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.

I love the Crisp Apple. It tastes like you’re actually biting into a crispy juicy sweet apple! It *is* sweet, but I like that. Feels like autumn when I drink a Hornsby!

A truly good hard cider. very crisp and clean while balancing the alcohol content with sweetness. Pours very clear. Definatly a keeper in any fridge for those who like alcohol yet don’t want something too strong.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2003 A cider that tastes more like apples than any cider I have had in the past. It even smells like pure apples. Crisp, tasty brew.

This is an excellent beer. Everything from the packaging to the cider itself is nearly flawless. This is my favorite cider. It is not as sweet as some other ciders out there. More acidic in my opinion. It is very amber in color and the 5.5% alcohol content is masked by the very strong apple taste of the cider. Not a beer to drink as your go-to beer but great for special occasions.

This is the harder to find version... Not too bad ! Watch the alcohol content on ciders.... Stay away from woodpecker cider !

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

One of my favorites. Has a mixture of apple mixed with citrus flavors, and crisp carbonation.

I am a VERY picky alcohol drinker. I love the fruity drinks. This cider has a smooth and crisp taste like no other. I have been searching for a favorite cider and this one is it! The finish is refreshing and fruity. If you like fruity alcoholic beverages and turn your head at most beer, try Hornsby’s. I’ll continue my search for a better cider than Hornsby’s, but it took me 2 1/2 years to find this one.

Dude, I had like six of these one time. The "encounter" ended up with me on the toilet with the worst diarea of my life. I strictly do not recommend drinking these unless you would like to clean out your boweles.

I really think this cider is underrated from the other reviewers. The aroma is quite exquisite. It smells better than those scented candles. :) It could be said this is a girly drink, but I like it just the same. It doesn’t mean I like beer any less, just that I really like this one too. The downside is that there are 21 grams of sugar in each bottle...so when you drink it, you’re drinking 21 grams of sugar...but then again, we when we die, we all lose...21 grams...
