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…
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.
