Ernest Cider – As Gay As Ever!



Who you expecting Elton John? This has really become one of my two daily drivers. If I want something harder I go to Ernest. If I want softer it’s Thornbury. Equally enjoyable in their own ways.

Nothing has changed in terms of my overall. This cider packs a punch. Quarantine is a shit show. I’ve been drinking more tea than I’d care to admit. I don’t care how good cider is. Tea > Cider always.

To be clear on this cider though. As a daily driver.


Let’s get this out of the way. I’m WFH now. I ain’t got time for pretty pictures anymore. This is my CoronaStation. You’ll get to know it well in the backgrounds of my pictures.

I was pleasantly surprised to see they were updating their can design for Gay Pride Month. These cider makers have gone balls deep in representing their social leanings and I’m all for it. If anyone thinks it’s a negative to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community in 2020 (or 2010… or 2000… or 1990) they’re a fucking retard plain and simple. It’s like refusing to say systemic racism exists… (looking at you Legault)

Or that bullshit “All Lives Matter” when clearly it ain’t White people being fucking killed by police at an alarming kick.

There’s no risk to say you promote the LGBTQ community. If there is, the people you’re losing as customers are the inbred racist asshats you shouldn’t want as a customer.

Pride motherfuckers!

Humourously this gif makes it seem like there’s a parallel timeline in the 1980’s where Russia was fueled by gay atheletes.


Apples, Pure Honey, Organic Cane Sugar, Sulphites


Shit hasn’t changed yo. Same drink I love.


Surprisingly it’s got more of a pop than I remember but not in a boozy way. You can smell the fact that this is some hard ass cider. Heh. “Ass Cider”. I’m getting deja vu. I think I’ve laughed at that exact term before. Fuck I’m a child.

Speaking of being a child. They also put this on the can.

I know it’s not their intention and I know it’s ignorant AF but I read “Rainbow Railroad” and I imagine a bunch of guys laying ass up like rail road ties and you can guess what the spikes are. Imma see myself out.


I’m not going back and reading my reviews… I think this is the 3rd time I’ve reviewed this cider now? It’s fucking dry.
It’s fucking tart.
It’s fucking delicious.
