2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this cider poured a very pale straw yellow with a medium sized foamy white head that faded very quickly and left only a trace of lacing. The aroma was strong cinnamon sugar, apple juice and more cinnamon. The flavor was sweet cinnamon sugar, apple juice and more cinnamon. Medium length finish. Medium body. The spice really overwhelms. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, twist-off. Nose is apple with Cinnabon-type sugar and cinnamon, and I don’t think they mesh well. Pale clear yellow body with absolutely no head, almost no carbonation. Taste is a sweet and mostly apple but cinnamon plays at maybe 60% strength, and the match is much better here. Tart with no bitterness. Medium body essentially clean and somewhat refreshing even for its stillness. Biggest negative here is how this doesn’t taste natural, a hard one to overcome.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear straw gold body with a minimal fizzy white head that quickly disappeared. The nose is like something I’d expect from a Yankee Candle variety. There’s lots of cinnamon, with a lesser note of apple skins and juice. The flavor is very spicy with the cinnamon, it actually works pretty well with the slightly sweet caramel and the little bit of astringency from the skins though. It tastes pretty good for the first half of the bottle, but it does get a bit tiring after a while. Light bodied with a slight clinginess and fizzy carbonation. Meh, this is one of the least favorite of the flavored ciders from Angry Orchard that I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear straw gold pour with a thin white head that is sustained, somewhat, by a high effervescence. Aroma of hot, earthy cinnamon, a little sweet apple... really just smells like a cinnamon spice candied apple. Flavor is similar, but much more like cinnamon stick in nice, slightly tart cider with a toasty hint thrown in for good measure. Light body, slightly syrupy, slightly juicy feel throughout with a light, blanketing and fairly soft carbonation, with a dry, mineral feel to the finish. I really liked this stuff overall. A nice cold weather, cold drink, though I think it might be okay warm, although as it warms it smells and tastes a bit more messy and hot, so maybe not.

smells and tastes like a jolly rancher. glad sorority girls have something to drink and all, but this stuff should be ashamed to call itself cider.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of apples and cinnamon. Taste was spicy apple just kind of funky and not in a good way for me.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a golden color with minimal carbonation. It has a very nice cinnamon aroma with apple. It has a very nice tart apple taste with cinnamon in the aftertaste. This is my first angry orchard cider and I like it. Another wonderful drink from this brewery.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Pours a clear, light yellow appearance with no head. Kind of bland, light cinnamon red hot, mild pear/apple, light veggie, somewhat spicy aroma. Kind of juicy flavor but more like apple sauce with cinnamon and vanilla. There’s a weird twangy note that I can’t quite put my finger on, maybe wet noodles. Probably my least favorite cider from these guys but it is drinkable.
