3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Experienced on tap in a shaker glass. The beer pours a lightish amber color, with a low white head. The nose shows a touch of traditional bready malt character, but lacks the floral hop aroma found in classic examples of the style. Instead, the aroma almost resembles a macro-brew, rather than a traditional Czech pilsner. The palate is malt-forward up front, showing a slight, if noticeable, residual character of pilsner malt. Hops come in to balance, but again seem somewhat short. Mouthfeel is fine. Carbonation is perhaps a touch low, but suitable to this drinker’s preferences. The finish is quite clean, leaving a very slight lingering bitterness on the palate. Overall, perhaps a sample that had gone through more age than intended, as it falls somewhat short of expectations.

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.
