Default To carbonate, or not to carbonate...

...that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler...etc.
Do you guys like your cider carbonated or uncarbonated?

Carbonated is tasty, but before you do carbonate, I'd say try it flat first, just to see if you like it. That way, if it's flat, there's no worries about glass bombs. But carbonated is tasty, don't get me wrong.

I prefer ciders lightly carbonated. Just a little buzz on the tongue.
