3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Fresh apple and candied ginger aroma. Clear pale yellow. Sweet / tart apple and slightly spicy ginger flavor. Light crisp body, on the sweet side of dry. I’m a huge ginger fan, so I dug this in a big way.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with krista and kristen. Clear very pale yellow pour with no head. Ginger on the nose and flavor, but the underlying bitter/crisp apple shows through. Its kinda like a honey sweetness, but with a drying white grape skins. Floral as well. Kinda acidic on the palate, with ginger undertones. Glad they are trying new stuff, but this didn’t really do it for me. The angry orchard version was better than this.

12n ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a thin frothy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of sweet apples and faint ginger. The taste is strong ginger with a grainy apple finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of bottle at Art and Ale, clear orange with white head, aroma brought notes of garbage and baby diaper, I kid you not, some slight ginger, apple comes in but its very odd and not appealing. Taste is much better, some nice snappy ginger with hints of apple and caramel, finishing fairly sweet.

It’s a cider. It has ginger notes...which is a good combo with apple. Wish there was more to say...nothing groundbreaking or exceptional but nicely drinkable. Seems a little higher in ABV than most ciders I have had.
Added plus...I’m drinking my son’s stash...nice :)

Nose is rather medicinal. Mouth feel is denser than most ciders. Higher alcohol is not noticeable. Nice blend of two old-time traditions, ginger beer and cider. Substantial and refreshing. I’m not one to have cider with ice, but this one has enough flavor and body to stand up to that.
