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!

Han

There's a light juicyness and soft feel to the drink, but you've certainly got that powerful IPA also marking it's territory. The hops certainly took control, but that very, very light bitterness and not too heavy feel in the mouth meant that I kept coming back for more with no doubt at all.

That sour blackberry rush powers through with those Pacific Gem hops which really opens your eyes, before a firm, but balanced bitterness arrives at the finish. As the swigs continue, that fruity taste never loses its oomph and as you grow more accustomed you certainly feel the salt running throughout.

For a red ale I was expecting too much of a malty or bitter side for my liking, but it was actually a very smooth and gentle taste. There's certainly a light bitterness and soft malty background to the drink, but the strong hoppy and fruity punch to it is really enjoyable.
