Medium that goes flat quickly.  Lots of head


Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Extra sweet apple juice with a hint of beer.
Initial Taste:  Light bite with strong fizzy carbonation with notes of light beer.  Smells sweeter and with more apple taste then it actually haspe
After Taste: Beer flavour returns to an apple juice flavour with a long-lasting taste in the mouth that is a little filmy.
On ice: Smoother, more of a beer taste on ice.  A touch sweeter due to lack of carbonation.

Additional Notes:  As an alternative to a cider, this could be a pretty easy gateway from beer.  Cider drinkers may find it a nice change of pace. obvious beer base, it does not have an overly heavy malty or hoppy taste.  It does contain a light apple taste that has very little depth or character.
