Cigar City Cider and Mead Hard Cider
Sample @ Charleston Brewvival 2015. Gold pour with a small bubbly white head. Nose is fairly clean. Mellow apple and pear. Just a bit of lemon peel. Flavor is on the sweeter end of the spectrum. Oily, sweet apple. A bit earthy. Spritzy carb. OK.

Cigar City Cider and Mead Fight the Power Sour Apple Cider
On tap @ District Tap House. This is a near clear looking golden one. No head to talk about really. This smells seriously nice. Superb apply with traces of vanilla and sour pears. It smells really really good this. Fresh and really inviting. Was expecting something really sour but this is really balanced between the sweet apply and the mild acidic. Nice and oily in the mouth and itís just below average on the carbonation. Apply of course, tartish but also really sweet in a way. Red apples and traces of plum. Really good one! 13.06.2015

Cigar City Cider and Mead In a Headlock - Bourbon Barrel Aged
500 mL bottle shared by Gus. The pour is a crystal clear golden Amber color with no head and no lace. It looks pretty good. The aroma is intense. There is a light maple and a big time sweetness with this. The bourbon comes brought and the barrel offers a nice vanilla and oakiness. There is a little bourbon booze to it, but itís nice. The flavor is just as intense. Lots of maple sweetness and honey right out of the gate. The bourbon offers a nice charred sweetness and a light vanilla. The finish is crisp and light. The mouth feel is thin and slick. There isnít any carbonation to help, so thatís a bummer. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet maple with a hint of bourbon and a light boozy vanilla.
