First, pilsners are not my go to style so take this review with a grain of salt and the knowledge that it may be more affected by my other tastes than it actually being true to style. First, it pours pretty much exactly like I would expect a perfect pilsner to: absolutely clear light golden with a fluffy white head that sticks to the glass, and perpetual effervescing bubbles rising from everywhere. Smell was pretty standard, a bit hoppier than most. Couldn't really pick out much pear odor. Taste has some pear sweetness up front, going to some bread and malt in the middle. Some faint spice and notes of tea left on the aftertaste. Feel is light, with crisp carbonation. Overall, for someone who doesnt' really like pilsners, this isn't bad. The hops and pear and subtle sweetness bring some good complexity. Definitely try if you are a fan of the style, and consider it if you're not!

A: Pours a clear gold with a thick, bubbly white head.
S: Aromas of lemon, grass, straw, minerals, biscuits, pear tea, hay, herbs, crackers, and rose water fill the nose.
T: Notes of rose water, pear juice, pear tea, leather, ripe lemon, crackers, biscuits, minerals, straw, hay, honey, herbs, and cream fill the mouth. The finish is dry and smooth with noticeable pear, cracker, biscuit, mineral, and lemon notes.
M: Very smooth and light-to-medium in body for the style. Carbonation is spritzy. Super easy to drink.
O: An awesome experimental pils. It will probably get downgraded a bit for being a Dogfish Head product, but this is a lager not to miss.
