2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
ím a beer man, not much of a cider lover. They are good for having around to appease guests who donít belong to our religion, and these found their way in my fridge somehow.
Clear, green, pearish color. Straightforward aromatics: yup, thatís pear up in there! Tart, yet sweet, smooth taste, with some initial bite on the palate. A tasty, delicious cider, one of the best.
But, I only enter this review because of an interesting item on the label: "Try with a pilsener or stout...enjoy!" Itís a damning admission, to suggest that your product is best when enhanced with another, like Corona with a lime. Well, hey, I just happen to have a can of Beamish in the fridge, so letís try it!
Hmmm...Mmmmm! The sharp pear flavor hitís the tongue at first, but the smooth, creamy nitro-charged stout holds it up, and carries it out, giving it a body it so sorely lacked. Not bad!
And hereís a bottle of Goose Island Pils that I was in no hurry to finish, so...A perfectly refreshing combination! The acidity of the cider, plus the hoppiness of the pils create a crisp, champagne-like effervescence that it delightful on the palate, a real treat to drink! So there you have, cider and beer, 2 great tastes that taste great together!
Review is based on the cider by itself, though!

Light yellow color. Well... it smells like pear, it tastes like pear, by golly itís pear cider. Very sweet. It just seems like thereís not much more than sweet pear in this drink.

Very pale in color. Flavor is very mild and really easy to drink. I think this stuff used to be 4% a few years back, I guess they must have raised the alcohol level.

This bottled cider poured a very small sized head of clear colored quickly diminishing bubbles. The body was transparent uncarbonated and weak yellow in color. It had a Peary aroma and a smooth cider pear mouth feel. The flavor tasted like squeezed pears mixed with water.

I love bartlett pears, and pear jelly belly jelly beans, and this satisfies both of those cravings. Itís not much on appearance. The aroma is pure pears, and the taste is peary, with a sweet, carbonated, refreshing finish. Give me this over most wines and low end beers any day of the week.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Very small head with fine-small sized bubbles that fully diminished. Clear body. Sugary and pear aroma. Sweet, sugary, bland, flat, and boring flavor. Smooth, watery, thiin palate. Light bodied with no lacing.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Free sample from a local establishment. Tap. Pours almost clear with no head except for a few bubbles. Smells like a pear jam of sorts. tastes like a pear jam of some sort only with extra sugars. finishes clean and smooth, there is a bit more than pears and sweetness here. The overall positive i have from this is that it leaves a great mouthfeel and makes my mouth happy, but only on the finish. i could not drink this regularly, too damn sweet.

Very pale yellow. Head dies obviously. Nose is slightly chemically but isnít awful at all. Smells of sharp cheese, pear, oregano? What!? In the mouth itís not bad. Nice carbonation that suits the tangy peary taste. good cider. Donít know much about cider but I like it.
