MicroGrog (387) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2017
12oz Newcastle-esque shaped bottle from a 7-11 in downtown Boston. Poured into a rounded pint glass.
Big, balloon-y, quick hitting, mellow white head. Clear, light copper, spirited body.
Smell is strong in corn... Something like cotton candy. Something vaguely leathery. Butterscotch. Sharp apples. Bananas Foster.
Taste is thankfully a little cleaner. Boozy butterscotch & bourbon likeness upfront, with sharp, determined apples bringing up the rear. Buttery... Something tastes fake, but I can't quite tell.
So-so carbonation just makes it even more difficult. Ugh. cmacklin (1244) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a thin, short lived, white head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of apples, bourbon and oak. Sweet flavour of apples, caramel, vanilla and oak with light bourbon in a dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation. Just ok, I thought this would be better. svandyke (257) - USA - NOV 10, 2016
Bomber from Tiffany’s- Nice golden color with reddish hints. Not much fizz. Leathery mustiness before a hint of appley cider notes. Sour, vinegary initial flavor with the spike of bourbon at the end. Not too pleasing, oily feel to the mouth. mjg74 (3141) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Bottle from World Market. Decent cider. Mild sweetness with a bit of a creamy flavor in the finish. Not a bad sipper, but I really don’t get the bourbon. Not bad, seems to be well balanced for a cider. obguthr (6534) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Apple, ivory soap, bourbon aroma. Clear amber, actually formed a head which I find unusual for a cider. Overripe apples, soapy overtones. Light body, easy carbonation. Not slick or oily, but flavor and aroma are distinctly of some kind of soap.

Bottle, thanks to Misterburd. Clear amber with frothy off-white small head, faint bourbon aroma, fizzy carbonation, lightly sweet taste, thin body, dry finish. Quite crisp and dry, bourbon flavor was not very noticeable. unclemike (3160) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 22, 2016
golden with small head. i thought i would like this the best of the three varieties, and was saving it for last, but it’s rather underwhelming and definitely in third place. average cider with light bourbon. thin. Fatehunter (2584) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Pours a clear dark straw body with lots of bubbles.
The aroma is caramel, apples and wood.
The taste is smoke, caramel and apples.
The texture is crisp.
The bourbon flavor is a nice addition. charule (2277) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2016
