2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brief write-up. Pours a light straw color. The aroma is pretty much sweet apple, with only mild hints of ginger and cinnamon. Flavors are one note, mainly just apple and sweetness - only a hint of ginger appears on the back end, and I don’t fully enjoy its presence. Light on the palate; no dryness, but I didn’t expect any. From what I remember, their Crisp Apple is better. I’d drink it over BMC any day though.

Bottle. Pours a sparkling golden color. Aroma is sweet apple with just a bit of ginger. Mostly sweet with a bit of ginger heat in the finish. Not too shabby.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lovely and appetizing clear golden - no head, but this is a cider. Aroma reaches out and touches you from half a meter away, luring your mouth with crisp, fresh apple that has a ginger undertone. Apple and ginger marry nicely in the refreshing and pleasing flavor. Texture is firm and rather fizzy, good for a cider. Get angry, get over it, and get gingered!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 4-08-2013 (Bottle) This cider’s appearance is a very small off-white head with a short retention, transparent yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is apples, ginger and sweet. The flavor is sweet, apples, light ginger, and tart. The mouthfeel is very dry and this cider is light-medium bodied. Overall, I am not a fan of this cider as I am not a fan of ginger.

Bottle into pint glass, clear pale golden color with minimal white lacing. Aroma of apple and ginger spices. Taste adds some faint citrus. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, dry with apple spice finish. Easy drinking ginger cider.

Looks good. Smells good. But still my least favorite Angry Orchard cider so far. Too much vineagar mouth feel.gets more sour as we reach the bottom of the glass.

This cider is a light golden color. The ginger come through strongly in the aroma and mildly in the flavor as a sort of spicy bite which balances the little bit of sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, strong ginger aroma. Taste is apple and a crap load of spices. Kinda reminds me of an overspiced pumpkin beer. The ginger overpowers it a bit. It’s an interesting concept, and I’m glad that the Sam Adams cider people are doing it, but it isn’t for me.
