3.46/5 rDev -1.1%
This looks a lot like the DB Tasmanian Pale Ale I had last night. Clearer though. Less golden against my screen and less orange against the wall. Call it a brownish orange. 1 1/2 finger whitish head that disappears way to quickly leaving no lacing and barely a trace on the surface either.
I definitely get the pear, with a background of sweet malt and a hint of citric hops. Nice. I like it.
Light sweet malt and tart citrus with a fruitiness that powers through the back of the mouth. Some light bitter hops at time.
Lightly crisp. Medium light in body, yet there is a bit of syrup retention on the tongue. Light warmth in the throat. Slightly drying.
Very refreshing. The sweet, fruity and bitter aspects all seem more pronounced before the beer warms. A go to beer for a sticky hot summer night.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 5/27
Pours bright gold, clear, little foam. Bubbles actively rise to the top. Apple pear nose, atwixt bready malts. Fruit more notable. Taste is a light lager, but with a fuller noteworthy fruit. Blend in nicely to contribute without being pushy. Crisp pear finish. Good carbonation. Sessionable summer alternative.

Poured on tap at Churchkey into a Belcher glass.
Deep brass yellow body, quite clear but not totally crystal. Simple bone white collar presented on top as well.
For a beer accentuating fruit I am not smelling it. I get some more hints of a basic pale lager, no hint of hops even of noble variety or anything else. A good decent doughy malt backbone, quite dense and bakery large though. Not sure where this is going.
Once again a great lager brewery, but where is the pear in this? Good thick body, and that classic popping malt and dough flavor. Not particularly crisp, but certainly seems to hint of the white toasty bread and thick bread and yeast. Fruit forward not so much, and not really hinting of it either.
Overall if it was just a basic lager it's pretty solid, but where's the fruit quality on this? I am not getting it so I'll have to pass overall. But it is a well made lager.
