Not very excited by this offering, I’m usually very happy with the offerings from Lagunitas but this one falls flat. The buttery finish takes away from what could have been a lovely beer. All I get is butter and bubbles.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An hazy golden pils with a thick creamy white head with lacing. Aroma is more caramel and berries than Krusovice, with light floral C-hops. In mouth, a good malt, with floral hops, crisp nature, short on malt, long on hops, veering towards the California ale. Good, but not exactly a pils. Bottle from Presario in AB, late nov. 2006.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
My bottle (thanks Cornfield) might be a tad beyond the "best by" date. My sample was under-carbonated by style. Way too creamy textured, which covered up any hints of hop bite there might once have been. Slight herbal continental hops, noticably mainly in the finish. I’m left with mainly a caramel/toffee maltiness and a big creamy mess that is very, very forgettable. Not impressed with this one, at all!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a bright golden with a foamy white head. Aroma is a little bland but some crisp hops are in there with some average malts. Flavor is much better. A bit of piney hops with notes of biscut and a dry finish. Very tasty and could be better than the original.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Draft at Jerry’s. Golden with decent, creamy, white head / Nose of honey, grain, and cream / Medium body, soft carbonation, relatively sweet and malty, but well balanced by the bitter, finish / Big flavors of clover honey, grass, and grain / Good, but probably a bigger style than desirable for a pils.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: Crystal clear pale yellow color with smallish pure white head. Aroma has fair amount of honey, faint noble hops, touch of white grapes. Flavor is subdued, touch of malt, bit of honey, with a fairly clean finish and a noticable but not quite firm bitterness. This is fairly good, not super special, but then again I’m not much of an expert in lagers in general.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden pour, with a diminished head...no lace. A grainy spiced nose predominates. The flavors are similar, with grains, yeast and lemons. A hopped grain finish combines with the remaining citrus to make a lightly bready mouthfeel. Its a decent sessionista, but not very complex, and a bit unilateral.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear pale yellow with a frothy bone white head. The aroma is grassy, husky, spicy and clean - quite nice. Medium body that is crisp and has a fresh cut grassiness, grainy clean malt and some spicy hops. The finish has even more of a spicy hop presence. It is not the most complex beer, but its not a very complex tasting style. What is here is done very well and is a great interpretation of the style. Thumbs up for a quality pils that I’m glad is finally in my area of the country - a good pils was not easy for me to come by.
