12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a medium lasting white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet fruity pear notes, biscuit malt and some herbal hops. Taste is same as aroma with some herbal hops bitter notes. A medium crisp body on the palate, lively carbonation, goes down smooth. The finish has a sweet fruity pear like flavor, biscuit malt and herbal hops bitterness for balance. This brew is nicely balanced not too sweet not too hoppy, a just right combination. Overall a uniquely flavored but tasty session brew and refreshing. Try it.

This pils poured a light yellow straw like color with soapy like white head and nice lacing.
Nose of light fruit, mild hops, and sweet light caramel malts. Flavors follow in line with the
nose. Pears come through on the aftertaste with light hops and a mild sweetness to the sides.
Though this is not a perfect pils it works fine after mowing the lawn. Nice carbonation and
clean finish has this one as a nice change of pace being balanced with the unique pairing of the
pears.
