I don't want to call this beer atrocious, but it's pretty bad. In fact, I haven't had one good beer from this brewery, and I decided to give them a second chance and buy a sampler pack. Bad call so far.

Pours straw color with foamy head that dissipates quickly.

smell is grainy with some pear. Taste is grainy, almost like an AAL, with pear with a nice balance of sweet and tart to start. Feels light, with strong carbonation, but feels a little sticky. Overall, worth trying, but not a huge fan.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, golden color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into no head what-so-ever.

Aroma: Pretty nice aroma. Toasted malt, imparting notes of whole wheat crackers and biscuits, accompanied by some hone, floral notes of clover, freshly cut grass and a lot of crisp, fruity pear and apple aromas. Very nice actually.

Taste: Pretty good! Strong flavors of semi-tart pears and apples up front, followed by some honey and caramel-like sweetness. Toasted malt flavors follow, imparting bready flavors of crackers and cereals, and/or English muffins. Finally, there’s a touch of nicely balanced floral, hoppy bitterness. I like it!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp, and nicely carbonated. With an ABV of 4.4%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a nice beer. I like the fruity, semi-tart pear flavors which meld very well with the tradition lager flavors of toasted malt and caramel-like sweetness. Think a pear cider that has been blended with a traditional lager. I’d definitely have it again. Another good beer from Devils Backbone, my favorite Virginian brewery!
