Red Roof is unlike any other apple cider you will encounter. You will find that Red Roof has a unique flavour and is hand made from real apples, not from concentrate. It has a bold start and a crisp, snappy finish! Okanagan Bubbly is a light semi-sweet, fruity Okanagan apple cider. The effervescent bubbles add delight to the experience and bring immediate refreshment. It has a soft and luscious start and a fresh finish!

355 ml bottle. Pours a light clear straw color with no head and lots of big bubble carbonation. Aromas of fresh cut apples. Flavors are same though light - not too sweet and not too dry. Pretty simple.

Bottle. Clear tinted yellow. Aroma of crisp green apple, and softened/overripe apple skin. Taste is watered sweetness. Palate is crisp, clean, and a hint of tart bite right at the end.

On tap @ Tap & Barrel - Coal Harbour. Clear yellow pour with a few visible bubbles. Smells really heavy of fruit skins and maybe even wood. White pepper, apple and pear, and a bit of sugar. Slight tartness to the flavor. Drying pepper and fruit skins. Maybe some wood, lemon zest, and a bit of simple syrup. Eh.

Beautiful, champagne-like pour results in a clear, crisp, golden glass of fizzy cider. Martinelli’s nose. Soda-like sweetness and almost-artificial appleyness dabbles with notes of Jolly Rancher. A touch of dryness, most likely from the carbonation, saves the experience from being too pop-ish.. still, the simplicity and sugary profile does not make this something I would care to revisit. There are just too many good ciders available to me. I would rather have a can of Crispin.. Still, there’s nothing inherently off here. Tough one to criticize, just not what I want when I want cider.

Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours a still clear green-tinted yellow. Aroma of mint-tinged apples, and some subtle white wine notes. The white wine is much more pronounced in the flavour, with white wine-soaked apples dominating. Very complex and deep. Great one.

Apple soft spice light sulfur and citrus hop pours pale golden thin head fades quickly. Flavors of juicy apple sulfur light spice touch of tart. Not unpleasant just kind of there.

Big 1L swingtop clear bottle I purchased somewhere in Kelowna this spring, and shared with a group of friends out at the lake. Very pale straw yellow, medium carbonation. Aroma is crisp apple with a mild sulphite sting early after the pour that thankfully fades to become non apparent. Juicy crisp apple favour, medium sweetness, not much in the way of compexity or character (no real spice, yeast etc). Nothing stands out to warrent the ridiculous price I paid for this.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Pale blond color. Semi-dry cider, with citrusy sourness, light apple juice flavor; all this is positive, but the aroma is quite cheap.
Unfortunately I just got many French ciders, and this one can’t be compared to those...
