MichaelAwesome (4053) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose shared with McTapps. A nice cider with a sweet taste and only a touch of perry in the aroma. Easily drinkable with some apples and lemons in the background. Nothing special but balanced carbo.

McTapps (4053) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Bought at local Waitrose in East Cowes. Pours out in a light golden colour with medium to smooth body. Aroma of mild pears and caramel. Taste of mild, ripe pears, mild apples, leaves, caramel and mild juice. Smooth to drink, not a bad one.

Philym (999) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Appearance: Clear golden/straw/green with bubbly white head on the pour. Aroma: Pear, musty, earthy, floral, note of barnyard, vanilla, woody, buttery and spicy. Taste: Medium acidity and tannin, low/medium sweetness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, medium body, average carbonation, lingering pear, vanilla, caramel/toffee finish. Comments: Delicious. The most assertive Perry I have had to date. 2011 Vintage. 2013 Vintage: Same as above but prickly carbonation, no vanilla, no barnyard in the aroma or finish. More of a pear, buttery caramel aroma and palate with a dry, lingering pear, white wine and caramel like finish. Again a very good Perry.

Drinkable perry, but I would expect a more interesting and complex flavour for its 8abv .
