Can

I had reasonably high hopes for this one, but no luck. Light pour, sulfuric, starchy aroma. On the sweet without apple intensity (not a good thing); instead some vanilla oak. Drinkable, but just.

This is technically cider, because it’s made from apples. It doesn’t really taste like cider, it tastes like mildly carbonated (cheap) chardonnay. I can drink almost anything and I don’t think I can finish this. I’m giving it a 10 overall because it’s alcohol which means it passes my most important test. Bottom line: super disappointing.

Poured from a can. Clear light yellow color, small short lived white head. Pungent grape and apple aroma. Medium body with a strong cheese favor with a light Apple undertone and a lingering cheese finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can pours a clear smokey gold with zero head. Nose has a lot of wood shavings and tons of buttery oak, bad butterscotch candies, some rotting fruit. Flavor is butterscotch, lemon juice and super buttery oak. Buttery finish. Wow, not good.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 Aroma: oak, apple (thinking the Beer Rating Assistance should be expanded to include cider descriptors - or a separate one for ciders created) Appearance: pale gold Taste: light sweetness, oak, apple Palate: light body, slick feel, soft carbonation, long finish, Decent

degbert (1589) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Can. Pours a very light gold with a white head that disappears quickly. Nose is smoke, apple peel, vanilla, and leaves. Huge amounts of vanilla, butter, and oak on the tongue; apple kicks in after, but it’s definitely out of balance. This is almost as if it was a hot buttered cider. Finish is oily, long, and buttery. The butter is so dominant that it’s hard to taste anything else. Not very good.
