I am on the hunt to expand my range of Cider beer. Unlike most people, I say the sweeter the better. My favorite (and the one I can get easily in most Chicago bars) is Woodchuck Amber Cider. I've tried the other commercial, easily available ciders, but none have really had such a pure apple flavor as Woodchuck. Hornsbys tastes more like a wine cooler to me, and Woodpecker and Strongbow are too dry for my tastes (I am also not a fan of Green Apple varieties). I have also tried Ace Cider, Magners, Cider Jack and Hardcore, but none of them did much for me. Can anyone suggest a couple more brands for me to try? I live fairly close to some large warehouse sized liquor stores, so finding them shouldn't be too hard, but I would love some input from some fellow sweet cider drinkers.
