3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a thin crystal yellow with a pile of white foam on top, I’m used to a hazier appearance with this style. Nothing too special in the aroma, pretty much just yeasty lager. Doesn’t look or smell special, but thankfully this is actually good to drink. Doughy malts with plenty of spicy, continental herbal hops and a lingering aftertaste of grassy honey. A little too much alcohol for the style drags it down a bit. Thick and smooth body. Decent craft pils, but I would recommend just drinking this out of the bottle.

Light spicy hop nose, golden pour from 12oz bottle. Couple fingers of foam that dissipates pretty quickly. Not much lacing. Clean with a tangy spicy hop finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light yellow golden with white head. Taste is lemon citrus, small bite of carbonation and hop in the middle. Finish is a lingering malt and hint of hop. Very refreshing with a west coast feel.

"an earthy example of a bohemian pils. clean grassy aroma and flavor. with a nice malt strain in there as well. goes down smooth and easy. solid, but not a standout."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Filtered pale yellow-tan body. Thin, glass rimming head. Has a pretty classic doughy brewhouse aroma. The taste is a little on the sweeter side than say, Pilsner Urquell. I’m not sure why they would up the ABV to 6...seems to not really fit the style so well, almost gives it a Strong Pale Lager thing going on. Still has a nice true taste, better than most US Pils of any variation. Doughy, earthy lager notes. A subtle beer, probably not one I’d seek out again, but a nice addition to the Lagunitas line up for sure.

Yikes... way to sweet and grainy. Can barely drink it. First pilsner in a long time, but not for me.

Clean & crisp crisp taste and look. Very much a pilsner beer, a little light on taste. Clear orange hue and light white head.
