3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass.
The same appearance in both glasses: semi-clear glossy yellow to orange color with a bubbly carbonation to be seen rising. Bubbly head rapidly dissipates.
The smell had a nice sweet apple combination to the ginger - good, I expected it and it delivered.
The taste was pretty much the same. There was no aftertaste but it did have a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and was fairly sessionable. There was a certain crisp ginger spice over my tongue that seemed to detract from the carbonation, no worries but I did figure out thatís probably why the carbonation seemed to be a tad lower than most ciders Iíve had.
Overall, Angry Orchard did exactly what they said they would do with this one. Are ciders actually starting to grow on me? Uh oh... damn changing palate.

An interesting cider - but I admit I am a sucker for gingers. This is all standard cider ... except with the additional aroma and taste of ginger ... which is a plus in my book.

Nice apple aroma with some ginger in there. Taste is apple, slightly sugary sweet with a bit of ginger. Bit low carbonation. That along with slight sugary detract, but it is a descent cider. The more I drink the sweeter it seems, and the more the lack of carbonation detracts.

This is absolute crap. Too much sugar, zero alcohol, instant heartburn. If I knew it had been brewed in Cincinatti I would have assisted the store manager with throwing them in the dumpster. Donít waste your time with the ponce reviews. This stuff is garbage!

Bottle for my lady friend. Pours clear yellow, lots of bubbles. Aroma is strong apple, hint of spice. Taste is sweet apple, ginger in the background. Taste pretty good to me. Nice by my pool with all the bikini clad friends.

Bottle poured. Clear golden color, no head, lightly carbonated. Light tart aroma mixed with strong ginger accents. Light and silky body. Tastes vaguely tart, but the ginger is a tad overwhelming.
