Smith & Forge Hard Cider Review
Hard Cider has been an exploding business in adult beverages. This has been a good thing for the most part, but there have been some casualties, so let me explain.
Smith & Forge markets itself as a cider that is strong, but not too sweet. After trying my first recently, I'm not sure it's not so sweet. Compared to other trendy ciders out there, it is a bit more dry. That's what I look for in a cider. My go to has always been Strong Bow, but with the booming demand of ciders, they have changed their recipe around and made the English dry standard sweeter. This didn't please me.
So I started the quest for a new. So far, my best option now is the Smith & Forge. It does have a decent balance and it doesn't give you the sweet bite in the back of your mouth like some of the other more popular brands have.
I'm looking for a good quality dry cider, and this isn't quite it yet. Although it is good enough I'll recommend you to try it.
I have to admit though that they do have some pretty solid marketing with hilarious commercials.
