Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Light apple, hints of lager.  Semi-malty, some sour and tangy notes.
Initial Taste: Slight bite with a malty apple flavour. Slight foamy sensation. Some acidity.
After Taste: sweet, caramel undertones come thought, not overly long-lasting.  Smooth, touch of sour apple but not a very complex drink at all.
On ice: Some sweetness reduced, but very minimal change. Thinner and less carbonation.

Additional Notes:  Manufactured alongside beer products, Molson cider has a distinctive lager taste.  An easy transition from beer to cider, this sweet, extra crisp beverage is simple and very commercial. Single strong apple flavour, smooth artificially carbonated.
