I've been considering a cider for my wife. From what we have purchased at the store, I can certainly see myself drinking them also.
I think I simply took too many readings during the course of lagering. I was checking every weekend to taste the progress but must have let something in. I was bummed because I could not taste it prior to kegging. It got worse with age. I nearly cried while dumping it in the garden.
