Portland's fledgling cider scene needs something like Cider Riot. First, because the now year-old cidery brings some swagger so far unknown among the often meek glutophobes—witness the mob of Riot supporters who marched through North Tabor playing bagpipes and wearing kilts to celebrate the anniversary. Second, because of products like Burncider, a mild and quite dry draft cider. Unlike the hopped and beery Everybody Pogo, first in the Riot lineup, Burncider is a traditional British-style drop that uses a hefty dose of tannic cider apples. It's floral on the nose, with a tart streak, a mild sweetness and light carbonation. One glass of most West Coast ciders is enough for me, but Burncider remains subtle enough to session. Suddenly, I feel like playing darts, or something. Recommended.
