COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A return to our original small batch, hand crafted process from 1927, the year The Growers Cider Co. was established in Saanich, BC. This dry premium cider is naturally fermented with a refreshing crisp fruit taste.

2012-08-10. Crisp pale yellow, tiny white froth. Mild aroma, light sweet fruity apple, mild alcohol and muted musty notes. Flavour is fairly sweet, fruity apple, apple juice, light notes of apple skins and must, very lightly tart around the edges keeps it from becoming cloying. Notes of a sweeter Granny Smith and Macintosh like apple flavours as it warms up Very light apple seed like astringency in the finish. Average to light bodied palate is pleasantly effervescent. Fairly simple but rather pleasant take on mainstream cider. Can from LCBO, Toronto

DuffMan (6554) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Can. Another cider enjoyed on the beaches of P.E.I. Pale and sparkling with yellow-green highlights. Zippy fresh apple aroma, a little musty. Nice natural apple flavor, a little sweet for my preference, but the apple flavor is big and genuine and the finish is dry. Enjoyable.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Can 473 ml
Aroma muted , mild aroma, faint hint of apple.
Appearance poured rather pale shade of gold with minimal top.
Flavor and Palate : Light bodied, watery even for cider. Dry carbonation sits in the middle. Slight echo of apple fruit. At least it was refreshing

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
March 21, 2012 with blankboy and garthicus. 473ml can c/o blankboy. Very pale clear yellow, nice bubbling, minimal white head (3-). Smells nice enough, alcohol, dry off-dry white wine and generic apple. Taste follows, less wine and more apple character, sweet but not too much so. Light body, decent carbonation, a little acidity to it but it disappears a little fast and ultimately feels a tad watery.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
My can [473ml] shared with garthicus & HogTownHarry. March 21. Pours a hazy, very pale yellow-gold with no head. Pleasant tart apple aroma, not much else, simple but nice. Flavour’s the same, simple but pleasant dry apple taste, a touch watery though. Average bodied. Good stuff, a nice surprise.

[4642-20120810] 341mL can. Sparkling apple juice aroma. Clear, bright light yellow body with no lasting head. Flavour starts apple-y then dries a little into a nice champagne bubbly with a light tart Jolly Rancher pick-me-up at the end. Light body. Really interesting progression. (6/2+/7/3/14) 3.2

473ml can caught my eye at the lcbo. Incredible aroma of freash, tart, bright, granny smith/mcintosh apples. Flavor is incredibly fresh, just like biting into a crisp apple. Dry sweet finish. Im quite impressed.

Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: Very light yellow, good visible carbonation. No head. Aroma: Quite a sharp apple aroma, pear, quite sweet. Flavour: Dry and sharp, decent apple flavour, a little vineous notes, decent sweet dry finish. Not bad.
