Drink Review: Carlton Cyderworks
August 18, 2011
At this tasting, they were serving three ciders. The first was a cider made with Asian pears, which is a pear apple hybrid of sorts. The second cider was Duke, an apple cider flavored with blueberries which I have to admire because blueberries are tricky to work with. The last one was a sweeter cider, Carry Nation.
I like Carlton Cyder. The thing that I really picked up on was that all of these ciders had really good mouth feel and a touch of tannin, both aspects which I seem to be lacking from my own cider. I asked about my observation, and I was told that all of their ciders have a 10% cider apple base, which would give it that mouth feel. Hmm.
