Having previously reviewed Shiny Apple Cider’s Pinot & Cider, we move on to the more classic offering.

As far as ciders go, Shiny Cider offers Ontario apples at a respectable 7% ABV.

A very pale straw in the glass, this cider has lightly sweet-smelling apple notes to it.

Neither dry nor sweet, the taste is unabashedly apple.

A smooth and relatively clean finish, only a light sweetness lingers on the palate.

At 7%, you could be swilling malt liquor, or crisp provincial apples; the only factor is, perhaps, cost.

Neither original nor displeasurable.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
