3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden to orange. Medium hoppy, light malty and a bit fruity aroma with tones of hay, light grass, light citrus, tiny pepper-ish, apricot, bread and hint of caramel. Tiny oily and hints of dough. Some subtle spices. Bread like malt and a decent amount of light peppery hops in the flavour with tones of citrus, grass and hay. Light sweet and light to medium bitter. A bit dry. Light to medium body. Very fresh but a bit to citric too be a real Czech style pilsner.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at Corral Liquors in Granite City, IL. Pours a sparkling light gold with a lot of rising bubbles and a frothy off-white head that diminishes, leaving wispy lacing on the glass; a picture perfect pilsner. The nose is bready/biscuity with a nice floral hop backing. The palate is light to medium-bodied, slick and lively, finishing very cleanly. A rounded pilsner malt front segues into a lightly bitter and clean finish with just a touch of hop bitterness lingering on the tongue. I found this to be an excellent pilsner, and if/when it becomes readily available in my area, I will purchase it frequently.

Thanks to brewblackhole. Yellow color. Smell of grain, hops, minor pine, vegetable and earth. Tastes the same but also the with the taste of bread and some lemons. Ok for a hot summer day.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 Still having a like-not-love relationship with Lagunitas. I’ve been really digging pilsners since the weather’s turned warm, and have been impressed with a number of American variations on classic styles. While this one is solid and likable, there’s something about their use of the czech malts that makes it almost buttery. I want the complexity, the spicy bite, and crispness, and there’s not quite enough of any of them for me here.

Aroma is what I assume to be Czech Malts and hops ,very cerealy and grainey, taste is grain malt and biscuity hop,hop taste lingers around on back of tongue. Those odd tasting hops are somewhat dominating for a pilsner style,but its fine

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was white and stuck around for a while. Aroma was of molasses and subdued toffee with some noble hops in the background. There was a slight metallic note that detracted a bit. Fairly effervescent. Caramel, molasses, and husky grain flavors. Finished with mild hop bitterness that lingered.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12-oz. Wow, what a shockingly unsuccessful effort. Pours a reddish golden amber with a thin white dab of foam that falls to spotty suds. Endless fast-rising bubbles. Huge boiled vegetable and wet cardboard nose. Watery body, hyper-aggressive carb, messy vegetal and cardboard mid-palate followed up by a rather nice splash of peppery and slightly resinous hops. Nothing about this is pleasant, but I’d love to have tried what they had in mind with these aggressive west coast hops in a bohemian.

Medium to thin bodied, simple biscuit malt character with muted hop flavor and minimal bitterness. Very refreshing lawnmower beer - keep it cold.
