That figures, the fact that i said that it is about the best that I've 
had is testament to how bad cider is here in the US.  The most prominent 
brand here is Woodchuck, which i find much too sweet.  A quick search 
indicates that they make a "Dark and Dry 802" that might be worth a try, 
but i won't be holding my breath after trying their other three.

I've never even heard of any of those.  I'll definitely have to keep an 
eye out, but I doubt that I can get them around here.  That trip to 
London is sounding more and more tempting...
