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. Couldn’t finish the can.

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 ...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

I could’ve 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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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 ?
