look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light gold with a decent head into my glass. The use of pear juice and pear tea sounds interesting. I’m not sure how it will translate to the finished product though.

What do you know? The pear tea/juice and the saaz hops work well together in the nose. Just the right touch of sweetness.

Sweet, crisp and grainy with a good dose of pear. Tastes more like baked bread in the middle. Very tasty. Simple.

The use of pear rounds out this pilsener and makes it a good choice for quenching your thirst on a hot day. It works as a palate cleanser as well.

Well worth a try. I love a well-crafted pils.
