Boston Beer Co is rolling out the Green Apple variant of its Angry Orchard hard cider brand across the US. 

The 5% abv variant, first given a limited release last September, will hit shelves nationwide this week, the company said today (4 March). The cider is described as having "a tart and bright character like a fresh green apple" and is the first year-round style of Angry Orchard hard cider made with American apples.

Boston Beer Co, famous for its Samuel Adams lager, launched the Angry Orchard brand in 2012 and is now the US' leading hard cider brand in the fast-growing category, according to IRI figures.
