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.

Not sure what’s going on… I love Hornsbys. HOWEVER… The hornsbys I know and love is the George Hornsby’s amber draft. Packaging is blue with yellow label. I don’t know what that stuff pictured above is… I purchased a six pack recently, thinking it was just new packaging.
Nay Nay fellow cider lovers. This stuff tastes much like I imagine dirty socks would. Terrible aftertaste, and a musty smell. Just awful. Do you know if they are the same manufacturers? It is a disappointing recipe change if so. If anyone wants to relive early gym class memories and put those olfactory memory makers to work taking you back to your old gym locker… I have 5.5 of these you can have for freeeeee!
