Light, crisp and refreshing, Pt. Bonita bridges gaps between beer, food, and lifestyle. Grain bill: Pilsner, 2-row, Rye malt, & Munich Hop bill: Liberty, Crystal, & Saaz Food Pairing: Sushi & other seafood dishes; Margherita pizza, & Thai cuisine.

From a pint can. Pours a dull gold with a finger of head. Mainly smells like caramel. Pretty sour for a pilsner, bitter and hints of sweetness. Not bad, but got pretty tired of drinking it by the end.

A very nice crisp and flavorful pilsner. Enough going on in the nose to get your attention. Rye spice and noble hops and a crisp malt sweetness as well. Well done in a style I can pass usually.

Big pillow of rocky white foam on a deep golden beer with good clarity. Aroma is light to light medium full, Old World earthy, herbal, nut spice, pepper, hint of citrus, evoking pond water, campground dust. light medium feel, light carbonation, round feel, finishing medium bitter, very lightly astringent. Delicious. Might add some carbonation for a truly great beer.

Definitely a bold take on bohemian pils. The rye pops out and supports the hops. Solid hop bite on the finish. Can tell they treated the water, softer than most pils, more body. Got this at Belcampo after trying the Groupe G. Very refreshing. Going to try their Hill 88 next.

Poured from a can. Clear gold. Quickly disappearing head. Malty aroma. Tart with some spice. Sweetness toward the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ever wondered what a Budweiser would taste like if it actually tasted good? Thatís this beer. Itís easy to drink, but has some depth that most other pilsners lack - which is why I donít normally like pilsners. Highly recommended with burgers or after a long trail run.

Pt. Bonita pours a very clear yellow with loads of bubbles rising to the top. A slightly sweet bread aroma on the nose. Taste is brusque upfront. A tang of hop bitterness and carbonation that wakes you up. A little viscosity rounds the mouthfeel out. Solid malt taste here. And a little zing of lemon at the tail end. Quite nice.

Pours yellow with a white head. Malt, grass and hop aroma. Malt, hop, slight fruit, grain and mild spice flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Crisp fruity finish.

Cloudy orange yellow. Light fruity scents. Big fruity tartness but still smooth for a pils. Good mellow.
