Mr. Alexander Keiths Original Cider

Postby Guybrush » Sat Mar 24, 2012 9:17 am

Any of you hop-heads drink cider?

Saw this at the LCBO in single cans, and 6-pack bottles. Haven't cracked the can I bought, yet. This one is so new it's not on ratebeer, nor their own website. Their own Facebook page doesn't even mention it.

5.5% alc./vol. Has things like sucrose, malic acid, and flavour listed in the ingredients. Weird, whenever I make cider at home i don't add flavour, i just assume it's in there already. Maybe I've been making it wrong?

And on their fine-print on the side of the can, you can read it's imported from St. Louis, packaged in New York, but to contact them they put the keiths.ca website. That's crazy, I always thought Halifax was in Nova Scotia, not St. Louis?

Ya I found it to pretty much tasted how you did. Did you find it was really sweet? Must be all that sucrose they add. The LCBO says it has a sugar level of 6 for cans, and 5 for bottles. Oh LCBO, when will you get things straight?

Is there hope that they'll release the original IPA?

They'd screw it up royally.

The cider is an example of shit still being shit no matter how much sugar you put in it.
