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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
