Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium, sweet apple juice – with some fermentation and malty notes.
Initial Taste: medium-mild bite from acidity and carbonation. Single, sweet fleshy-apple taste.
After Taste: distinct notes from both skin and flesh of the apple are noticable  Not an overly long aftertaste. Has a bit of natural sugar taste.
On ice: Carbonation is cut dramatically, flavour is reduced.  Some additional tastes come forth and remain longer in the mouth.  Maybe hints of caramelized apple.

Additional Notes:  A simple cider – not overly commercial but also not a craft drink. Growers 1927 offers a clean, single apple flavour taste that is in the realm of a ‘classic cider’.

    I have been drinking 1927 for 7 years now after Black Thorn and Sir Perry pear cider. These are no longer available. I find the taste of Strongbow quite watery and unappealing . That’s why when I first tasted 1927 it was like nectar; clean, crisp refreshing and a beautiful flavour. The after taste is pleasant on the palate and leaves one to crave more. I cannot even drink beer anymore as now it tastes horrible. Growers could sell this product in any province or state with ease. All the store managers I know (lots) have told me that 1927 is one of their best sellers. Wish the government would reduce taxes to make it more affordable. P.S. The other locally produced ciders are far inferior to 1927. Thanks.
