3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a beautiful golden straw color. The head is barely off-white colored, and about two fingers high. Retention isn’t the best, but the way it settles in the glass betrays solid hoppiness. Lacing is spotty but thick in certain places. All in all, this looks really good in a glass.
S: The hops used here aren’t just grassy, they also have a citrusy/lemony bend to them. I also notice touches of sugar cookie-esque malts and some mineral notes. Good aroma, just one that could be a bit stronger (especially for 6.2%).
T: Initially, flavors of lemon and grass from the hops sweep the palate. A slightly sweet middle gives way to a dry back end with strong hard water notes. Slight buttery touches are prevalent throughout. I think it’s solid, but not as delicate or smooth as the best examples of the style.
M: This is really light and crisp, like a good pils should be. The faint hard water quality gives it an assertively dry finishing kick - meaning it goes down with superb ease.
O: While this is pretty good, Lagunitas didn’t fully nail this one. The drinkability is top notch, but in other aspects (balance, finesse, subtlety), I think the mark was missed. I’d definitely give this a second chance on tap, though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice 2" head with long lacing and crusty rings... crystal clear dark straw color.
Aroma is clean pale malts and spicy hops... smells very good.
Flavor is the same.. a touch of earthiness from the hops.

Pils nie do końca na wzor czeski. dla mnie to amerykański pils. Dominuja cechy typowe dla stanow goryczka lekka chmielowy bukiet amerykańskich chmieli. Malo bardzo mało slodowe. Wytrawnosc jest ok ale moglaby być bardziej ostra. Wyglad nie za specjalny srednia piana i mało trwala. w czeskich pilsach jest o wiele trwalsza i wieksza.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light gold with medium white head. Heavier mouthfeel than typical lager. More hoppy than expected making the bitter stand out more.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pils glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a clear gold color with a large white head. The aroma is mostly hops and some malt. The taste is fairly sweet malt with some hops. Another excellent beer from Lagunitas.
