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 AO’s lineup that I’ve 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 don’t know about look forward to another sip...it’s 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, I’m glad it’s 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.

Bottle at home. Clear light golden color, some white bubbles. Aroma is dry apple and some other fruits. Rich apple taste, sour notes, little sour and dry finish. Not bad at all.

0.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Another headless yellow drink with the aroma of apples. Taste is very sour. Tastes like green apples but with an entense sourness that just makes it awful. Got two more bottles of this in the fridge. Will have to find a dish I can make using them because I am sure not going to drink them.

Pours a crisp golden yellow with fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Sweet apple and sugar aroma. Sweet apple flavor. Light body and medium carbonation. Sweet, dry finish.

Poors a nice gold color. Smells of apples. Retty dry in taste, apple flavor doesn’t last too long.
