12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, golden color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into no head what-so-ever.

Aroma: Pretty nice aroma. Toasted malt, imparting notes of whole wheat crackers and biscuits, accompanied by some hone, floral notes of clover, freshly cut grass and a lot of crisp, fruity pear and apple aromas. Very nice actually.

Taste: Pretty good! Strong flavors of semi-tart pears and apples up front, followed by some honey and caramel-like sweetness. Toasted malt flavors follow, imparting bready flavors of crackers and cereals, and/or English muffins. Finally, there’s a touch of nicely balanced floral, hoppy bitterness. I like it!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp, and nicely carbonated. With an ABV of 4.4%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a nice beer. I like the fruity, semi-tart pear flavors which meld very well with the tradition lager flavors of toasted malt and caramel-like sweetness. Think a pear cider that has been blended with a traditional lager. I’d definitely have it again. Another good beer from Devils Backbone, my favorite Virginian brewery!

I don't want to call this beer atrocious, but it's pretty bad. In fact, I haven't had one good beer from this brewery, and I decided to give them a second chance and buy a sampler pack. Bad call so far.
