Again overpowering ginger - I like ginger but at what cost?!

I love the balance of apple and ginger in The Dirty Mayor. The ginger is strong almost like a pepper flavor - making this a cider to drink for its taste alone. Pairing with food is a little tricky but it worked surprisingly well with bbq chicken and pulled pork.

Enjoyed this on its own, then saw it on the menu at a high-end Chinese restaurant and realized that its true calling is to be paired with spicy food. Highly effervescent, rich with ginger: this is an elegant cider of its type.

A nice ginger cider. There is a pleasant balance of apple and ginger with a little spice/heat on the finish. If you enjoy ginger beer, candied ginger, or Moscow mules, this is a cider you would like.

semi-dry which makes it easier to drink. Has a great hint of ginger and nice body to it

Pale colored pour with moderate carbonation. Strong aroma of ginger. Taste is somewhat spicy with a nice ginger flavor and a hint of lemon.

I love ginger and this cider brings it! I generally like my ciders a little sweeter than this one, but I really enjoyed the strong ginger bite of this cider.

This is my first cider from Citizen Cider and I was a little afraid after reading the reviews. My first sip tasted just like Jamaican ginger beer, with a little alcohol on the end. On my second sip I started thinking about copper mugs. I'm sure this would go fine with barbeque chicken, but I am cooking Pad Khee Mao later and I think this would go great with that.

One of the better balanced ginger ciders I've come across. The ginger is strong, but it isn't just heat, the flavor's there, and doesn't eclipse the sweet apple either. I remember it being lemon/ginger long ago, but it seems to be only ginger now?
