Beer Review #3: Angry Orchard Hard Cider – Crisp Apple

07 Dec

From the Angry Orchard website: “A crisp and refreshing cider, its fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make it hard to resist.”

I’ve had more of these than I can count! This is the 2nd best cider I’ve ever had. Its not terribly strong, but its amazingly flavorful and has a wonderful golden color. The Crisp Apple is, as the name implies, quite crisp. It has a clean, sweet (but not overly so) flavor that finishes smooth as a baby’s ass. (On a side note, why are babies asses the standard measure of smoothness? Something seems wrong about that.) Crisp Apple is used in some what I believe is called a beer cocktail. If I’ve watched the bartenders correctly, you add 1/4 of a pint of this to 3/4 of a pint of Harpoon Winter Warmer and you get an Apple Pie. This concoction is pretty much exactly like drinking a delicious apple pie and its one of my favorite winter beers/drinks. Even if you never get to try an Apple Pie (and if you get a chance, I strongly recommend you do!), this is a fantastic cider that’s not only great in the fall/winter, but is also available year round!

5% ABV

I’ll let this man have the final word:

Angry Orchard
