Seattle Cider Co. Three Pepper Hard Cider.
Clear, bright gold, no head.
Aroma: pepper heat, some fruit beneath?
In the mouth: Hot! Hot! Hot! And cider. Okay, I know me, and knowing me, maybe you know me. I don't do pepper heat very well. Don't like it, don't want it, don't need it. Why would you introduce it to a cider? And there is cider below that pepper heat, and it can't do what cider does best with that bothersome flavor above it.
I like to try every beverage put before me (sorta), but now I'm going, "who thought this was a good idea?"
It's okay, I guess, and the heat mellows some, but I have to wonder if this was designed with masochists in mind.
