COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hornsby’s Crisp Hard Cider has an elegant golden hue with the aroma and bouquet reminiscent of sweet apple juice. The taste has rich apple notes and a slight effervescence making a well balanced mouth feel with a little tanginess.

Smooth, easy to drink, not overly sweet, though not overly flavorful either. Still, it fits the season.

12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head that lasts a while for a cider. Aroma of sweet, artificial apples. The taste is tart apples. A bit grainy. Thin bodied. Meh.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Looks like apple juice. Smells and tastes like apple. Sweet and a little tart. It’s a cider. While there is nothing really special here, it’s drinkable and fits the fall season pretty well.

Bottle purchased at Kroger on Polaris. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of apple juice, a bit of tartness and light alcohol. Flavor is spiked (and carbonated) apple juice with a sweet apple finish.

I like balanced the sweet is to the tart. Compatible to angry orchard only it tastes closer to actual cider.

I like Horbsbys’ crisp apple. I think it’s comparable to Woodchuck, but Hornsbys is a little more tart.

12 ounce bottle purchased at WinnDixie supermarket for $4.49/6-pack. Not good.

Clean and crisp, this a a tart apple cider. Very refrehing - not much but clean apple flavor. Good cider.

Not really a cider drinker, but I am starting to like them more and more. The smell of apple vinaigrette and the look of a dehydrated pee. Taste of a slight vinaigrette also but the apple itself is very good. A wonderful refreshing beverage for grilling and mowing the grass if your not in the mood for a beer.

Not much to critique with this one, but here goes my submitted attempt anyway—it’s a lucid, urine-bayed cider of which smells a little unsettlingly of stale wheat bread and simultaneously what it has the liquifiable essence of. Apples only detectable if you cram your nose on the lip of the bottle and snort away. Zero head. Tastes sweet—gratingly sweet—but seems to have an alright balance for the style in which it represents: caramelized sugar, apple cores, and sodium. Complex? Not so. Interesting? Meh. Drinkable? Yessir!
