COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Molson Canadian Cider is made from the highest quality ingredients available including apples that are 100% Canadian grown. The traditional English style cider has a bold apple flavour, with a balanced medium sweetness and medium acidity from the natural tannins, sugars, and malic acids provided by the fruit. The result is a crisp, sharp, refreshing taste that finishes incredibly smooth.

Can. Light gold, ginger ale-like carbo. Juicy apple aroma and flavour, jacked by massive sugary sweetness. Way too sweet for me.

Beautiful served over ice in a chilled Mason jar. Not overly excited about the cider overall but if cider is your thing highly recommended this drink.

This is a light and sweet cider. Its carbonation is weak, however has a wonderful aroma. Its 5% alcohol is hidden behind the apple flavour and is barely noticeable. Refreshing in a hot day server over ice.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle and Can samples- Deep gold with almost amber hues. A quick lived fizzy head. Apple nose has a bit of spice and biscuit like malt characters. Very sweet and appley, a bit of tartness or bitterness follows. Sweet finish. Seems natural enough but it is a bit light on the end and perhaps a bit over carbonated.

Sweet aroma of apple, yeast, biscuit, and lemon. Clear straw colour. Quite sweet with flavour of apple and brown sugar. Mild body with lively carbonation. A bit too sweet, but otherwise pleasant.

473ml can. Pale yellow in colour, crystal clear and pretty near headless, a lot of carbonation bubbles noisily fizzing away in the glass. Nose has medium sweet apples. Taste is semi dry apple, surprisingly not too sweet or fake tasting. Better than expected, decently refreshing for a mainstream cider.

A nice cider. A little on the sweet side but very, very drinkable. I was surprised by how nice it tasted. I wish it was sold locally.

pours clear light yellow with a small cap, medium-sized bubbles surfacing. decent amount of red apples, very light acidity, yeast-free, white grapes notes, hint of spices. average carbonation, light body, semi-sweet finish. ok - in this case meaning more than expected.

Much better than their beer, that’s for sure. I’m actually surprised how much flavour there is. So Molson does know what flavour is, but they consciously decide not to put it in their beer? The fact that this has a decent flavour makes their beer taste even worse in comparison. Light amber colour. Tart but slightly funky aroma. Taste is crisp apples. One dimensional but not bad.

Can, what you would expect from a molson cdn cider, light and easy drinking and not much too it, which is certainly that is desierable from time to time.
