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.

From a 12 oz bottle.
This cloudy amber brew has a fairly good head and a surpisingly smooth and full feel. Fruity, although the specific contribution from pears is a bit subtle. A little more bitter and tart than sweet.

nice yellow-gold color with a nice white head. smell is sweet with some citrus and bread. The taste has some sweet, some hops and is crisp and clean with plenty of carbonation. The flavor is bold and leaves you with a satisfied feeling after drinking
