On tap at Georgio's Pizzeria in South Barrington to pint. Pours yellow with fine bubble carbonation. Excellent malt bitter balance with some mint character.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, grain and citrus. Taste is malts, yeast and a nice bitterness.

Really nice pils. Yellow in color with some gold. Straight up fresh crisp hops. Pale malts are there but donít measure up to the hops. Good beer for hops lovers. Light and easy.

Aroma is bready malts and a hint of citrus hops. The flavor is grainy malts, a hint of fruit and a low but hoppy finish.

12 oz. leftovers. Excellent and effervescent little pils that just perks me right up. Very smooth with a hoppy robustness to give it teeth. Not much in the aroma department but Iím still a little snotty so that could be my fault.

Bottle. Pours a clear straw color, with a moderate head that dissipates quickly. Sweet aroma of grain, with a hint of hops and fruit - very clean. The flavor is less impressive - the typical pilsener grains and hops, with fruit (apple?) and caramel notes on the finish. Itís fine, but itís neither particularly crisp/refreshing, or complex/interesting. The ABV is a bit higher than typical for the style, which doesnít really come through in either a good or bad way.

Pours clear golden with a large white head. Smells subtle with hints of malt and hops, basic but classic. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness. Light-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Lagunitas Pils finishes with a faint corn-like sweetness.

Overall really liked this beer 12 oz bottle. Crisp and clean could drink a few of them. Average carb, thin and light.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A good version of a pilsener. A nice bouquet on the nose. Some malt mixed with a fruity aroma. Light and very little hops. Pours a somewhat yellowish orange and very clear. Pours with a thin white head and very little lacing. Taste is full of fruit such as apple and some pear perhaps. Lots of malt and very light on the hops. Itís a very drinkable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear light gold with a thin soapy head that quickly fades. Really no lacing either but there are tons of carbonation bubbles helping to keep a little foam on top.
Aroma is definitely to style. Almost a little skunk with lots of noble hops and grass. A little bit of bready grain sneaks through.
Flavor has lots of floral noble hops up front and sweet, bready grain. I can almost detect a tiny bit of roast on the back end. Bitterness is sharp and pleasant although there is a little more sweetness than I would like and it isnít quite crisp enough.
Overall, a pleasing pilsener but I prefer several from European breweries. Nonetheless it would be quite pleasant during the summer.
