Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Light, sweet, fresh apple juice.
Initial Taste:  Minimal bite, extra sweet with a hint of sour. Very little alcoholic taste/elements.
After Taste: Moves to a bit of tangy, syrup taste. Stays a bit in the back of the pallet, however quite light.  A hint of a malty aftertaste.
On ice:  Cuts a lot of flavour, carbonation and tiny out of the drink.

Additional Notes:  A very light, candied, green apple flavour.  A sweet, smooth drink that reminds you of a carbonated apple juice.  Not a lot of depth, but an easy to drink, commercial-oriented cider.
