Bottle. Pours a clear straw color, with a moderate head that dissipates quickly. Sweet aroma of grain, with a hint of hops and fruit - very clean. The flavor is less impressive - the typical pilsener grains and hops, with fruit (apple?) and caramel notes on the finish. It’s fine, but it’s neither particularly crisp/refreshing, or complex/interesting. The ABV is a bit higher than typical for the style, which doesn’t really come through in either a good or bad way.

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.

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. .

Aroma of pale malt, hay and grains. Flavour is light sweet with a nice moderate bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent, quite malty Pilsner.

Pilsig-gelb im Glas. Honignoten, pilsig, aber hopfig. Grasige Noten, typische Malznoten. So soll ein Pils sein.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale yellow, lingering head. Fairly it aroma at first.. though it dissipates fairly quickly. Generally reminds me of big breeds lagers but with more concentrated flavor. Nice hop bitter, a layer of breast yeast flavor, a little spice, floral. Finish is lightly bitter with a touch of must. Relatively full flavored for a lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Draft House at 6.2%. Slightly hazy yellow, very lightly sparkling, small foamy white head, decent lacing. Aroma is cardboard and lemony passionfruit. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is thin papery malts, a bit pungent, some caramel, bubblegum, crisp finish. It’s OK at best. There are lagers I’d prefer.
