USACM Cider Style Guidelines V1.1

Cider is a beautifully diverse beverage. How do we talk about that diversity and range without confusing the consumer? USACM has adopted a foundational style guide to help unify the language we use to discuss cider. This is a living document, and it will grow with time. It is not meant to be a definition guide for competitions, so the definitions are broad and encompassing.
