One thing I love about the Summer is that the show “Tiny House Hunters” comes back on HGTV. I do not understand why people would want a tiny house. Our house isn’t huge, but I could not live in 200 square feet. When Val and I watch it, we usually just yell at the tv since people have some crazy requests for their tiny house (i.e. “I want my canopy bed to fit in it,” or “I want a full-sized bathtub,”).
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A revitalizing combination of pear and lager, this thirst quenching beer is light to medium in body and refreshing in character with a subtle pear flavor and aroma. Pear, Quaffable, Fresh.”
Random: This is a Summer seasonal from Devil’s Backbone.
The beer poured with a hazy, yellow body with some floaties that were visible. The head was one finger high and white in color. It dissipated quickly, but left very little lacing on the glass. The nose started with some biscuit malt, but quickly transitioned into pear flesh and crushed apples. There was some lager yeast as well. The taste was clean. It started with some tart, Granny Smith apples and then went into biscuit malt. The presence of pear was minimal, which was a bit disappointing. It reminded me of pear jelly beans. The body was on the light side with generous carbonation. The finish was quick with crushed apples. A can of this was $1.67, which broke down to $.14 per ounce. I thought this beer was alright, but if you’re going to call it a pear lager, it needs more pear notes.
