- My Rating: C+
East Kelowna Ross Hard Apple Cider, 6% ABV – 1L, (Kelowna, BC, Canada)
-comes in a plastic bottle, ’nuff said
- Style: Apple Cider
- Taste Profile: dense red apple -> alcohol/filtered apple juice/tang -> off-dry/light acidic finish
- Where I got it : W.16th
- How much: ~$8 (after 10% off), sometime 2011
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to cider aficionados: no way
Tasting notes: pours medium golden yellow with no head whatsoever (sadly) and almost no CO2 action. Strong apple juice aroma on the nose.
Attack: dense filtered apple flavour
Mid-palate: alcohol, 6/10-sweetness that dissipates, more filtered apple juice (like Sun-Rype), tangy
Finish: cuts off-dry, light-medium acidity, finishing with hints of lime.
The flavour isn’t awful but the carbonation could use a little more jazz.
