Can (4.7%, from Citymarket, Pori). Extremely pale yellow colour, no head. Aroma is sweet artificial pear along with mild caramelly notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Toffee and raisins in the finish. Artificial from beginning to end.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. No head. No color either, except for an almost invisible yellow brilliance. Smells pear, the kind of pear-smell like pears from a canned fruit-cocktail. Suger-sweet taste, my tastebuds didn’t detect pear particularly, it’s more like a random fruit-candy flavor. Some acidicy in the finish.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Small grayish head quickly disappears entirely. Body looks like water with a splash of apple juice in it. In fact, it’s visually identical with its apple cousin. Sweet, artificial powdery pear aroma. No complexity at all. Taste is thin, sweet pear, rather artificial. Somewhat watery. Aftertaste is artificially acidic, tastes of chemicals. Sugary. Drinkable, but unpleasant. (0.5l can.)

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Not much color here, just a little touch of yellow. It is clear-bodied, with a low carbonation compared to the Kopparberg and Grevens Pear Ciders, and there is no head at all. The aroma is sweeter than on the before-mentioned ciders, but the same artificial pear-aroma is present. It tastes quite perfumed and flowerish, and off course there’s artificial pear. Wouldn’t mind some acidity in it, it is so sweet it feels like you have fur on your teeth after only a few sips. Still, of the three pear ciders available in Norway at the moment, this is actually the best. (070117)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Can 50 cl) Crystal clear with a weak touch of green. No head but lots of bubbles from the heavy carbonation. Pronounced scent of pear - be it artificial or not - and strong flavour of the same. Very sweetish with a slightly sticky palate. No real acidity. Works all right as long as it’s cold. 210905
