Like many of the beers brewed by Dogfish Head, this struck me as such an odd idea, but upon trying it I really liked it. The pear is subtle, and it really blends well with the beer. This beer had the light body and crisp hoppy bitterness of a real Czech Pilsner. The hops didn’t taste quite right for the style, but I always feel that way of American attempts at Czech Pilsners. The rich aroma of the malt, and a certain grassiness, struck me as authentic. But the pear was something completely different. It really worked and I’d drink it again.

Bottle. Floral barley malt and light hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate off-white head. Sweet floral pear, barley malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Interesting.

Narnad (1485) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Pours a deep golden color with a modest white head. Aroma has a lot of Saaz in the nose with a modest pear following the hops presence. Flavor starts off with some noble hops presence but is quickly quelled by the pear sweetness and grainy pils presence. Body is light with sharp, large bubbles for carbonation. Overall a very tasty, refreshing brew.

bavarian81 (66) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Pours a clear, deep gold color. Has a thick, but dissipating head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma of sweet, pale malt as well as some indistinct fruit. Flavor has some hop bitterness as well as some tartness, which may come from the pear. Pretty good

Bottle from Leafs93. Pours hazy golden, lots of lacing as white head subsides. Fresh cut grass, light malt backbone, and subtle pear create a refreshing aroma. Tastes of sweet grains, ripe apples and pears. Notes of sugar cane balanced out with hop bitters. Very smooth pilsner. Thanks Leafs93.

Pours a clear light gold. Thin head, heavy lacing. Bitter grapefruit and lemon aromas. Skunky citrus flavors, hints of hops at the end. An okay pils. Nothing special.

Capa (2153) - Transient., - MAR 18, 2015
Light hazy with a white head. Aroma is noble hops, light sweet, a bit grassy. Flavor doesn’t match the aroma in the hop levels. A little saaz but mostly sweet and fruity. Dry finish with a little bite. Decent but one is enough.

Gachupines (997) - USA - MAR 17, 2015
Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is very slight must with a bit of grass. Flavor is light a clean with a very crisp finish. LIght hops with just a touch of pear. Pretty nice pilsner. Wife: 3.2

Bottle. Pours a golden colour with an almost inexistent white head. Aroma is herbal. Taste is herbal, pear. Decent.

UNCCTF (511) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden color with a white head that laces the glass nicely. Aroma of grass and some pear. Flavor is pretty crisp with some malt, and a really crisp finish with some nice, unexpected hoppiness. I got this at Trader Joe’s for $4.99/4pk. I may have to go back and stock up.

Bottle at home while in jville. Pours light amber gold with a white head. Light bread lemon aroma. light body, medium to full carbonation. Light corn, honey, metal... A dull affair.
