COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A still sweet perry available in 750ml bottles.
NB: Gwatkin sometimes produces one-off draught versions that differ significantly from the bottled. If you rate a draught version please specify that and include details of the ABV and designated sweetness level (if provided).

Malvern Hill is the common name for this variety of pear, because the trees are said to grow as tall as the Malvern Hills. However, its correct name is the Moorcroft Pear. The pears, which are large and yellow, rot quickly and need to be harvested as soon as they fall, making it difficult for the perry maker. In the 1800ís, when Britain was at war with France, perry became the "Wine of England" being popular amongst the labels of high society.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle, 75cl. Itís an almost colorless perry, some yellowish tints though. Clear. The aroma is on the fruity side, pears and apples, and some farmyard hints. Some sulphur notes in both aroma and flavor. Else thereís pears dominating the flavor, something I donít recognize blends in. Itís quite sweetish too, medium to full bodied and quite oily. A decent perry, but not very interesting. 111105

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle from Tannerís Wines, Hereford. Slightly hazy, pale gold with a small amount of short-lived carbonation. Big, sweet pear juice aroma with some yeast character and touch of wood. Flavour was also dominated by attractive sweet pears, with some accompanying spice, and a touch of sugar in the finish. An excellent sweet perry.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Southampton Arms.
Wow wow wow. This is excellent stuff. Amazing hazy lemon yellow colour. Massive freshly pressed pears on the nose. Incredibly juicy yet dry in the mouth. Just the right level of fruit and wood. Effortlessly drinkable. Hints of vanilla and cinnamon are just about perfect. Absolutely outstanding stuff.
