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.
