12-oz bottle. Medium yellow pour, no head. Aroma is sweet apple, but typically cider in that itís not very noticeable. Palate is lots of green apple. Very tart and not watery at all. Carbonation is medium to high. A lot of apple packed into this - possibly my favorite cider yet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
If Boston Beer Company is trying to keep a low profile about who makes this, they arenít doing a good job- I saw it at two bars in a row in Cincinnati with the name "Sam Adams Angry Orchard Crisp" on the chalkboard. Anyway, it pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Fresh sweet and tart apples on the nose, pretty crisp. Same for the flavor, which had more tartness than Iíd expected. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, tart, refreshing mouthfeel. Simple, solid cider.

Simple yet very nice cider. Bright Orange body, clear, small dizzy head that dies quickly. Fresh apples on the nose, with a mild tart apple scent. Flavor is similar - bright fresh apples, slightly sweet apples which is kept from being overwhelming by a mild tart Apple and nice carbonation. Simple yet very drinkable.
