3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep golden yellow with no head. It has a sweet aroma of apples mixed with ginger. The taste is, similarly, buttery apples with ginger in the mix. The ginger is ever-present, and borders on being too strong without crossing the line. Very good for a somewhat non-traditional cider, better than some plain ciders.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear dark yellow. Aroma is apple, less overt and less candied than usual for a macro cider, but spiciness is very subtle. The ginger is stronger on the taste, where it balances the apple well, though the finger flavor itself seems simple. Refreshing enough.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Apples and mild ginger in the nose. Yellow and clear. Fresh juice and mild ginger, in a mildly unpleasant way. Light an crisp. Overall and fairly bland offering.

Quite fine and good. Delicious to drink while enjoying after a hot day. Sweet and spiced too.

Bottle shared with friends at a 2106 New Year’s Party. Not a fan of this fad, and this one was not one of the better ones. Ginger and I don’t usually get along.

12oz bottle. Poured like a cider. Yep, apples with ginger. I’m not crazy about ginger in my liquids and it is here.

12 oz bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear light golden color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, bigger ginger, hints of spice, maybe not as sweet as some ciders, but I am not a fan of ginger.

Still not sure how to rate or judge ciders. Maybe had close to 2 dozen different ones, but only rated a few so far. The flavor profile interested me, but didn’t quite work the way I expected. Ginger is pretty mild and still tasted mostly of sweet apple. Decent and refreshing, but haven’t had an Angry Orchard yet that really stood out.

Rated based on notes taken 15 July 2012 -- Ciders from Angry Orchard usually leave me all, meh.
