Hornsby's Crisp Apple Cider
Woof. I tried this when I couldn’t find a British cider at the store. I should have waited. Hornsby’s Crisp Apple doesn’t taste like apples or alcohol- it tastes like apple candy. The taste of apple flavoring is so thick in this drink that it kills the freshness you normally associate with cider. The result is a sacchrine drink with very little body that still tastes funky. The packaging makes a show of how you should serve it as cold as possible (a reference to the European over-ice trend?) but it doesn’t help. A cheap, nasty cider that tries to taste fruity by faking it. Skip this one.
3/10 (it would be lower but there are some REAL nasty ciders out there)
