Angry Orchard Apple Ginger

Posted: July 2, 2012 in Boston Beer Company, Cider, Reviews

So now that I’ve updated all of my backlogged reviews, what is there left to do but bang out some more reviews. I have a full beer fridge, so I grabbed the oldest thing in there. I actually tried this cider for the first time at the Atlantic City beer festival and really enjoyed them. I ended up buying a six-pack for Kate and stowed one away for a review…

ABV: 5%

Style: Cider

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our Apple Ginger cider is unlike any other cider. The addition of Nigerian ginger flavor adds a spiciness and warmth to the cider. The fresh ginger and apple flavors blend together for a sweet, yet slightly tart taste with a distinct ginger aroma. The result is a smooth, refreshing, slightly sweet cider with a subtle dry, yet complex, warming finish from the ginger.”

Random: I had absolutely no idea that this was a line from the Boston Beer Company (a.k.a. Samuel Adams). It explains why I like it so much…

This cider poured with a thin, white head that dissipated very quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear amber color with lots of active carbonation throughout. The nose was incredibly fragrant with fresh apples and a hint of ginger. The taste was just splendid. There was an abundance of fresh apples and the ginger was subtle, but added a unique characteristic to it. The body was light with a lot of carbonation on it. The finish was long with apples. This is a cider that I could drink all day long. It was refreshing, filled with flavor and not too sweet. Absolutely wonderful. Get this one now.
