From a bottle. A little too sweet for me but still quite well made, I wouldn’t drink more than one.

Another lifeless cider with very little flavour or mouthfeel. Someone out there might enjoy this style but not me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Almost colourless, very pale yellow, with a bubbly white head that quickly disappears and aroma of earthy pear, sugary hints. Taste is sweet, pear, apple, woody note. Slight syrupy watery mouthfeel, light bodied, high carbonation, drying finish. OK.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a really light sweet pear cider from everyones favourite Kiwi’s Monteiths Brewing Company.
When it is warm this glides down the neck.
This is quite fizzy.
Not beer though.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Like observing effervescent urine in the glass, bright as bright and a strained, feintest yellow hue to what is otherwise a glass of soda water. Strong note of pork lard and salty gammon steaks on the nose, no pear to be seen, also has a note of mediciny, Vitamin C tablets (wtf???). Gassy, carbonic acid bite to the front, a little sweetness tries to peak out from underneath, otherwise it is dry, cardboardy and a little rough as it heads back. Very subtle old pear juice flavour masked by husky CO2 and stripped pine wood. Finish is all gas, no length, lathers the tongue with a film that is unwelcome. Kind of off-putting drinking it, it is just a wishy-washy mess, almost chemical, thin, watery. I don’t get how pear fruit can be turned into something as lifeless as this. Drain pour!
