Ok so the pear is non - existent but who cares, pears suck anyway. This is a great summer time pilsner. It has an awesome tangy lemony finish that makes it stand out from your average pale ale or pils. At 6% this beer actually kicks ass.

ARH (810) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2015
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 it’s topped by a white, fluffy foam head that only has a light retain and lace. The beer is a medium bitter and sweet. It’s 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.

Gold pour, little sediment, creamy white head. nose is pils malt and, yes, some pear. Sweeter than a usual pilsner. Middle is soft malt at the front, followed by quick and noticeable pear. Finish is nice , lasting , Saaz hopiness.

Aroma is light fruit, light hops, Clear Golden color. Creamy White head is lastingTaste is tart pear. The pear pretty much dominates. Touch of hoppy aftertaste that fades to hair spray pretty quickly.Feel is creamy up front with nice carbonation underneath.Not bad. I feel like the pear doesn?t quite fit this beer. Maybe with something stronger like an ipa or an apa, it would not take over as much. Still above average.

Deep gold, effervescent, tight white head. Yeasty nose. Full body, moderate flavor, moderate heat and carbonation, long palate. Very bittersweet with bitterness predominating in the finish, refreshing acidity, good balance. Fruity, hoppy, yeasty. Lager with the soul of an ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle picked up at cheese mongers Leavenworth. Pours out a cloudy golden topped with a white head. Nose is spice pepper some grassy notes. Taste is more of the spice and bread malts and a nice end.

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 (1719) - 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 don’t think this would really appeal to the pils purists out there, but it’s a fine enough beer on it’s own.
