    As the title says really.

    I love good cider, plain and simple, but more often than not I'm disappointed by most ciders. I'm currently drinking some Henry Weston's cider and its pretty nice but I'm looking for some new stuff.

    What I'm looking for is something:

    Not too sweet
    At least 6%
    Less than about £2 per pint if bought in bulk
    Nice!

    Anybody got any recommendations?

    Thanks very much.

    Have you tried different Westom's ones? My favourite is by far the old rosie cloudy scrumpy but pretty much all of their ciders are very good quality.

    Other than that if you want to buy in bulk, its alway worth asking at local brewers about their range of ciders as the best things aren't mass produced.

    My favourite is Weston's 2009 Vintage. It is medium dry, 8.2% and vegan. I always have some in - currently got two bottles in the fridge for when I finish my dissertation.

    I've had some other wonderful special vintage Weston's ciders, but they don't sell those anymore.

    Savannah's my favourite. No idea what it works out at per pint given that I've never encountered a pub selling it draft, but it's delicious stuff [=

    K cider

    I'm not fussed about neg.

    I think K cider is like 8.4% op, not that sure. Tastes like very fizzy apple juice, so it's a win.
