Had this on tap at Gulfstream Seafood in Newport Beach. Clear dark yellow. Citrusy, hoppy aroma. Quite full bodied for a pilsner with mild bitterness. Sort of tastes like a APA/pilsner cocktail.

Bottle from J’s. Pours a clearish gold with a finger of foam that lingers a tad. Bready malt, faint grass and a touch of honey. Crisp and clean. Good body. Lemon and honey very faint. Peppery finish. Nice flavors.

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.

A snappy little pilsner. Light gold color with big white head of foam. Lemon zest, biscuit malt, and reserved florals. A great summertime guzzler.

I had this one in New York City, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last Saturday night. This must have been a really OLD sample because nothing about this one was good. To add injury to insult, it put me back $9.75! It also turned out to be the WORST day of my life. Wow.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle. The label says 6% alcohol by volume which is too high for a czech style pilsner, Pilsner Urquell has only 4.4%. The beer pours a deep golden color with a white head with good retention. The aroma is a mixture of floral hops and sweet malt. The flavor starts out with a pretty aggressive bitterness followed by a surprisingly thin body. At 6% alcohol, I would have expected much more. This is a decent American microbrewed pilsener, but it has very little in common with Czech beer. The hop is too dominant in both the aroma and flavor and the mouthfeel and body of a Czech lager are missing. Assuming that the brewers actually wanted to brew a Czech style pilsner, they have missed the mark by a long shot. This is yet another example of why not to buy a pseudo classic beer style brewed in the US:
