Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium sweet smell. Aromas of artificial candied apple. Faint pear notes noticeable.
Initial Taste: Some bite from carbonation. Very sweet and light tasting. Some brief sour notes, with some golden delicious apple hints.
After Taste: Flavour disappears quickly. Pear flavours become more obvious. Sweet notes remain in the mouth.
On ice: Loses all carbonation taste and feel on ice. Becomes much less flavourful, more like a fruit wine. Less of a flavour journey, taste is more static.

Additional Notes: A very candy-like tasting cider that is not too strong in flavour overall. If you are a fan of fruit wines or sweet ciders like Somersby, this is a good gateway cider to choose.
