Samuel Smith's Organic Cider is one of the new fall 2010 LCBO additions. It is made from organically grown apples with cane sugar and retails for $4.95, which is pretty pricey for a 550 mL bottle.
The cider is, well, pale straw in color and well carbonated. The aroma is of sweet apples with a slight vinegar scent. The taste is absolutely stunning. It tastes like no other cider I have tried. It can only be described as an apple juice mixed with some club soda with some citric acid added. I have no idea where the alcohol comes from, but this is still is 5% ABV. Due to the cane sugar, the cider does get a little sweet by the end of the bottle, but the apple sourness helps a little. The one thing I should note is the thickness of the cider. It is a little more syrupy than other ciders I have tried, but it is still pretty damn good.
Cost - $4.95 for a 550 mL bottle
Taste - 8.2/10
Overall - 8.2/10...solid cider, but a little syrupy and a bit pricey
