Bottle from Tesco and drunk at home. Pale gold clear not many bubbles at all. Some pear on the aroma. Sweetish pear juice in the mouth. It’s not terrible, but it’s not great either. Just too sweet. OK for the mass audience, no good if you like perry though. Not sure I’ll finish the bottle. Not that it’s horrible, it’s just too sweet.

Klassischer Perry ohne große Höhepunkte. Etwas viel an Zucker, ein paar undefinierbare Früchte und ein süßer Abgang. Geht so.

As Simply TossCo. Warwickshire’s premier Eis-perry (hoyed the bastard in the freezer and forgot about it). Cloudy lemonade looks mid-thaw; liquified clear with a white wine transparency and headlessness. Nose of vanilla ice cream over underlying acidic interest. Sweet-sour but mostly sweet with good natural fruit and vanilla flavours, the sweetness well tempered by yeast and sorbet/Sicilian lemonade lemonade sharpness. Maybe it’s just the neat booze I’m drinking. Devilishly easy drinking.

Bottle. Very pale yellow cider with some bubbles. Aroma of faint pear and apple peel. Taste is pears, sweetener and quite tart. OK for the price, at least it has some taste of pears to it.

Bottle. Pale gold with light carbonation. Aromas are sweet pear with some citrus. Flavours are pear drop sweets with earthy, ripe notes. Fruity on the finish but with some artificial notes. I prefer my perries to be more agricultural.
