The Beers of California

#4

Freshness Date: None

A: Pours pis yellow, mostly transparent, with a finger of effervescent white foam.

S: The nose is of earth along with a significant component of grassy herbalness.

T: Strong elements of earth which is suggested by the nose. The malt is light, consisting of crackers, grain and hints of hay. The hops impart floral, herbal, and grassy flavors to the beer along with hints of orange rind ending with a mild bitter, spicy finish.

M: Crisp and light in the mouth with moderate to high prickling carbonation.

O: A descent take on the pilsner style although overall this brew falls short. A refreshing drink for a warm day.

The Lagunitas Pils is a friendly afternoon beer. It has a similar hoppy profile true of many Lagunitas beers, but has it's own frothy flavor.

Color and appearance are top-notch. Great smell upon opening the bottle.

The taste is hop-driven with a lot of balance. It's more traditionally american-style beer with a lot of west-coast indications. Obtuse label, low-price, piney hops, and not much malt flavor. It is not a beer that sticks in your craw -- the taste quickly dissipates and requires more beer application.

Good solid beer. Worth investigating.

Recommended with disc golf, bocce, gardening, rock-skipping, softball, outdoor concerts, beaches, open windows, loud stereos (suggest at least a six-pack for any of the above).
