2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12floz/355ml bottle into a shaker glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Apple-y. A little bit of something else that may be the ginger. Simple and direct.
Appearance: Crystal clear, bright, yellow body with no head at all, even with an aggressive pour.
Taste: The ginger actually has a large part in the flavor profile. Itís still mostly just the ginger and apple flavors, though. Which isnít a bad thing. Itís an unpretentious cider haha.
Palate: Light body with a short-moderate warming, ginger finish.
Overall: One of my favorites that Angry Orchard offers. Nice and ginger-y.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled at the 2013 Artisans Craft Beer Festival. It poured a golden/orange color with almost no head. The aroma was sweet with a hint of spice. The taste was quite nice with an unmistakable ginger taste but not artificial tasting or overwhelming. Not bad.

Bottle. Aromas of heavy apple and hints of ginger and white wine. Head is small, fizzy, white. Color is spakling clear amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic. Palate is light, watery with a lively carbonation and a lightly astirngent and dry finish. A tasty drink, very refreshing.

Not too sweet and the ginger gives it a grown up edge to the apple flavor. Much more girly drink but I donít hate myself for loving it.

3rd try from the sampler and yet another no head yellow drink. Guess that is the way of the hard cider. This one was slightly better with the addition of the ginger. Still overall was pretty much carbonated apple juice. My wife caught a wiff and asked with a really puzzled look on her face, "are you drinking apple juice?" I replied, "I am but just for today."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance of this cider is quite typical due to the clear light yellow color and the little bit of white bubbles that form when you pour hard, but the aroma sets this apart from the rest due to the strong ginger scent mixed with the slight apple hint, which almost feels artificial due to the overwhelming sweetness. The taste is quite sweet and slightly sour with a touch of a spicy kick to it, and the palate combines a light body, slick and thin texture, sweet texture, and flat carbonation.

This is my favorite of the Angry Orchard hard ciders thus far and I love the sweet yet bitter taste of the apple mixed with the ginger that this gives off. As with other apple beers, ales, and ciders, I appreciate a taste like this much more in the fall or winter simply because it reminds me of cooler temperature and fun autumn nights. And of course I love the pissed-off tree on the bottle.

Aromas of apples and spices, mostly ginger, and subtle cinnamon. Very pale, hay-colored. Off-dry, fruity, and mildly spicy. Light bodied and finishes clean.
