Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium, sweet apple some floral notes
Initial Taste: light bite from carbonation, sweet apple with medium berry notes. Some tanginess upfront that dissipates

On ice: Reduced carbonation, less sweet

Additional Notes: This non-alcoholic offering called Mayador – Sidra Asturiana comes from Spain but is also sold in the dollar store chain in Canada.  For a 35% apple juice, it’s got a lot of elements and could pass as real apples, with an almost age to them. It’s quite flavourful, not as sweet as some actual ciders and is a nice offering for the price point in all honesty.
