Wow, so many ciders to drink study!

First things first, let’s review the one I have in front of me right now, the Woodchuck Hard Cider Amber.

I don’t know about you, but I love the story behind this brew. The Woodchuck Hard Cider Amber was the first cider Woodchuck Cidery crafted when their whole operation took place in the owners’ two-car garage, back in 1991. What I’m sipping out of the bottle today is in essence the same recipe from those days – and part of America’s Hard Cider Legacy.

Woodchuck Hard Cider Amber is a strong cider, touting a bold apple flavor. With a medium body and golden silhouette, this cider has a clean finish. The Woodchuck Amber is a solid contender among its counterparts – such as Angry Orchard’s Crisp Apple. They’re both great hard ciders so this isn’t a conversation about winners and losers. While Crisp Apple has a “crisp” factor, it also has a taste of airplane apple juice (which I’m not saying is a bad thing!). When you drink Woodchuck Amber you won’t get any of that, instead you’ll taste a wholesome apple juice base, very fresh and bold.

You can’t ignore the awesome label with the woodchuck badger either, just makes me feel happy looking at it.

Overall this is a great cider for anyone, from the cider connoisseur initiate to the experienced sipper – an easy crowd pleaser and delicious hard cider.
