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.

Bottle at Arnies in Akron. Poured into a pint shaker. Pours a golden clear with small head. Cereal, fresh cut grass and hay, and slight dankness. The taste is similar with grass, hay, and cereal grains. Light body, crisp. Not a bad Czech.

A: Ice cold gentle pour gives 1/2" of white bubbly head. Clear and pale gold with very large hence fast rising bubbles.Good retention and very nice lacing initially and as drunk.
S: MiId grass and dried hay aroma with sweet baked bread behind. Nothing elaborate or that need be.
T: Crisp flavors of lightly toasted white bread joined with faint herbal hop bitterness. The hops soon turn tart and faintly lemony. Nice, subtle and pretty well balanced. I do not get any alcohol at least as yet. Tartness perhaps turning a bit sour over time.
M: Light for the strength and crisp on the palate with a good level of carbonation. Finishes medium length and somewhat wet.
O: I expected good things from this and cannot say I’m disappointed except that I can’t get this in my hometown. Also slightly stronger than I prefer as I admit to becoming quite a lightweight in recent years. Nice beer overall and one i do recommend as a lover of pilsners.

Taste from a friend (tap) @ Cowgirl BBQ. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts and crisp fruits. Flavor is dry fruity malts with a hoppy finish. Excellent pils.

Clear lemon with little head. Minimal carbonation. Has that dry herby flavor typical of pils. Hops soapy and lingering.

I like pilseners - I practically grew up on them. This beer is almost as good as they get - give it a try, you'll enjoy it!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Vivid gold. Halo and some dollops of white head. Creamy, mildly spiced malts. Some toffee. Hint of grassy hop. Taste has a mild sweetness first off, turning spicy dry. Bit of a flabby mouthfeel. A bit sickly sweet toward the end. I didn’t get on too well with this. I maybe would have liked it more at it’s previous 5.3%. Great commercial description though.

I’m not an expert. For me it is nice beer that I can enjoy. I fill something like herbs. It may be a little bit woody.

Lagunitas PILS has a very thick, white head, heavy lacing left behind, and a mostly clear, gold appearance, with powdery sediment, throughout, and a few lazy, ascending bubbles. Aroma is of yeasty biscuit, and the flavor is of those two elements, riding alongside fairly bitter, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium, and Lagunitas PILS finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light clear yellow color with a corn aroma. Taste is bready, malty, and good corn malt flavor. A decent beer for the style, with your typical bitterness bite of aftertaste you get from European style beers.
