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.

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!

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
