Light, crisp and refreshing, Pt. Bonita bridges gaps between beer, food, and lifestyle.

Pours a finger of head on a clear golden body. The aroma is mostly honey and some dry grain. The taste has a mild bitter start, honey sweetness and rye spice in the middle, finishes with a mild bitter note. The texture is light and fizzy. Quite nice.

Golden color with a white head. Noble hop aroma and flavor alongside bready malt and a slight spiciness. Finish has a lasting hop spice.

Draft. Freaking LEGENDARY APPEARANCE, clear as hell and golden with crazy bubbly action. Grassy hoppy pilsner aroma, pretty nice and crisp. Great dry and biting flavor with pilsner malt base yielding to huge grassy hops. Legit. Dry and lively on the palate. Really good for a beer of this type.

16oz can. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Crisp and very drinkable. Rye comes through. It's decent but not very memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
