2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iím not a fan of Magnerís apple cider so it really wasnít much of a surprise to find this isnít to my taste either. Very sugary with an artificial pear taste (even though it claims to have no artificial flavouring). Very much like a cheap, supermarket own brand perry rather than a cider. The taste is sticky and sweet with no acidity or bitterness to cut through the sugar. Got this as part of a gift set and unlikely to be on my shopping list ever again.

Bottle from Bertís
Picked up on a whim. Pours the lightest of straw with a dismal head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of apple, pear, and sulfur. Flavor isnít much better. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Drinkable but not a whole lot different than a macro cider. One and done for me.

Rating #868 - December 29, 2013 - 500mL Can from Coop. 6%. Clear, very pale yellow colour, weakly carbonated. Aroma is sweet pears. Taste is bubbly sweet, alcohol very well disguised, this could pass for juice. Not much to distinguish from other ciders/perries.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear yellow/green with no head. Not much of an aroma, just sweet pear flavour and not even very potent at that. I expected more of a pear taste. This is very much like cheap champagne.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours like a whit wine. Looks like it too. Sweet sugary aroma. Has an off pear taste. Its ok. Iím not really a cider drinker, but my girlfriend is. She likes this, but I think Fox Barrel pear cider is better.

I love Magnerís Pear Cider. It trumped Sir Perry in my books and I loved that the first time I had it.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 No aroma. Flavor is similar to champagne and aftertaste has a cheese-like quality. Not good.

Not a fan. Pear cider? Weird taste if you like ciders. Not much else to say about this beer.

Almost water clear with no head. Aroma is sour musty pears. Flavor is sweet light pears. Light bodied and watery but it is a cider.

My first pear cider and sampled from the bottle at the UK Pavilion on Epcot. I wasnít sure what to make of this,but it was much drier and crisper that I thought it would be. I found the pear flavor to be very subtle and it faded quickly into the dry bite at the end. Highly recommended if you Ike dry ciders.
