Average pils nothing special which is not a bad thing. Crisp and bubbly. And what makes it Czech style? Haha

This is not a true pilsner. The aroma is strongly hoppy but with a weird grapefruit note. The color is straw but a shade darker than continental pilsners; the head is thick and retains well. The taste is not grainy enough; the malts are too thick and heavy and the hops come through in a cloying manner. The beer could be an alright lager, but it is no Czech pilsner.

Golden in color it has a typical lager aroma. It has more of a bite with the flavor and a bit more complexity.

On tap at Blackthorn Pub, Holly,MI..fantastic rendition of Czech Pils...dry crisp and clean this is what (I think anyway) what a Pils/lager should be and is in fact what it used to be before the mega-corporations turned it in to the Butt Lite swill of today. Thanks Lagunitas for making this style awesome again!

Clean and clear light gold, which pours a big head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is very mild, it reminds me of what I thought beer was when I was growing up. This is a clean, crisp and easy going down beer that is refreshing. There is a slight floral bouquet with some sweetness as well as a wheat flavor. For a pilsner this is a pretty good beer, smooth and refreshing. I would drink this beer again, it’s worth a shot. ($8.99 a six pack)

Fresh aroma of citrus hop and floral medley. Definite banana and clove as well. Slight prickly bitterness on the front. Mellows out and left with some alcohol, malt and more hop.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It may be called a czech style pilsner, but it is still distinctly American. It’s good, but too hoppy and harsh. Pours with a thin head, and a deep yellow color.

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.
