I am continuing my research into hard cider tonight. I picked up a "Woodchuck 802" six pack.
This is a very pale version of the Amber I talked about before. About the same amount of carbonation, but a bit dryer, almost like the difference between Schweppes ginger ale and Canada dry. I like it, though I think I'd like anything I made to be just a shade dryer, maybe slightly more bubbly.
I still say a peanut butter sandwich would be the PERFECT compliment to hard apple cider.
