Not Bruce but George Hornsby’s Hard Cider

Posted by Jess on Oct 25, 2012 in Hard Cider


I picked up some Hornsby’s Hard Cider in Crisp Apple at the local Jewel today. To be honest the only 2 kinds I found were this one and the newish Michelob Ultra Light Cider. I decided to go with Hornsby’s. I’ll be honest, I kinda wish I had taken a better look at the Michelob. It said light so I’m guessing it probably has less calories then the Hornsby’s (180 for 11.2oz).

When I first popped the cap off I noticed that it smelled disgustingly sweet. So sweet that I looked at it again to make sure I didn’t somehow get non-alcoholic apple cider, which by the way I HATE! Nope…5.5% alcohol in this puppy. At first I wasn’t much of a fan. Its really sweet and with a fairly mild flavor..but as I’m drinking (I got a phone call and have now almost finished the bottle) its pretty good.

To sum up…Hornsby’s Hard Cider isn’t a favorite however its not bad enough that I wont buy it if its the only option.

Hard Cider Reviews

I’ve been on a cider kick since we went to England in 2010. I had my first cider or, maybe I should say the first cider that I really liked at The Cavern Club in Liverpool. It was Magners Irish Cider on tap in a glass with ice. Every time I think about that cider I get thirsty. I’m not sure if it was just the atmosphere, being on vacation or the company I was with but it AMAZING.

Since then, I have been on the lookout for good ciders. And I have found many, many ciders that are yummy.

Be on the look out for more information then you will ever want to know about each and everyone that I have tried and am now required to try.
