Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a clear blind color with lots of fluffy head and good lacing. Aroma is classic pilsner with a hint of something sweet. Taste is full of saaz hops and a good malt backbone. This reminds me of traditional pils from Europe. However, DFH has decided to add a sweet touch to it. Nice brew, very nice!

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a note of honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Not too bad, because thankfully the pear additions are not very apparent (still, why does DFH insist on putting unnecessary and sometimes downright stupid adjuncts in pretty much every single beer they make???)...in the nose itís more like alfalfa honey, whereas in the mouth it does seem like it has a fruity acidity, which Iím not fond of for the style. Sweetness lingers rather long too, and thereís not quite enough bitterness to clean the finish up. Kinda flabby watery-syrupy mouthfeel is probably the weakest link. Mediocre but better than usual for this brewery.

Seemed true to style -surprised by the additions. Nose is grassy and buttery. Clear gold with nice lacing. No off taste, well made and balanced. Dry, yes very dry, clean finish. Thirst quenching mouthfeel. Really good.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big sweet corn pils malt nose. The flavor is sweet toasted malt, citrus, huge dry pilsner malt. Solid. Clean.

Pour is a nice blond with a small retaining head and some awesome lacing. Smell is waaaay odd, floral and herbal, almost soapy somehow? Taste is herbal, there is maybe some lavender or mint there?? But also a sweet and bitter clash which leaves a nice long bitter finish

LinusStick (3201) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2016
Decent warm weather beer. Aroma was nice. That distinct Pilsner malt smell with wet hay and a hint of light fruit. Pour was a nice somewhat hazy medium light gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was a little odd. Didnít read the label before I started drinking it and was wondering why it had an off sweet flavor. The pear addition killed this beer. Nice Pils flavor at first sip- bitter and dry noble hops and wet hay but the sweetness of the pear kicks in mid sip and sweetens the beer too much. Not terrible but not what I was expecting. Very light carbonation and a sweet, sticky pear finish.

Pours a golden yellow with a white head. Aromas of bread/malts/hops. Crisp hop flavor with hints of fruit/malt.

Smells more fruity, tropical than a pale ale. Cloudy like a weissbier. Tastes like a Shandy. I imagine a non beer drinker may enjoy this. It is a nice palate cleanser and it is fine with me but not even close to a pils. Not lager like at all.

Bottle. Super refreshing and drinkable. Perfect tailgate beer. The echo of pear juice is fairly subtle but surely contributes to the drinkability. Nice consistency.

joejames (464) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy yellow gold. Two finger foamy white head.Nice lacing and small cap retention. Aroma herbal Saaz hops and pear juice. Taste is mainly fruity sweet with a typical noble hop light bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes slightly fruity bitter. Tasting notes of pear, herbs, grass and green apples. A little heavy for a Pils but interesting.

The beer pours light bright yellow with a large white head. He aroma has some dough, pils malt, herbs and light fruit. It has a medium body thatís smooth for the style and soft carbonation. The taste has some juicy fruit aspect thatís odd for the style and some spicy hops. The finish has more rich fruit. Okay, I guess.
