Reposted here; though not strictly food.

What's your favourite cider? Do you prefer fizzy or still; dry or medium?

The Henney's Exhibition Cider (2011 vintage) they are selling for £1.65 a bottle at Tesco is beautiful, as is the still variant. Personally I prefer still, as it doesn't make me burp and I can drink more without wanting to throw up.

Unfortunately I live in't north so local cider isn't a common thing. Manchester's Moss Cider looks interesting and next summer I'll try and get my hands on some.

As a drinker of Kopparberg and Bulmers and Rekorderlig and that type of thing I imagine I'm putting the cider equivalent of alcopops down my throat and will invite plenty of scorn.

Well it's genius; really. Your average bloke won't drink WKD cause it's a 'girls' drink' but he'll happily sup on some pomegranite and apricot cider.

They put extra sugar in the apples when they ferment to produce extra alcohol, then water the resulting high-abv product down, so your average bottle of Bulmers no. 17 has about 5 teaspoons of sugar in it. I used to drink the same as you, but now I drink really dry stuff and going back to kopparberg is like drinking pure sugar cane.

Nothing to do with being girly. I just don't have the palate for dry stuff.

Ooh I did try some Aspall recently, that was very pleasant.

The worst is Brothers Toffee Apple cider, it's ridiculously sickly. The best 'girly' cider, even though I can't stand most of them, is Jacques (although when I worked at Tesco many of the bints who bought it called it Jackies).

Try some Kingstone Press. It's £1 for a plastic bottle as tesco, and it's not very dry; quite sweet as a matter of fact -- but still nice.

There's a reason why "The Ultimate in Quality" is in quotation marks.

I do love the shape of the Aspall's bottles.

I recently got a bottle of the henley's very cheap from aldi, so might be worth looking in there if you want more. I used most of it for cooking (pork in cider with apples, 'twas very good) but what I drank was good.

Yes because somebody said that about it. If it was as you imply it'd be: ' The ultimate in "Quality" '. You ignorant sod. Back to GCSE English with you.

I appear to have offended the only person who enjoys K Cider. Back to your Vauxhall Nova and the dole, chavlad.

Furthermore, the same thing is implied. It implies that only is is not the ultimate in quality, it's not the ultimate in anything. Plus, they could have said it in a mocking tone. Not that you'd have heard them over Clubland 46.

They are good guys at Mosscider, got to try a few of theirs while chatting at IMBC this year, cider's not my scene tbf but they were doing interesting things with their cider such as hopping and barrel aging. There is usually Moss Cider / Thistley Cross or Orchard Pig punting their bus stop libations at IMBC for the uneducated palates that venture out to Vikki Baths

You seem to know about the Manchester scene, it seems. I live right in the centre, and there are just no places to buy anything but supermarket major ciders. I'm not a beer fan but even then there really aren't any places to buy stuff like that in the city centre. Do you know any decent beer/cider shops? I've heard The Epicurean is good; do you rate it?

Apologies fella, I'm on't other side o' Pennines but drink in the pubs/bars a lot when I'm there, I do know Beermoth on Tibb Street M4 will have a mighty stock (and prices) for his beers but I've never been to his shop, I usually get my take out for the ride home from Port Street.

Cheers. I'm a Yorkshirelad too -- though should probably be exiled; as I don't like beer at all, just cider. I'm just at uni here.

Hungry Jack's: As you would expect for any cider that is 'American style', tastes like sugar. Not overpoweringly sweet though, so it was quite nice.

Abrahalls: Surprisingly bitter, but one of the best ciders I've ever had. Some really well balanced flavours. Would recommend.

At a quiz night last year, one team composed of four individuals included one Frenchman. Open goal missed when it turned out said Frenchman had filled in the team name as "Quarter French".

If you can get your hands on some, the Yorkshire Cider Co cider is absolutely divine -- there are even little bits of apple floating in it.

They finally got some in. The only problem is it's so strong I can't have more than a couple of bottles because I'm a fucking lightweight.
