Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Medium-Strong apple, quite acidic, tart.
Initial Taste: Medium bite, some english apple taste, hints of fermentaion, partially sweet
After Taste: Mild and light, not a lot of taste. Much like an apple juice
On ice: Looses some flavour and bite, carbination is cut

Additional Notes: A simple cider, single apple flavoured and smooth, Samuael Smiths Organic offers a hint of a UK cider, without the harsher elements typically found with a british style.  This is most lkely because of the fermentation process which uses apple juice not crushed apples.
