Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Mild sweet apple
Initial Taste: Minimal to no bite – smooth. Semi-sour, tart single-variety apple. Hints of copper flavour.
After Taste: Apple flavour remains. Some bitter notes. Flavour dissipates quickly. Dry, lager beer-like finish.
On ice: Carbonation cut and flavour reduced/watered down.

Additional Notes: Strongbow Original Dry is a smooth cider that has a static taste journey. With a single-apple flavour, it is slightly tart and sour. It has a frothy beer-like taste so this would be a good starter cider for a beer fan. Has a very cozy pub feel and taste to it.
