COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Apple Ginger cider is unlike any cider youíve had before. The fresh ginger and apple flavors blend together for a sweet, yet slightly tart taste with a distinct ginger aroma. The result is a smooth, refreshing cider that goes down easy.

From the 12oz bottle. Pours a still clear dark gold. Light notes of gingr and apple in the aroma. Clean apple and finer notes in taste. Very nice change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2014
THOUGHTS: Pretty much a mix of apple cider and ginger ale. Nice combo of flavors. Nice balance, too. TECHNICAL: Drank 5/5/2013. Bottle. Poured a light gold. The aroma had apple, ginger, ginger ale and apple juice. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was moderately acidic and lightly sweet and sour with an average duration. There was apple, apple juice, ginger ale, ginger, tart apple and hints of lemon. The light to medium body was dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a dry finish.

Bottle. Pours clear light orange with fastly dissipating head. Aroma is strong of apples, ginger, sweet, baking spices. Taste is crisp, musty, fake, light bodied. Not good, so fake tasting.

Not a big cider drinker but I like this. Subtle ginger and not too sweet. I could go for more dryness and carbonation but thatís more personal preference than anything. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

12oz bottle in a glass. Pours really light golden. Aroma of ginger, some apples, light tartness, and some sweetness. Flavor the same. Lighter texture. Too much ginger for me.

"Well balanced apple and ginger flavors. the apple pops more like the crisp apple cider, as opposed to the dry. really nice stuff (provided you like ginger) especially on the nose. Iíll be getting more of the crisp and this...canít remember the last time i said that for a cider."

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
