Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Mild aroma. Semi-sweet. Bright apples with slight sulphur notes.
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation. Smooth, creamy, fleshy and pulpy apple notes. Clean with some brightness. Some bitter notes and some fermentation aspects.
After Taste: Apple drops out and becomes a little more like a crisp lager in taste.  More bitter and fermentation notes enter and it lingers a long time with a slight sulphur finish.
On ice: Little changes. Slightly less apple.

Additional Notes:  The Argyle Apple Cider by Walkerville City Cidery /Brewery is a medium bodied, apple forward offering that’s pretty clean but has a bit of sulphur and fermentation notes in the end.  It drinks a lot like a crisp lager and a standard pub cider, which makes sense with the brewery background.  Not too sweet, with a bit of peel and fleshy notes, its a  middle of the road cider all around, which isn’t a bad thing!
