COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.

DocLock (7912) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours straw colored with fizzy carbonation and no head to speak of. Nose is crisp tart apple, earthy brown sugar and cinnamon. Tastes of ripe semi-sweet apple, cinnamon and brown sugar, and a lively crisp apply finish.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
On tap. Crisp is absolutely the wrong word for this. Pours with a clear, medium gold hued body with a white ring of foam. Aromas are sweet, sulfur, perfumey, floral, very sweet. Dryish apple character. Medium esters, a touch earthy. Light acid. Flavors are cloying apples, light pear flavor. Relatively clean yeast wise, but REALLY sweet. Some airfreshner notes. Artificial acid flavors that don’t really help the balance too much. Medium bubbles, syrupy sweet. Syrupy and soda like.

Has a bit of creeping tartness but overall this is pretty crappy hard cider.

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2012
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.

DuffMan (6865) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
bottle, shared with my wife. 24K gold colour, medium carbo, no head generation at all. Aroma is apple juice with spicy nuances and maybe just a hint of band-aid. Sweet natural apple flavour (not crisp/tart, more like regular eating apples like Cortlands), again with just hints of spice. Finish is just a little dry. Pretty good.

deyholla (6707) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear gold with a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma is full of very sweet sugary apples with only a hint of crispness. Flavor has lots of sweet apple and not much else.

j12601 (6607) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange. Immensely sweet, hard apple candies from a tin. Very sweet, not cloying, but definitely at the soda level. Lightly tart acid on the finish, but otherwise just a lot more sugared apples.

phaleslu (6606) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2012
If Boston Beer Company is trying to keep a low profile about who makes this, they aren’t 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 I’d expected. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, tart, refreshing mouthfeel. Simple, solid cider.

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours light golden with a modest white head and a light apple aroma. There is a pure cider flavor with a dry finish.

Pint on draft at Flipdaddy’s. Clear yellow orange color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Very thin white head. Leaves good lace. Good balance of apple and spice flavor. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Medium body. Tart, sweet taste, spice. Decent cider.
