This beer pours nicely with the sweet notes of grains on the nose. This carries through to the taste, where the malt shines through and the undertones of hops manage to balance the beer. Even though it’s a Czech Pilsner, I would like to see the beer balanced in the way of the European hops over the malty sweetness. Overall it’s a well balanced sessional beer.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beer: Lagunitas Pils
Type: Czech Style Pilsner
Taste: soft, slightly sweet, serious golden malts, did they use any hops?, just delightful
Comments: Oh my that was good. When you take a sip and the next sound is ohhh mmm, you know something is being done right. I think they just might make my favorite pilsner. I prefer pilsners that focus on the malts vs overbearing hops. Lagunitas got this one right, for me.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a two finger white head, and a lot of carbonation dancing around. The aroma has grains, bread, and is sweet. The taste is very crisp, refreshing, and a little sweet with nice hop notes for a pilsner. The palate is very clean and bubbly. This is an excellent pilsner that hits the spot at the right time. A perfect alternative to standard awful pilsners.

Pours crystal-clear orangey gold with a big, white, soapy head. Aroma is straightforward grain with a tiny bit of hops. Taste is a bit sweet, nicely balanced with a very slight bitterness on the finish. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Solid, but I’ve had more exciting lagers. I don’t dig the description they gave this either.

12 oz bottle- Pours mostly clear golden with a thin soapy white head. Aroma is kind of sweet, grainy, sweetarts. The taste is similar, sweet, grains, light and crisp. Body is medium light and carbonation is medium high. This is okay, I do wish It was fresher, It just expired.

Gotta love Lagunitas. They put humorous notes on their bottles and they make phenomenal beer. Their Pils is one such example. True to Czech tradition this pils is hoppy and crisp, yet a little sweeter than its German counterparts. The graininess is smooth and flavorful. Of course, it’s very refreshing, too. In short, this lager doesn’t offer anything new to the style or have a lot of complexity, but it’s a great example of a great beer from a great company. Also, this is probably one the better examples of an American-made Czech Pils.
