Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell:  Faint sweet apple smell
Initial Taste: Mild and smooth light apple flavour, semi-sweet.
After Taste: more pear-focused flavour develops. A very weird, malty and almost metallic flavour develops and lingers develops after the pear flavour emerges.
On ice: Carbonation and taste weaken on ice. Becomes less sweet and flavourful. Pear taste is more prevalent.

Additional Notes: An artificial, lower-grade cider that seems to have been designed to appeal to younger people. Has a very bizarre aftertaste that develops that is hard to describe beyond it being malty.
