Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Mild-to-medium sweet fleshy apple smell.
Initial Taste: No bite, strong fleshy-apple taste. Very sweet but not sugary (like a honey-crisp typically is).
After Taste: Fruit flavours from the honey crisp apples linger, but only for a short time.  Has an apple juice finish.  Light bodied with a single flavour of apple and a touch of tangyness. Candied lemon hints.
On ice: Very little difference – a slight bit tangier.

Additional Notes:  A creamy cider that has a strong fleshy taste, Growers Honey Crisp offers a clean tasting sweet but not overly sugary modern drink.  True to a fruit cider, a little bit more of a traditional cider offering than the typical commercial take from Growers.
