COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
David and Robert both love bourbon. We mean love bourbon. Maybe thatís why they didnít beat around the bush here. Sure, you can age subtly in bourbon barrels. And subtlety is sometimes enough. But, with the Anvil, the real spark ignited when we tossed nuance aside and added a healthy measure of our proprietary barrel-proof bourbon flavor. Suddenly, something intense, alive and memorable happened. To our palates, it offers a clean, lively, aromatic presence with a layered smoky finish. Itís truly integrated and rounded, yet vitally distinct. Enjoy.

brokensail (14555) - San Leandro, California, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle @ Home. Clear pale golden yellow with a light carbonation and some mild head formation. More just woody than a distinct bourbon aroma. Some apple skin, seltzer, and cheap white wine. The flavor has a bunch of caramel at first, but a ton of metallic, iron sort of flavor. Kind of rough. Some apple skins, chalk, and a bit of tart green grape.

Clear deep golden with a thin ring of rocky white foam. Lovely vanilla Apple aromas that give way to a pleasing and complex palate of crisp gala apples, vanilla, caramel, and a touch of sweet champagne grape. Nice complexity but still a bit more sweet than ciders need to be, like Woodchuck.

12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a clear & bright, golden hue, with a modest layer of white head foam that diminished quickly to a persistent ring, leaving some light spots of lacing on the glass. The nose was light spice, apple with some tartness, and subtle, caramel sweetness. A bit less than medium bodied, the texture seemed to thin a bit as the flavor lost some of the tartness, with only mild carbonation, and no noticeable bourbony presence, but started to show a little butter with the caramel as it warmed. The bourbon idea initially intrigued me, but altogether, was a little disappointed, and found this hard to finish.

Bottle - Light sweetness with a touch of apple. Clear gold. Light sweetness and a touch of apple and a touch of funk.

mcberko (11172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of bourbonized apples -- but very weak and cheap tasting. Flavour is not too bad, with notes of bourbon and weak lightly sweetened apples. Very cheap and simplistic, but clean and drinkable. Not terrible, but lacking complexity. Alright.

On tap at Food, Wine & Co. Nice golden body with tiny head. Nose is fruits, especially apple with brown sugar. I guess it is bourbon. Taste sweet and some bourbon notes. Verz oily texture. Okay.

robertjm (830) - Albany, California, USA - SEP 27, 2015
No real head. Golden orange body with a handful of bubbles in the glass. Let get aroma. Apple flavor muted by the bourbon barrels. Almost a dry finish. Was recommended by the girl at Whole Foods Gilman. But, Iím not really digging it.

This guy named Scott shared this with me, he knows Iím a bit of a cider hound. Now he didnít quite say that of course, he isnít much of a joker like I am, but heís a good guy and he loves cats so heís cool. Crummy cider- dirty socks dipped in bourbon would be my vote. Now, back to Scott...,
