Strongbow Gold Apple Hard Cider
Style: Hard Cider
Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 5%
It’s a Memorial Day Malt Monday! With the summer season officially off to a fantastic start I thought it would be a great time to feature a refreshing alternative to traditional beer, Strongbow Gold Apple Hard Cider. Strongbow has a rich history of cider-making and has been making cider for over 125 years.
Strongbow Gold Apple Hard Cider is a perfectly balanced, crisp tasting cider-style malt beverage which captures the sweet and tart notes of pear, Golden Delicious and Honeycrisp Apples. This particular beverage is gluten-free making it a great bottled-beverage to those who want to enjoy a beer-like beverage but have gluten sensitivities.
I enjoyed my first Strongbow Gold Apple Hard Cider while grilling outside on a beautiful Spring evening. The Strongbow was a nice selection to sip on. The taste was light and I liked that it was low in alcohol, which is perfect when looking for a simple beverage to enjoy while tending to your grill, kicking off an evening of festivities or to help you wind down after a long day at work.
Imported by Heineken USA the Strongbow Gold Apple Hard Cider is part of the two new recipes released by Strongbow in 2014. The other recipe released by Strongbow is the Strongbow Honey and Apple Hard Cider.
Strongbow Gold Apple Hard Cider was a nice surprise and would definitely be a nice choice at a BBQ for a gluten-free beer alternative. I enjoyed it and it is definitely GGG approved.
Have a happy and safe Memorial Day everyone!
