Cider Crate Notes
Smell: Light, sweet musty apple aroma – more peel then flesh.
Initial Taste: Medium bite from carbonation. Strong acidic presence. Light, tangy, dry apple present with most of the flavour coming from the fermentation process.
After Taste: Becomes more dry as time passes, with some increased juicy apple notes. Some metallic elements in the aftertaste.
On ice: Carbonation is cut with slight reduction in fermentation process flavours noticable. Aftertaste dissipates quicker.
Additional Notes: A semi-dry, musty cider – with a strong presence of the fermentation process – makes this cider lean towards the craftier side of the scale. Simple, with a very natural apple flavour and strong acidic elements, the Coastline Craft Cider has similar characteristics to its Atlantic brethren.
