First sip had a small, pleasant hoppy hit to it before a full tropical flavour took over the mouth. From there on there was a sticky, but energising note to finish off the mouthful with a slight bitter after taste that isn't too overbearing.

Lost and Found - Starlite Drive-In

September 13, 2019

A smooth can opening technique by me was followed by an even smoother smell of subtle fruity and tropical scents from the can. There were definitely hops in the air as well, and that really came through with the first taste.

Lilley's - Apple & Pears Cider

The Tipsy-Train Beer Blog with Lilley's Apple & Pears Cider

September 13, 2019

The first taste was obviously sweet, but not too overbearing, with a strong pear taste that's slightly succeeded by apple at the end. 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.

That's not to say that this Belgian Red Ale wasn't an interesting taste for my Tipsy-Train ride, it's just that it wasn't a smooth accompanying passenger that I could repeatedly enjoy next to me.

35 minutes in and the hoppy punch is still there and I have to say I'm enjoyed it. The tropical taste with an energising push behind it has made this a really tasty, interesting drink.

It was a late recommendation from my colleague Jack to go for the Polly's Brew Company IPA ' Takes A Little Time', but I believed in his confident assertion that it was the one to go for.

It has to be said that my hunch of which drink to go for was greatly influenced by the fantastic can art. Rocket ships and spaceman attacking a massive green space monster with floating skulls flying around was just too much to ignore!
