Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium slightly sweet, slightly musty medley of apple aromas.
Initial Taste: No bite, very smooth. Quite sweet on the palate. Fleshy apply taste.
After Taste: Sweetness continues. Mild fermentation notes. Mildly tart. Some tonic water notes.
On ice: Cuts carbonation. Apple flavour in the initial taste is similar but it cuts it in the aftertaste.

Additional Notes: One of the most defining characteristics of Stutz Cider is how clean tasting and feeling the cider is from start to finish. This is a very mild cider overall and would be enjoyed by most cider drinkers. This cider is sweet but not artificially so and does not leave a sugary residue in the mouth. A very crisp, refreshing cider that would quench thrust – just as the can promises.
