Lily the Pink Cider
This is another purchase of a pint (or two) via the guys at Growler Beers (if you like beer or cider and are Edinburgh or lothians based you need to give them a try.
This Lily the Pink is from the same guys who produce Thundering Molly and it suffers from exactly the same issues in that it's seriously easily drinkable but there just isn't a lot going on with it.
The name and colour promise so much but it's just a little too watery and lacking in punch for me to get excited about.
I could easily, and maybe did, drink a fair amount of this but with ciders I really want to know I'm drinking them and this lacks that feeling.
The colour instantly made me thing this would be punchy and fruity but it's very much like traditional farmhouse cider with cloudy apples and gentle farmyard hay, a touch of foxes glacier fruits hides in the background though.
Very light and much more like a fruit juice than a punchy cider, sweet enough for me, quite watery Apple notes and a bit like those Apple flavoured waters you can get, very easy to drink though
Sweet and very easy going
