4 oz. pour, on tap at Nutmeg Arden Hills. Consumed on 3-10-17. Clear, pale gold with a small amount of beige head. Nice, floral aroma. Green grape and champagne scents. Pleasant, pungent hops in the smell. Good, refreshing, dry flavor. Wood chips. A bit of cardboard, which isn’t ideal. Dry finish, which I like. Lively and smooth in the palate. Reasonably crisp but not as crisp as it should be. Fizzy. Pretty good pilsner but just a touch off.

12 ounce bottle. Honey gold color. Moderate frothy white head. Faint malty aroma has hints of melon, butter and honey. First sip yields a zesty mix of honey, citrus and crackers. Crisp, dry middle. Light, dry, hoppy finish. Androgynous Pils-like aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crisp, fresh pour on tap at Caddy’s in Beavercreek, OH.
Clear, light gold with quickly dissipating head. Nice floral hop aroma. Flavor is a perfect balance of crackery malt sweetness with a light readiness and elegant floral/spicy noble hops. Finishes with a medium bitterness. More like a strong German Pils than a Czech Pilsner, but outstanding beer when fresh and on tap!

Easy to see why this stands as Laguntas’ rare foray into lagerdom, since it’s a pretty unspectacular take on the style. Maybe they need more practice? Smells mildly of grain with slight hops. Tastes like a perfectly mediocre pilsner, corny and bitter, not sweet but soulless. A welcome hoppy herbalness pops up in the finish, and the light tartness on the fade shores up the back end. Still uninspiring, though.
