2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Originally rated on 6/4/08. Never had this before, its pours a fizzy golden body with a rather thin white head and spotty lacing. The aroma was of overipe apples and alcohol. the taste mirrored the smell. mouthfeel was thin but crisp, and it went down easy. overall it was a nice change of pace, and i would say its worth a try.

A GOOD WAY TO DRINK OF THIS CEDDARS IS AT BEER FESITVELS. THEY’RE SO LOTS OF CEDDAR TO TRY 2 SIPS OF AND ITS GOOD. ESCPESHALLY WHEN ITS SO HOT OUTSIDE 2 SIPS OF CEDDAR BEERS AND YOU FEELING GREAT. HORNBY’S TASTE GOOD AND NOT TO SWEET OR TO MUCH APPEL FLAYVER BUT HAS A JUST A LITTLE BEER TASTE TO. DO YOU THINK THEY’RE THINK TO PUT IT IN TALL BOYS? THIS WOULD DRINK PRETTY GREAT AT THE POOL.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with a fizzy white head that dissipated immediately. Aroma is apples, acetic, sugar. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a tart following. Overall this is so so and comes across unnaturally sweet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
331ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden orange with a very thin white head. Sweet aroma of apples with some tartness. Sweet flavour of apples and light caramel with a dry, bitter, tart, light acidic finish. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Disappointing, there are better ciders out there.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. The head lasts longer in the pint glass, but both heads are bubbly white and dissipate within less than twenty seconds tops. There wasn’t any lacing and there was a ton of carbonated bubbles rising because it was a clear yellow color that was seen.
The smell had some tart and sweet apples and that’s about it.
The taste was exactly the same.
On the palate, this one sat pretty light and could be sessionable pounder in the summer. But the carbonation came across pretty sharp on this one.
Overall, for me, not exactly one I’d have again but then it is a cider.
