Davros (1948) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours gold with a fading head. Nose shows some mix of cardamon, cumin, nutmeg, cloves or star anise along with a hint of baked pears. Not sure about the savoury cumin-like character. More cardamon as a flavour along with a harsh, herbal astringency. Very little supporting malt and the aggressive bitterness clashes with the spices. Carbonation is too high.

Served on tap in a chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a hazy golden orange color with a one finger head of white foam atop. The head fades rather fast leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – As may be expected for a spiced pear ale, both the pear and the spice show up strong. The pear is the heaviest, but the spice comes in a close second with lots of cardamom, cumin, and clove. Along with these smells are also some light lemon aromas and a little bit of a herbal smell. Taste – The taste is much drier then I would have anticipated from the nose with it beginning with a rather drier pear flavor mixed with some flavors of a more cracker like nature. Spice flavors of cardamom and cumin begin the flavor profile with a bit of clove coming on later. Along with the incoming spices so too comes some herbal flavors and a bit of lemon. A bit of a more peppery flavor comes at the very end along with a sweetening of the pear a bit, producing a rather odd, still moderately dry and spiced flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on average side with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both are quite complementing of the spice and the pear and help keep it a bit easy drinking even with the somewhat odd mix of flavors on the tongue at the end of the taste. Overall – A rather interesting try, but nothing all that overly exceptional. Worth one try, but not too many more.

On draught at 26th Oregon Brewers Festival. Cloudy golden color. Aroma is spicy, with pepper and cooking spice. Taste is spiced ale, but pear is not coming through. Good spiced beer, but wanted some pear also.

Hmm, quite disappointing. There’s spices galore but it’s not a good thing. It’s dry & a touch bitter. Surprised this is considered a fruit beer. Not that good at all!

Not a bad pear. Pours a very nice golden. Smells like cloves and spices. Taste has some pear, but more bay leaf and some hops to finish. Not bad, but could do better. Had on tap at Oregon Brewers Festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nealblind (841) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Gold mostly clear pour some head. Smell of cumin, corriander, and strangely, sage. Also fruity bananas on the nose. Intense spice flavor. A bit too medicinal and drying. With all of these intense savory spice flavors it seems like other flavors are missing like garlic and hot peppers. Honey sweet pear also comes through here. A noble experiment, at least it freshened my breath.

ericdevin (802) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Draft at 16 Tons Cafe, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy golden, as befits having pear juice. Decent amount off-white head. Aroma citrus hoppiness, pear, grassy notes as well. Body somewhat dull, medium, slightly creamy. Finish surprisingly bitter, long-lasting, sharp, resinous, spicy.

This yellow beer has a complex spicy aroma. It has a slightly bitter taste and finishes clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a dull yellow, thin bubbly white head. Nose is super sweet, fruity, clove, slight hop. Light bodied, bitter and hints of sweet coming through, more of a hop bitterness then the nose lets you think. Decent beer, it definitely lives up to the Oddland name.
