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 isn’t quite crisp enough.
Overall, a pleasing pilsener but I prefer several from European breweries. Nonetheless it would be quite pleasant during the summer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Crystal clear, bright yellow-golden colour with average to huge, fluffy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, snow-white head. Minimally grainy, pale malty aroma, grassy and minimally floral overtones. Taste is moderately but not too sweet pale malty, a touch of honey-covered cereals, mildly grassy and floral hoppy overtones, a good dose of citrusy hop as well. Very well balanced, precise, clean: superb drinkability.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Pub 819. Pint glass. Light golden color reminiscent of other pale domestic lagers. Very little head. Aroma is grain and cereal like a cheap beer. Taste is crisp and light with a grainy overarching feel. Hops are present but nothing citrus comes through. Tastes like a simple beer without a lot of excitement. Rare to see Lagunitas hold themselves back like this. Obviously chose other Lagunitas options...they are much better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I love how the description of the beer on this page has to clearly define a) what a pils is & b) how it is different from an ale. No wonder, given some of the reviews below that merely punish this beer with a low rating because "it’s not my style." So much for the well rounded beer critic. Have to say I’m a pretty big fan of this brew. Love the way it pours into the glass & how it offers the white as snow crown of foam on top. It’s a crisp & tasty & balanced pilsner. Highly recommended. I wish that a) I could get this in Toronto (I love a pilsner or two after a series of juicy IPAs) and b) that Canadian craft brewers could get a handle on this oh so unhip style & mark a variety of decent pils to choose from. Recommended. .

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of pale malt, hay and grains. Flavour is light sweet with a nice moderate bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent, quite malty Pilsner.
