Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium, sweet apple juice – with some fermentation and malty notes.
Initial Taste: medium-mild bite from acidity and carbonation. Single, sweet fleshy-apple taste.
After Taste: distinct notes from both skin and flesh of the apple are noticable  Not an overly long aftertaste. Has a bit of natural sugar taste.
On ice: Carbonation is cut dramatically, flavour is reduced.  Some additional tastes come forth and remain longer in the mouth.  Maybe hints of caramelized apple.

Additional Notes:  A simple cider – not overly commercial but also not a craft drink. Growers 1927 offers a clean, single apple flavour taste that is in the realm of a ‘classic cider’.
