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!
