I'm a cider drinker from Somerset ...

Cider is the specialty of our northern neighbours, the Hessians, who produce an excellent

"Äppelwoi" (= "apple wine"), although for my taste many varieties are a bit too sour, bor-

dering on apple vinegar.

Isn't cider just apple-beer?

Apple-Beer :eek:

I once used that word beyond the Hessian border. This is why there are those Wanted

posters ("Preferably Dead - Otherwise torture before, during and after arrest.") in all

Hessian towns, and their armed forces have this "Shoot on Sight" order ... :shocked:

*sigh*

"Beer" is produced by the brewing and fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains—most commonly malted barley, although wheat, maize (corn), and rice are widely used. Most beer is flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included.

"Cider" is a beverage made from apple juice. Non-alcoholic and alcoholic varieties are produced. Alcoholic beverages from cider are made from the fermented juice of apples.

I like Cider once in a while too. Unfortunately, the only English cider we can get here seems to be Samuel Smith's. How does it stack up in the rankings of Cider? If its imported to the States, then my guess is that its the cider equivalent to Budwiser. ;)

Pretty much. Proper cider should be cloudy and made solely from pressed apples (the yeast for fermentation should be the natural yeast that live on the skin of the apples)...

Technically, if it isn't cloudy, then it isn't cider at all , but Apple Juice. I think.

Yes.

Britain has been infiltrated by soviet agents to the highest levels. They control the BBC, the main political party leaderships, NHS & local council executives, much of the police, most newspapers and the utility companies. Of course the EU is theirs, through-and-through. And they are among us - a pervasive evil, like Stasi.
