3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden color with a frothy white head that lasts and leaves a ring of lacing. Aroma has grass, floral hops, tea and a bit of pear juice, which makes this a very different pilsener. Taste is sweet (thanks to the pear juice) with a dry finish. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Easily drinkable if you donít mind tea in your beer. A refreshing pilsener with a new twist. Iím glad I picked up 4 of these when I found them on sale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a pils glass.
4.25 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. One finger of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is good and a large ring of lacing is left.
4.25 S: Quite an interesting take on the pils. Grainy neutral maltiness. Grassy and earthy hops. A touch of herbalness. Pear complements extremely well.
4.25 T: Taste is just as good. The pear comes out more prominently in the taste and again it fits right in. Grainy neutral maltiness. Grassy and earthy hops. Well done.
4.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.
4.25 D: Iím surprised how good of a beer this is. It wouldnít be an everyday pils, but its a damn good stray from the norm.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is floral/perfumy with notes of fresh cut grass, white pear, honeysuckle, and bready malt. Flavor is strange. Oversteeped tea tannin and syrupy pear mixed with herbal hops and bready malt. Definitely not my cup of tea (pun intended). Overall body is moderate and the finish is bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a murky golden hue with a frothy yet bubbly white head and plentiful streaky lacing. Nose is grassy malt with a hint of lemon zest. Refreshingly smooth, bitter-sweet tasting Pils, with a bit of pear on the back end. Although Iím a bit of a Hop-Head Iím enjoying this little number.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at a BBQ, 8/8/2015
The pear is subtle, but noticeable. It adds a bit of sweetness to the fairly clean and drinkable pilsener that lies underneath. Solid.

12oz bottle, poured into a footed pilsner glass. The aroma is stoney / mineral-like with a spiciness to it and a light pear note that strengthens late. The hue of the beer is yellow with a light haze and persistent effervescence , and itís topped by a white, fluffy foam head that only has a light retain and lace. The beer is a medium bitter and sweet. Itís oily with a light foam carbonation and a medium light body flavored with bread, rocks, spice, bitter citrus, and a light pear. It finishes crisp and spicy with minerals and is lightly dry. The aftertaste is moderately strong, but short with minerals and bitter citrus with spice and a hint of pear.
