“Metallic, like ink or blood”
Certified cider flavour standard used to train professional cider tasters to recognize and scale the intensity of metallic character.
Metallic notes are derived from contamination of cider with metal ions, either from raw materials or from corrosion of factory equipment. This character primarily affects mouthfeel but occasionally the aroma and colour of the product can be affected.
