COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We all need a bit of variety and thatís why we came up with the idea for Magnerís Pear. Of course, we like to do things properly and donít mind taking our time about it, so unlike some Pear cider, the only fruit that goes into ours is pears.

And of course, youíll only find 100% premium quality pears in Magners Pear, which we filter to get rid of any impurities before fermenting slowly.

Thatís what makes Magners Pear so fresh, fruity and full of flavor. So next time youíre out and wanting a bit of a change, pour a Magners Pear, sit back and enjoy.

Pours a very clear yellow color. I get a little bit of pear in the aroma, but what really stands out is a ton of notes that resemble the inside of a plastic bucket. Thankfully the flavor is better. I get a lot of sweet pear notes, with a little bit of vanilla thrown in. Decent, but not one to seek out.

Jimthechap (1570) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 2, 2012
Clear and very pale in colour with big persistent bubbles. Aromas are of clean, chemical freshness. Almost feinty even with touches of unripe pear which mellows as it interacts with the air around it. Full carbonation and then sweet sweet sweet lolly-like fruit. Tingles on the tongue and while it isnít a challenging drink, it is a palate refreshing easy quaffer. No wonder itís popular.

DuffMan (6552) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
Ca. Clear pale yellow, medium carbo. Aroma is fresh pear and green appleskins. Flavour is same, with a slightly medicinal quality in the finish. After about 10 sips, the syrupy sweetness becomes too cloying for me to continue. More a cooler than a brewed beverage. Poor. Couldnít finish the can.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
500ml can from an off-license. Extremely pale yellow, clear and bubbly, small and quick-diminishing fizzy white head. Smells like green pear, light alcohol and a bit of mint and lime. Tastes like sweetened ripe pear and a bit of lime, watered down some - light syrupy body, solid carbonation, bit of a sweet finish ...

madvike (2672) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle - Pours clear pale, pale yellow--close to clear--with a thin ring of white head. Nose is oddly soured wheat, with a bit of cane sugary sweetness. Taste is sugary sweet pear, skin and all, with a long sugary finish. Sweet white wine mixed in too, and a long sugary finish. Slick and medium-bodied without a whole lot of carbonation. Too sweet for my tastes.

Rasmus40 (10643) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle from Bierfass, Aarhus. Clear champagne-colour with a white head. Aroma is sweet pear, sweet apples and sugary. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet finish. Watery. 250812

BVery (5983) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. Very pale yellow pour, crystal clear, with a very minimal head. Aroma is pear, but maybe a bit artificial. Taste is pear, and a touch of white grapes. Could use a bit more carbonation as well.

jredmond (5260) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2012
I couldíve sworn this beer was unrateable, but oh well. Had a ton of these one night in Ireland when I was sick of guinness. Much like the standard Magners offering, the Pear is over carbonated and highly sweet. Lots of sugar, apple, pear and artifical sweetener. IIWII.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2012
On draught at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest. Pours a pale straw colour with pear, alcohol and yeast characters. Moderate carbonation and a dry finish. OK.

jjgmd (1375) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Another try at a hard cider. Color is pale, nose is flat. Slight fruity notes with moderate carbonation. Believe I will stay with my micros. Quaff Score 2 / 10, maybe nice on a sweltering hot day ?
