Strongbow was founded by Bulmer’s back in 1887 and was introduced to Australians in 1970. Strongbow Pear Cider is a lightly coloured cider with a noticeable pear aroma, fruity flavour and well-balanced sweetness. It is smooth on the palate and the aftertaste is a faintly woody pear character with a very refreshing, clean finish.

ALLOVATE (2899) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2012
Highly effervescent; big bubbles, little bubbles, streams and adhesive bubbles, all types giving it an audible snap, crackle, pop effect. Translucent and a strained straw yellow in colour. Initial vinegary tingle to the aroma, wanes to reveal soft white cheese and a very subtle hint of pear drops. Sweet, teeth rattlingly so. No body, sticky feel though watery thin and stressed for flavour. Pear juice concentrate could be the only thing in there, light wood on the finish, crisp and clean after. Could be my shortest rating yet! (33cL, BB 23/02/14, Thirsty Camel Butler)

Muggus69 (2119) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2012
355mL bottle Straw body, very clear with medium bubbles. Not a great deal to the nose and body, hint of pear drop and chalky apple. Dry and lean on the palate, drops away quickly. Suppose it meets the criteria of being a pear cider, but not particularly interesting.

Dervock (973) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle - Pour pale yellow (almost clear). Not much of an aroma, very light pear. Very light taste, some pear. No real aftertaste. Great for a warm day!
