2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bomber from beverage store on camp pendleton near main gate, flute glass / fizzy pour, straw body, nearly no white head; not really soft bodied, actually--definitely pear, obviously... not quite near champagne; personally, it needs a creamier yet sharp mouthfeel with much more bubbles...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours light transparent yellow. Tiny fizzy head that crackles like a freshly poured coke. smell is light and tangy more of apples than pear. Kind of an acidic note in the nose. The taste is dryer than I expected with a good taste of pear and an acidic squelch in the back of the throat. Palate is light and lively with carbonation going wild in the mouth. This is a pretty good but not great.

12oz bottle. Poured a light a clear yellow color with almost no head. Wow, talk about a fresh pear aroma. Some light apples in the background, but this one was all pears. Tastes of pears and apples. I really don’t like pears or ciders for that matter, but I liked this one.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This is one of the best ciders I’ve had. It is a bit sweet, but not as sweet as many, and the flavour and taste are fruity and very good. It is crisp and clean
