I think I must have gotten a bad bottle. This was just awful. Starts off skunky, and finished with a overpowering metallic and bitter (not hoppy, but acrid) taste. I wanted to like this, but that finish will haunt me for a long time.

Very good for a pilsner. I tried it at the Columbus Winter Beer Fest, and didnt realize it was brewed with pear juice until looking online afterwards. That explains why it seemed a bit different than a normal pilsner I was expecting at the time.

Golden and crisp with a little bite making it a more interesting and drinkable beer. A little more bitters than a traditional Pilsner.
