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.
