Keg in the George and Dragon, Dent. Pale greenish colour. Not particularly nice. Aside from the obvious pear notes it tastes of artificial sweetener with a bit of a bad bitter finish. Watery despite the strength. This was my first foray into the world of perry and it’s not made me want to return any time soon. It did improve after a few sips, but i still found it watery and lacking in flavour.

On tap at Bree Louise with Sarah. Pours a clear gold with a white soapy head that dissipates completely and immediately. Aroma has a nice note of light sweet pear with a nice crispness. Flavor starts with crisp sweet pear with a bit of underlying grass to add a bit of bitterness.

Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Bag at the Willow Walk, JDW, London. Pours a very faintly hazy yellow with no head. Dank pear nose with some tangy fruits. Big sweet flavor with loads of ripe pear, straight sugar, faint zippy vinegar. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with faint spices and super sugary pears. Very one-dimensional.

Bag-in-the-box at The Globe, King’s Lynn
Deep blond color, flat. Very light fruit aroma. The mouthfeel is almost oily; it has more body than usual perries, with some light but fresh pear juice flavor; a bit woody, bitter and alcoholic in the end.
Just too hard cider for me, but not bad.
