THOUGHTS: Very nice and fairly dry. Lots of apple flavor that seemed very natural and not at all artificial. Nice balance between sweet and tart. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a sparkling, clear, light, golden with beautiful carbonation and a small, white head that pretty much fully diminished and left surprisingly fair lacing. The aroma had apple, apple desserts, apple juice, apple skins, and a little spice. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and acidic, and light to moderately sour; while the finish was lightly acidic and moderate to heavily sour, but in a tart way with a duration that was average on flavor and long on dryness. There was apple juice, apples, apple desserts, a little spice, apple skin and apple cobbler. The light body was dry with fizzy carbonation a dry and lightly asrtingent finsh.

12oz bottle. Poured like a cider. Tasted like a cider - apples. A bit different than some other ciders ... guess it is the dryness and/or this is an older bottle.

An obviously drier cider, it has a more wine-like taste to it, like Sauvignon. Another decent cider.

12oz bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a small fizzy white head. Quickly dissipating. Aroma is pleasant apple cider notes. Not super sweet smelling. Flavor is okay - sweet, slightly dry finish to this one. Decent in the cider category.

Smells like vinegar, tastes like vinegar with a hint of apples. I can’t find a date anywhere on the bottles, but I’m guessing I got an old six pack.

frankenkitty (1990) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Golden bodied, light carbonation, fast head. Sweet, crisp apple aroma and flavor, with a tart, dry finish. To be honest, this would be exactly what I would expect sitting down at any pub and asking for a "cider". No bells and whistles, just a really good cider that is quickly quaffed down without having to think about it too hard. ~~~~~~~~ 6x12 oz., Kenwood Liquors, Oak Lawn, IL.

Like seriously for the price Angry Orchard is a decent cider for a party, nice that its a bit dryer than some of their others, but otherwise its mostly sweet.

(draft @ TGI Friday’s - Greece, NY) Clear gold with a fizzy white head. Strong apple aroma with the lightest sweet hint. Flavor is dry but lightly sweet at the end. Smooth and tart with sweetness at the end.

bozoNZ (750) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 26, 2015
Sort of a urine golden. Very low carbonation and low aroma too. A little stewed apples that’s about it. Mid weight flavours with a touch drying pucker finish. Ok

12 oz. bottle. Clear piss color without any head. Aroma is fresh cut apples and old home brewer’s yeast after it sat in the slap pack to long. Apple juice, bready malt, weak yeast. The finish really isn’t as dry as it would lead you to believe. Not bad put the nose with the yeast is a bit off putting.

Bottle at home. Pours golden yellow with no head. Aroma is tart apples. Flavor follows. Fairly dry cider. Meh.
