maybe their demographics are 18 year old females!

Old Testament is one I like, I don't find it sweet, can't tolerate the mixed ones they are far too sweet. Used to like Rekorderig but they only have flavoured stuff so no longer buy. Have magners in fridge which is good too.
Pear or Perry can be a bit sweet and it does depend on what apple are used as well.

Thank you all, what a great list; that will keep me testing for a while.

According to hubby Sommersby if you just want something general from the bottle store.
