    Cider is like drinking cool-aid. Too easy to gun down 2-3 real quick before settling in to a more reasonable pace. I seem to remember having, uhm, a few on New Years Eve a few years back

    I like Woodchuck (regular and Granny Smith), but have never tried a brand I did not down like it was gatoraid

    sounds like you need to try some drier ciders. i personally want to try some of Frank Naish's cider, from Somerset (or any other Somerset cider, really), but i've never found it locally, even at places that have large selections of everything else.

    apple cider pretty much apple beer... this is an oversimplification, but its pretty much like this:
    take raw apple juice
    add yeast
    ferment
    bottle
    age
    drink

    you can think of it like an apple ale
