Our Bohemian Pilsner is highlighted by the spiciness from the rye (15%). It has just enough noble hop character and body from the rustic grains to remind you you’re drinking a beer. Light, crisp and refreshing, Pt. Bonita bridges gaps between beer, food, and lifestyle.

3fourths (8808) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Notes from GABF. Can. Clear gold with a short white head. Saint lemon-pepper noble hops, mineral water / calcium, malt is faintly husky, corn-like, quiet but noticeable must / concrete off-notes. Medium-light bodied, light to moderate sweetness, chewy sugars are enjoyable, hops are overly bitter for balance, texture is lightly starchy. Finishes as cracked pepper, lemon, herbs, faint toasted grain, though not very complex, and there’s some coarseness to the carbonation. Still it’s a decent quaffer, slightly above average for American-made lager.

RichardGretton (4471) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Can. Golden beer with a light head and a bubbly body. The aroma is dry with a hint of fruitiness, and the flavour is very dry and hopped with some mellow yeastiness. Overall a nice well hopped Pilsner style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (7165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2015
16 flipping ounce can from Beers of Europe. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Aromas of lemon and lime, light malt. Taste is more lemon and lime, not much rye character, or lager character for that matter. Nice beer though!

marcus (8008) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
16 oz can from bhensonb. Pours clear golden with a thick white head and a light floral aroma. There is a bitter light malt flavor, heavy on the rye, and a dry finish. A refreshing drink with an unusually bitter touch for a pilsener.

bhensonb (12968) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Can from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Pours Pours gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is bready, spicy, and maybe a touch earthy. Med body or nearly. Flavor is fairly spicy, decently bitter, and rye seems detectable. Rye comes forth more with a little time. Tasty.

joeneugs (4593) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 2, 2015
16 oz. can. It pours a nice clear rich golden color with a disappearing fizzy off white head. The aroma is a bit underwhelming with some malt and light corn sweetness. Hints of noble hops, but I was hoping for more of a bouquet. The flavor is better with strong toasted and lightly sweet malt, very spicy, earthy/floral hops and a dense, malty body. It finishes very bitter for the style, but not overbearing. The oily mouthfeel from the rye complements the strong hop flavor. Actually quite enjoyable in the end.

Fatehunter (1829) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2014
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.
