COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Mout Pear Scrumpy calls for ripe eating pears off the tree to meet their glorious end in this rather traditional drop. With its ample taste and juicy bite, thereís absolutely no doubt about the pear in here.

330ml bottle bought at Oliverís The Delicatessen in Central.

Clear white-winesque very pale straw colour; Razor thin head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Minimal lacing with fizzy carbonation; Lightly tart aroma of pear flesh, apple flesh, and light sparkling wine; Light and pleasant sweet and tart taste of dry sparkling white wine, pear flesh, pear juice, tannic, and strong alcohol; Light body with dry, crisp and quite tart palate; Mouth feel is pleasant and dry white wine with very strong and natural pear character. Sweetness and tartness are in right amount and complement each other nicely; Alcohol taste is obvious at 8% abv, but itís neither dominating nor caustic as in some cheap BSAs or Dunkler Bocks Iíve tasted. Nice! Crisp after taste, very easy and tasty to mouth.

Comments: A very accessible Perry with good and real pear taste, strong but pleasant booze, and nice crisp palate. With a bit more tartness, this one will be perfect. Nice one!

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2012 Had on tap at Beervana. A very special cider. Unusual indeed but everything worked very well together. Pretty much take their already awesome scrumpy, then add a load of pear and a touch of soft spritz. Was probably the highlight out of the Old Mout range. This and the scrumpy
