500ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Very pleasant crisp estery aroma, peary and appley. Pleasantly sweet but a little watery perhaps. Clean pears i the taste, with a nice sharp bite too. Very pleasant quaffer, slips down too easily. Overpriced at 11e though.

Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly astringent.
Very mild in all ways...light color, light aroma, light body, mild flavor. Pleasant and clean, but yeah...pretty unremarkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2012. How do so many perries end up tasting like lightly flavored soda pop? Perries must be hard to make, because this one isnít much offensive, but thereís nothing to latch onto. I appreciate some of the dryness, but I want some flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Bottle @ home- not sure where I picked this up (first American rater... where the fuck did I get this???) Iím not going to lie- this is a strange choice on my part to drink at 1am on a work night. Clear golden yellow appearance with a little, off-white head. Slightly spicy, vinous pear, a touch vinegar-like aroma. Tangy, pulpy pear, vinous, acidic flavor. This really isnít that smooth and tastes stronger than it actually is. Iím a little surprised that my cat was going to town drinking this- I guess at least itís not going to waste...
