Beef Beer Review
is Tom Brokjaw reporting for the NBC news. In the past few weeks an event
has caught the minds and hearts of the entire nation. This event was planned
to be a breakthrough for new music, food, and beverages. An eclectic event
that would truly reflect the melting pot nature of the United States.
But, as occurs all to often, the event turned tragic. Only six survived
the wreckage that now lays where the Johnson Barn stood. Wulf Blitzkrieg
is now live with the story of the aftermath:
TB : "Wulf,
Wulf, can you hear me?'
Greg and I escaped the first annual Cidernationals with only the six members of the local family of Hornsby. That is a six of George Hornsby's Amber Hard Cider brewed by Hornsby's Pubdrafts LTD. As a result, we figured we should sit down, and in keeping with the October theme of cider, rest for awhile, and provide a review of the survivors. I rate this cider: 4 BB & B's - The taste is not so dry, but clearly a cider taste. This is also a good change of pace from beer and fits in well with fall.
Unlike the other ciders that I have reviewed, Hornsby's does not claim some relation to England, Ireland, early colonists, or whatnot. It merely claims that it is in the traditions of the world over, providing a pleasant taste that 'brings the most refreshing and satisfying taste that we know'. I like anything that is modest and not out to overcome the consumer with advertising. This is Hornsby's! It definitely lives up to its advertising and beyond. As stated above, Hornsby's has a clear cider flavor which is very smooth. It is not so sweet as the other ciders I have reviewed and does not taste that great with a large order of macaroni and cheese. It leaves a good apple aftertaste as well, great for two people hanging out after a big snowstorm. Hornsby's comes in second after Woodchuck Draft Cider (Amber).
6% alcohol by volume and priced at Krogers at $6.00. The other ciders calories are over 220 but Hornsby's is a low 170 per drink. The diet draft cider.
Price: Paid about $6.00 for a six-pack
Availability: Widely available.
