2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Iíd never tried one of these hard ciders before and decided to give ti a whirl. It pours like sparkling apple juice and smells like any other cider Iíve had. It tastes like tart apple flavored soda. it isnít bad, but it isnít really my kind of thing.

12oz bottle at Malmo Brygghus Hamnmastaren. Golden amber, not much head. Strong resin apple aroma. Big apple flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. A big tasting quality cider.

Somebody left some of these in my house, so whatever: Anyway, pours golden with no head, of course. Aroma is dry apple, with a bunch of sugar. Taste is not too sweet, which is often the biggest defect. Pretty dry and easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12floz/355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold.
Aroma: Mildly sour, tart apple. Not too much else.
Appearance: Clear golden body, no head. Very little visible effervescence.
Taste: Pretty dry. Apple-y, but very dry. Not as refreshing as the regular Angry Orchard. Not bad though.
Palate: Light-medium body. It feels heavier or thicker than regular AO. Finish is pretty short and dry. Soft, barely noticeable carbonation.
Overall: A decent cider. Straightforward with a bigger body than regular AO. The least sweet of all of AOís lineup that Iíve had. Flavor is unimposing enough that it could go with most foods.

I prefer dry ciders opposed to sweet. This one is pretty middle of the road, still a little sweet.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Clear yellow with no head, lacing, or collar - expected for the style. Decent aroma, sour, traditional. It makes you pucker, I donít know about look forward to another sip...itís dry alright. I agree with the description, the taste is bright apples. Really this is a pretty good cider as far as they go. I like it, Iím glad itís traditional like it says.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
A sugary, apple aroma on the nose ending with a tart note. The appearance is apple juice gold with minimal carbonation. Essentially still. The flavor is like watery apple juice with a green apple tartness on the end. It also has some white wine ester character. High acidity. The mouthfeel is watery with a little tannin noticeable on the end. Sugar coats my mouth on the finish. Overall, it's a poor quality cider that lacks the profile of bittersweet and bittersharp apples that are found in good examples. It is also too sweet to be called a dry cider. The green apple flavor is a fermentation flaw.
