Lilley's - Apple & Pears Cider

Lilley's - Apple & Pears Cider

A very busy day that flew past was ended with a work contract for me to sign...hopefully they don't regret me signing it! As a usual cider drinker (although I have to admit craft beers are winning me over), James suggested a Lilley's, and Jack leaned me towards a nice Apples & Pears combo.

The Somerset outfit offer this cider in a 500ml bottle running at a solid 5.2% with some delightful pears and ciders adorning the label. A smooth bottle top opening was a welcome success after my can foaming issues of previous days, and the reward was a very sweet scent of pears wafting towards me.

The first taste was obviously sweet, but not too overbearing, with a strong pear taste that's slightly succeeded by apple to finish. There's a slightly stickiness in the mouth at the end of each mouthful, but it's certainly a light and refreshing taste that's enjoyable. It's seems that I've discovered over the last two days that a strong sweet hit isn't my ideal drink, but this apple and pear cider definitely would do the job for me every once in a while with no complaints.

36 minutes and a pleasant supper for the journey. A good fruity, refreshing offer for any cider lover I'd say.

That's me done, fifteen minutes to go (hopefully), so I'll catch you on the morrow.

Cheers!

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
