2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Out of my element with ciders, but rating will help that, right? Clear golden color, head drops off immediately. Aroma is tart (reminiscent of granny smith), some vinegar as well. Bread, yeasty over-risen rolls. Taste is mildly sweet with cinnamon and a dry, bready vinegar finish. Soft carbonation, light body, slick texture. Overall: not a big fan of this, really, but fun to try rating something other than beer from time to time. No idea if my baseline is reasonable on this.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Aroma of apples and vinegar. Tart and dry, not very sweet, but just a touch of sugars. Apple is the flavor which is what it has to be. Very crisp palate. Not bad.

Noticeably bittersweet and crisp, likely causing you to pucker with each sip. I personally found it delightful and very drinkable, though itíd probably be best had for certain occasions and with specific foods.

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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
