Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Faint to medium, sweet apple with hints of wine and citrus aromas.
Initial Taste: Small bite. Sweet apple with a citrus undertone.
After Taste: Mild sour undertones with a tangy fleshy apple aftertaste that stays for a while.
On ice:  Flavour and carbonation bite is cut on ice. Easier to drink.  Slightly more candied.

Additional Notes: A very pub-oriented and approachable cider, Flying Canoe is tangy and crisp to enjoy. Juicy apple flavour drive the cider from start to finish, with a hint of tannins.  With subtle notes of citrus (sweet orange), this unique cider does not taste very alcoholic but still manages to warm the core.
