3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 My first reviewed cider, on-tap at the local Red Robin. Color was light gold, no head. Aroma of apples (obviously), some spices and maybe even some pear. Taste was sweet, light and stronger then the usual Woodchuck I’ve had. Pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color cider. Aroma of dry apple juice with limited other characteristics. Taste is also a dominated by quite dry cider notes with light sweet undertones. Not sure I dig this one, doesn’t really know where this is going but it is easy drinking stuff.

On tap it looks like it’s flat. It has a strong taste for a cider, much stronger than Woodchuck. It’s not bad, just needs a little toning down

Bottle. Pours light gold with zero head. Fresh red juicy apples, light caramel, and lighter hints of spices. Just a bit of carbonation. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a nice golden yellow with a nose of Fuji and Red Delicious with a slight hint of pear. Flavor is apple juice, light pear, light pineapple, and a hint of wet leaves. Average mouthfeel. I like this cider; hits on most cylinders.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with nothing sticking on top. The aroma picked up tangy apple skins with accents of oak and complementary spices. The flavor found crisp, meaty apples at the core, with tangy skins, nutmeg, and light clove around.. sweet finish with more apple and moderate, related acidity. Light-medium bodied and fairly still on the palate.. clean and tasty.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 The crisp apple overtones are fully present in the aroma and taste of this hard cider. Of all of the ciders I?ve had, this angry Orchard is the best. It is very sweet and almost cannot taste the alcohol at all. Fantastic beverage

Sampled at 2012 Indianapolis Brew Ha Ha. A pretty regular cider. Apples, alcohol, not much else. Decent but average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks Lonnie. Bottle. Deep gold colored brew with traces of a bright white head. The nose is rich apple and wood. There is also flowers and a hint of spice like cinnamon. The taste is bright and clean with lightly tart apple. There is a hint of musk and wood in the finish. Nice and not too sweet.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz twist-off bottle, blue label. Clear gold color. No head. Aroma of apple candy. Sweet and full of apple aromas. Tastes sweet with the right amount of tartness. Tastes just like supermarket apple juice. A little too sweet for my tastes, but should sell well. (Sampled side-by-side with Angry Orchard Traditional Dry)
