Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell:  Mild cherry aroma, similar to maraschino cherry. Somewhat medicinal smelling.
Initial Taste:  Fizzy with a syrupy feel and taste, like a cherry cough syrup.
After Taste: Partly tart, partly sweet lingering tasting. It becomes more-dry in the mouth. Artificial cherry flavours very obvious.
On ice: Less fizzy, more smooth. Takes away some of the sugary/sweet taste.

Additional Notes: A very artificial tasting beverage; its more like a cooler than a cider. Somewhat sugary/gritty in the mouth, and it reminds us a lot of the cherry lozenges used to treat sore throats.
