[Polypin at the Three Crowns, Chippenham] Cloudy, very pale gold. Vinegary aroma - but good quality vinegar. In the mouth it’s one of the smoothest drinks I’ve ever tasted. Sweet eating apples, vanilla and soft creamy pears come through, just kept wanting to taste this over and over again. Amazingly tasty, amazingly more-ish. No sourness, and little dryness, yet somehow manages to avoid being oversweet. Fantastic stuff - restored my interest in perry after a previous bad experience.

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2010
From a polypin at the Wellington, Bristol 29/05/10. Sweetish aroma of juicy pears with some lemon. Flavour had more sweet fruit, with a touch of drier skin and spice in the finish. Good.

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2009
Polycask at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 07-05-09 Pours straw colour gloriously sweet after I’d had a slew of dry or med dry ciders. Nose is a little waxy but the sweetness is there also, little bit shallow on depth of flavour, but really very nice although that sweetness lingers. A6 A4 F7 P3 Ov14 3.4

yespr (30765) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2008
From cask at Three Judges. Pours hazy yellow with no head. Sweet and fruity apple aroma. No carbonation Sweet apple flavoured. Almost candy like. Vague phenolic note on the back of the nose. But otherwise rather sweet. Light yeasty note in the finish. Quite sticky sweet and almost cloying by the half pint even.

maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2008
From the barrel Milton Keynes BF A very light lime gren coloured perry with hints of pear in the aroma. The taste is sweet and full of brown sugar. Just a hint of pear. Too sweet and unchallengingly commercial.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2008
On tap at Milton Keynes BF ’08. Pale gold. Lovely sweet pear aroma. Delicious sweet fruity taste. No sourness or dryness. Nice but you wouldn’t want much of it.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 16, 2007
From the barrel at Middle Farm, East Sussex. Cloudy, light yellow appearance. Dry perry aroma. Great taste and a smooth finish - sweet but not too sweet with a good aftertaste. A very nice perry.
