“Made from 88% pear and 12% apple. Sweet in flavour with a moth-watering almost exotic taste.”
Lilley’s Apples and Pears is another very sweet and refreshing drink that is perfect for the pub garden. The aroma is distinctly caramel with honey notes. The taste is both fruity and sweet but lacks in acidity, tannin and aftertaste.
Bittersweet apple follows the upfront sweetness quite rapidly but neither flavour lingers for long enough.
Lilley’s Apples and Pears is a lovely sweet perry/cider. It is the kind of beverage that you could consume too much of quite easily, in a pub garden on a summer’s day with friends.
