Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Faint smell of sweet, yellow pear
Initial Taste:  Minimum bite from carbonation, sweet and smooth taste of candied Bartlett golden pear. Some acidity.
After Taste:  Taste dissipates quickly. Flavour gets sweeter as time goes on.  Aftertaste is pretty minimal. Some film, possibly from sweetening additives.
On ice: Not as sweet on ice.  Less flavour.

Additional Notes:  An extra sweet Bartlett pear tasting cider, this semi-dry cider has a very flavourful yellow pear taste. Not a traditional cider, nor a traditional perry, but it is easy to drink. A nice introduction to perry ciders for commercial cider fans.
