UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle into footed pilsner glass, golden color, bubbly with fluffy white head. Aroma of malt sweetness and tea. Taste adds a note of pear and herbal hops. Light body, heavy carbonation, effervescent, clean with some grassy bitterness on the finish. Very good take on the classic pils, enjoyed.

12 oz. bottle served in a flute- poured a transparent thin yellow color, very lively carbonation, wafer thin white head formed atop the liquid surface, nominal lacing upon the vessel. Aroma of Saaz hops, pear, and straw. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt has some body to it- which is enjoyable, middle has some light sweetness, finish is somewhat drying and crisp. Not too shabby!

This was a tasty brew...but not a Pilsner! Pear muted traditional aroma and flavor...without adding a true fruit contribution.

Draft at HopCat. Clear yellow color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of freshly cut hay. Taste has lightly bitter and peppery straw. Decent.

ContemplateBeer (1683) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma: Pear is apparent, a little lemongrass, light cracker. Appearance: Golden beer with a skin of white head. Flavor: A little pear up front accompanied by hay; lemongrass picks up a little more toward the finish, which is lightly bitter. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: I donít think this would really appeal to the pils purists out there, but itís a fine enough beer on itís own.

On tap at Big Fish Grille, Rehoboth Beach. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking semi-hazy to light transparent golden color. Even with a bar pourís kind of head, thereís a light fingerís worth of white foaminess. However, no lacing appeared as it slid down. The smell started off with the white pear encompassing into a crisp sweet corn and a nice little spice from the hops. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined to flavor. Thereís no aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed a bit under but that didnít bother me, just was a bit smoother. Overall, a nice Czech Pilsener with a unique quality of the white pear to keep DFH roaming across the lines of different.

Not much aroma, maybe some grain. Taste is of some grain and a light touch of honey and pear. I will need to re- rate this when it is fresher.

Lowe1983 (1377) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours a very light amber color with a white head. Aroma is of some earth tones with floral hops and a hint of the fruit. Flavor is slightly different with more of the past coming out. Still had a finish of the floral hops and earth tones.

BREWMUSKCLES (2359) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2015
some kinda fruity honey like aroma which is ok since you donít get the overiding pear to set the tone. then what you get is a fairly intense pilsener type brew with good body and flavor as it should be. without any gimmick from the pear. nice bitter thru out and a sense of tang not easy to discern. so itís a bit mysterious.

Nice scent with good looking color along with head, pear flavor is good with pear could have been better still different and tasty
