3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Apple, dandelion, and pronounced oak nose, buttery on the edges. Clear yellow, still. Pear and apple, dandelion flavor. Not a lot of oak on the palate, but not lacking in complexity. A truly excellent cider. Iím really liking what Iíve seen from this cidery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Much lighter in color than the regular cider... Light oakiness reminds more of "oak" planks in woodworking than vanilla or butterscotch from barrel aging... Not getting anything "Scotch" related... a light buttery apple essence.. some diacetyl is present but not as high as their standard hard cider.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pale yellow with lots of fine carbonation. Over ripe apples, caramel, vanilla and oak. Taste is a blend of sweet, tart and dry, all balanced and not too strong. Body is light and fizzy. Decent cider, but it seemed like the sweet onset took away from some of the oakiness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can pours a clear golden with no head. Boozy sweet vanilla oak aroma, sweet apples. Sweet apples with slight chemical alcohol. The oak aging doesnít do this any favors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Pours a straw yellow color with a fizzy white head that leaves thin bubbly lacing. Smells of sweet apples, oak, cloves, and cinnamon. Tastes of the same things in the smell with slight smoky and scotch flavor in the back end also. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with good carbonation. This was exactly as described. Very good for an oak aged cider. I thought the apples used might be over ripe though. Would like to have this on tap somewhere.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from world beers. Pours a very light blonde. Scent of cider (surprise). Taste is nice and dry. Almost like a white wine. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. 2.49$. Pours a clear golden color with a bubbly body. A sweet sugary nose, some super ripe apples. More sweetness in the flavor, really ripe, almost way too much, the back sweetening is big here, maybe some oak, but not a ton. Fleshy, oddly metallic. Hmmm. This is not a terrible cider, it finishes quite dry and more oak in the tail.

Always in search of that cider thatís going to knock my socks off. This one came close being pleasantly boozy in the body, sweet in the middle, and oaky dry towards the finish. Pretty good stuff!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Pours clear straw-gold with a ring of white bubbles. Aroma is alcohol - whoa alcohol. Once acclimated to that aromas of a backyard BBQ come through. Taste: moderately sweet, with vanilla and brown sugar mingling with the BBQ and booze. Finish is short, mostly dry with some lingering sweetness. Medium body, slick coating mouthfeel, lovely fine bubbled carbonation. Overall: donít know much about ciders, but this was very pleasant, and the BBQ adds some uniqueness to it.

12 oz can. Aroma is really oaky + apples. Hazy golden pour with minimal white head. Tasty, but nothing Iíd buy.
