Can (6.5%) from LifeSource. Light golden in color. Nose is lightly of apples. Nose seems boozy. Some spiciness and a hint of wood as well. Strong wood notes. A bit of tart apple as well. I like wood aged brew and ciders, but I think this one may be too woody. Not really scotch tasting. This does have some boozy characteristics, which is odd considering it’s abv. Pretty complex, with a lot of stuff going on, just sort of muddled.

This did remind us of a beer but is definitely a cider. This was rated by 5 beer club members.

I didn’t get much of any "scotch" flavors or aroma. The oak tasted clean, I thought I was drinking a cheap white wine. I’ll stick with the firebarrel cider.

Golden. Aroma is light apple with thin caramel booze. Sweet oak notes. Plenty of vinous and booze notes. Interesting but hard to drink more than a few ounces of.

Very clear pale golden coloured body with hints of grey and clear water. Aroma of nice pale apples, yeast, metal, oak, pears ,flowers and way more apples. Light apple flavour with some yeast, dry wood, flowers and oddly enough, oak noticeable. Aftertaste is clean but very drying with the oak and flowers front and centre with a touch of apple sweetness, but a nicely layered and still pungent cider. Overall, one of the better ciders i’ve had recently and a good option for those seeking something different from the style. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 28-December-2014 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 03-March-2015.

Can. Clear light gold pour. Aroma is mild oak and vanilla, mild honey, and apple. Taste is mildly tart, and also a bit sweet. This is okay.

Tart apple with a smoky finish. Clear appearance. Assertive yeast tastes almost Belgian. Oak gives depth and darkness, but possibly overdone. Lingering liquid smoke.

Pours a nice golden color with little foam. Oak comes through with notes of vanilla and honey. Dry and nicely balanced sweetness.

Can from Haggen’s Grocery, Woodinville
Blond color. Light aroma. The mouthfeel is a bit softer than usual, maybe sweeter in its dryness, moderate acidity, not much apple flavor, maybe some oak, and a metallic finish.
Messy.
