HardCore cider is a solid American style cider, a bit beeryer than English cider but still enjoyably dry. There’s a strong malty flavor to this cider, but an unmistakable pleasant apple tang throughout. I didn’t like it as much as a dryer cider, but it’s still a good drink. It also has a nice heavy character that a lot of ciders try to avoid. I usually drink ciders with meals, but I would say the strong character of HardCore makes it more of a stand-alone drink.
