Kopparberg Pear Cider
Disadvantages: Price in pubs
I'm not much of a cider drinker, and would much prefer a nice pint of Lager. However recently I have become quite fond of flavoured ciders, especially when they are over ice on a nice sunny summers day (although we don't get many of them in Scotland).
Kopparberg is a premium Swedish cider brand and one of the UK's top selling brands of cider. They make a variety of different flavours of cider both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
Kopparberg pride themselves in their image and promote events all over the country including music festivals, clubs and other events. The image of this brand is very good and due to its promotion has made the products very popular.
Kopparberg pear comes in 500ml glass bottles and is 4.5% alcoholic volume. The glass bottles are good looking and you can really tell that it is a premium product. 4.5% is a decent strength for this cider as you can tell that it's alcoholic but can still be easily drunk.
Opening the bottle you can tell that this is a sweet cider and the smell of pear really comes through. Even though this is a very sweet drink I think it is one of my favourite pear ciders. The taste is just amazing and it is still really drinkable unlike a lot of pear or apple cider which I just find absolutely horrible.
Priced at around £2.20 or 3 for £5 in most supermarkets, I think this is a good value product. In bars you would expect to pay more, probably around £3.99 in most that I have been to. Normally I would have this as a refreshing treat instead of my usual lager as it is more expensive but you are paying for quality so it is well worth it. Much like other Kopparberg products I would like to see these come in a box of 6 or more, as buying lots of bottles at a time is frustrating to carry.
All in all this is my favourite out of all the pear or apple ciders I have tried and I love it as a bit of a change or a treat to myself. I probably wouldn't buy it in a bar because of the price but when it is on offer then I'm straight to the shelves to get myself some.
This product is well deserving of 5 stars as it is a truly tasty cider. Well done Kopparberg!
