OK sure I dog these guys for their beers, but I keep having to try their new stuff that isn't crazy over priced. Call me a glutton for punishment if you will. however this one sounds pretty good.
Pours clear, golden, with a slight amber tint. The carbonation is moderate and white, thin.
Grains from a European malt bill, a bit of grassy hops, some lemon grass, and a bit extra sugar and fruit at the end. I get english hops with some american hop notes, perhaps pear juice is bringing out some citrus notes I associate with hops.
The flavor is classic pils with a fruity sweet finish. Still enough hops and grain bill here to balance whatever dogfish added very well. the end result is a very nicely done pils that both brings out the american citrus hops with more classic styles.
Very drinkable on a hot day....sadly this came out at the start of what appears to be a cold winter.
Call me a convert. This isn't great beer, but it sure as hell is very very good beer.
