Best served on a hot summers day in a tall ice cold glass filled with ice!
I've never really liked cider since I outgrew the teenage phase, which back then I used to treat myself to the litre bottles coming to a couple of pounds but when I smelt the pear aroma coming from my friends glass I just had to give it another try.
The first glass is amazing. The pear isn't overpowering but hints just enough to make it tasty and unlike a normal cider. I don't think they're that strong which makes it like drinking a nice glass of fizzy juice, it's perfectly light and bubbly.
Then comes the second glass. Along with the burps and the sweet after taste. I didn't look at the contents and I'm not going to reel off the ingredients in this review but I can almost for certain say that there will be a lot of sugar content in this drink. I don't have a massive sweet tooth but I love sweets and even for me I could only drink one glass before I could feel the sugar crystallising in my mouth - and I'm sweet enough.
Going off pub prices it's very expensive compared to my usual pint of beer. I think you would find yourself paying around £4 on average in a Manchester pub but if you are only going to drink one or two like myself it isn't a huge bank breaker.
I'm not a connoisseur but in my opinion not very alcoholic for a cider, fairly light so perfect for the odd one on a summer evening.
All in all average, I can't be too harsh I am a northerner... I've had more ciders than hot dinners
Summary: Average cider
