4.21/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy straw golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A bready, fruity, and earthy malt forward aroma with big hints of pear and grains. Pale malt with hints of grains, wheat, biscuit, straw, cracker, and yeast. Big hints of pear juice as well as some lemon, orange, and tea. Earthy and spicy Saaz hop hints along with some grass. Big with the fruity pear and citrus presence. A pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a fruity, bready, and earthy malt forward taste with good notes of pear, citrus, and grains. Upfront pale malt with bready notes of grains, straw, biscuit, wheat, yeast, and cracker. Big presence of pear juice. Citrus fruit notes of lemon and orange. Some tea notes as well. Spicy and earthy Saaz hops along with some grassy hop notes. Very crisp and zesty. Pretty good tasting.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and pretty smooth.

Overall: A pretty good twist on a Pilsener. Good grainy malt notes with a very nice juicy kick from the added pear.

4.25/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a pils glass.

4.25 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. One finger of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is good and a large ring of lacing is left.

4.25 S: Quite an interesting take on the pils. Grainy neutral maltiness. Grassy and earthy hops. A touch of herbalness. Pear complements extremely well.

4.25 T: Taste is just as good. The pear comes out more prominently in the taste and again it fits right in. Grainy neutral maltiness. Grassy and earthy hops. Well done.

4.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.

4.25 D: I'm surprised how good of a beer this is. It wouldn't be an everyday pils, but its a damn good stray from the norm.
