Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium aroma. Sharp, caramelized apples, slightly pulpy.
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation. Quick caramelized and clean apple flavour. Mild crab-apple flavour.
After Taste: Apple flavour continues the same and lingers. Ends semi-sweet. Mild honey notes.
On ice: Elements are slightly diminished but not much difference.

Additional Notes: Front Road Cellars’ Lakeside Hard Cider is an extra clean, sessionable cider that features a strong and rich caramelized apple flavour, without any unwanted fermentation notes. With a flavour journey that remains almost the same from start to finish, it’s tangy and definably crisp, apple forward –  it is not messing around with other distracting elements.
