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.

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.

Clear gold with a frothy white head.
Grass, slight lemon scent.
Taste is mildly bitter-sweet pils....
Decent, but rather dull.

Transfer from BA review on 7-31-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a golden color with a two finger pure white head. The head is on the slightly thicker side and has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of a grainy and bready nature with a little bit of caramel and light fruit as well as a light hop smell. The hop is of a grassy and lemony nature creating a dry and more crisp smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a drier bready flavor mixed with a bit of grassiness and some light fruity sweetness which creates a base for the brew. As the flavors advance more lemon hop bitterness and some light grassiness comes to the tongue. This mix of flavors, with the dwindling of a bit of the sweetness and some increase in the lemon and some grassy hop, together leave a crisp and more dry grainy and lightly hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner to more average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are quite appropriate for the style and make for a rather easy drinking brew.
Overall – Fairly easy drinking and rather refreshing, but nothing too out of the ordinary for a pils.
