Svend’s Cider Blog 2014

I thought I should log the ciders and perries I drink as well as the beers, but they ought to go on a separate list. So I’m writing this now. As I don’t drink as many, I’ll just do one post per year.

(Rating system: 1-5. 1: undrinkable. 2: not nice. 3: decent/good. 4: extremely good. 5: one of the best I’ve ever had. Read more about my rating system)

Farmer Jim’s – Dry Cider 4
La Cantina – La Cantina Reserve 4
Samuel Smith – Cider Reserve 3
Westons – Haze Cider 2
Marble – Lagonda IPA 4
