1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Had this so many times over the years, don’t ask me to explain why.
Tried from can and tried from bottle.
Fizzy clear light inside of pear colored, no head really but smoe fizzy white a little while. Smell and taste of sweet artificial pear and a lot of sugar. Fizzy mouthfeel. Sweet cloying finish.
If you’re a cider drinker the way I see it, you will not go for this, at least not more than once. This is not cider/perry to me, it is more of an alco-pop very sweetened up alcohol soft drink. I can see why the "kids" go for this stuff, when they’re out to get drunk on something that taste like the stuff they’re used to from McDonalds or whatever.
Nope, not for me, go for real, brewed, perry/cider instead of this stuff, please.
In conclusion it is sweet, then more sweet, and pretty artificial.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle; bb date of 25 Ma 2015 stamped on front label.
Served in a snifter, the liquid is clear and nearly colorless, but the appearance expected from filtered pear juice.
Refreshing, moderately sweet, a adequate amount of natural pear flavor.
