NOTE: I bought this 12 pack of 12 oz. cans in Beaumont, Tx. Pearl beer is not sold in Louisiana. Pearl has a thick, white head and a very clear, highly carbonated, golden appearance. Aroma is faint. The taste is mild, but has a roasted aspect, which prevents this beer from being bland. Mouth-feel is light and watery. It finishes crisp and satisfying. Overall, this is a very pleasant and enjoyable beer. I recommend trying it, if it can be found.

Damn, that's an old school can in that pic. pearl is one of those beers if you grew up in Texas you remember it well. One of my uncle's favorites. my cousins and I would sneak them out of his fridge in the garage lol. Its one of those beer i always go back to. especially if I'm having a BBQ and I know a lot will be consumed. Cheap and very drinkable.

Drank straight from the can.

A - honestly can't say since I enjoyed mine from the can. I am sure it is yellow and bubbly.

S - a little bland, slightly skunky

T - dry, a little sweet, citrusy metallic

M - watery and slightly dry with unpleasant after-taste

D - I drank mine because it was the cheapest of the light (only) beer available at a little back-woods bar in Jonestown, Tx. I give it this, it is cheaper than most, and it's tolerable, I question the alcohol content though...

Really quite good for an adjunct lager. Pour was a pale gold with a thin carbonated head. Lively carbonation with a clean flavor profile. Faintly sweet grain notes up front with enough hops to be present. Finish was very tight, but not dry or astringent. This would be an excellent lawnmower, beach or lake beer and calls out for hot weather.

Appearance: Clear light golden color with a small white head and profuse carbonation, the lacing is fairly good.

Aroma: Tart, sour aroma with some grain notes and a little attenuated hops.

Taste: Begins with tart malt flavors, these flow into a fairly strong citrus hop presence, which turns to a harsh and lingering metallic bitterness. The finish is somewhat dry.

Mouth feel: Sharp carbonation, the body is not as thin as would be expected, possibly the best characteristic of this beer.

Drinkability/notes: Hopefully, Pearl is not considered to be representative of Texas-brewed beer. Overall, it’s OK, but nothing great. I would also note that Pearl is despised among my macro-beer-drinking friends. It’s better than Natural Light, but who cares?
