3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok this caught my eye today..never seen a Pils from Lagunitas until now.
came in a brown short neck 12 oz bottle usual simple but pleasing Lagunitas label..intresting script round the label.
nice looking pilsner..nice golden colour with a large crweamy white head..it goers down fast but leaves great lace.
smell is good but not exceptional..lot more maltiness than most pils though.
a good "thick" tasting pils..very nice reminds me of Starobrno..nice strong malt backbone for the hops to ride on.
Great on the tongue very intresting.
A most wonderful beer to drink..best from this brewery I have tasted..unsusal for a west coast brewer to do great lager

Bottle. Star colored with a decent head and very faint aroma. This is a very hoppy pils - probably too much so for the style. Fruity/spicey hops dominate, but give way to a slight metallic taste that's not unpleasant.

Bottled, no best before date. Pop the top and foam starts coming out. Need to sip a couple to keep the table clean. Pours with a great head that lasts and lasts. Doesn't taste like a standard Pils, tastes more like a steam beer. Nonetheless, the beer has citrusy hops and decent maltiness. Metallic tang as well. Sadly, this beer did not offer to clean my house. Nonetheless, I found it to be very easy to drink with enough character to comfort, if not delight.

A fine representation of the style. A touching bitter aftertaste makes me want to weep. Nice session beer as it is light and sinewy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw hue with good white head and very good lace. Faint sweet aroma with hints of german hops and pear. Crisp and bitter taste with undertone of sweet malt. Strange spicy finish. I expected more from the beer but alas I stand disappointed.

Pours a clear gold with a nice lasting white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is much hoppier than I expected. Good malt body with some hops for the flavor, a great lager. You know when macrobrews bill themselves as "crisp, clean, and refreshing?" This is what they mean.

A nice golden color with a decent yellow head. A somewhat malty aroma to it. Somewhat hoppy but not too much. Smooth and refreshing with a little aftertaste. All and all not bad!

Glowing horizon with a marshmellow head. A really nice earthy, touch of hops fresh bread aroma. Has a doughish quality to it with a slight hop aftertaste. Not bad at all for a pils.

Not a pilsner fan but here goes. Light yellow color. Very fizzy carbonation. Light refreshing after taste. I wouldn't drink it year round, but it is super tasty after you've just mowed the lawn on a hot day.
