look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Poured a solid finger of bumpy eggshell head, body is a perfectly clear gold, head recedes to a broken cap in a few minutes but still leaves nice webbed lacing that coats the glass.
Smell - Mmmmm. freshly baked bread, whole grains, lightly roasted malts, crispy biscuits, touch of pear - really smells nice.
Taste - Oh is this complex and flavorful, perfectly balanced - Freshly baked bread, crisp crackers and biscuits, roasted malts with malt sweetness, light pear and apple, light floral and meadowy hops, touch of dried grass and hay, and some nice minerals. There is a wonderful bready malt sweetness along which all of this rides...
Mouthfeel - Lighter side of medium, really smooth and drinkable, medium carb provides a wonderful brightness and crispness, finisnes just slightly dry and bitter, very satisfying and refreshing.
Overall - What a nice, balanced and complex czech pils. Great flavors, very satisfying, but without being filling or heavy in the least. Sweetness is muted and very complimentary to all of the other flavors here, highly recommend.

Poured into Lagunitas Jar.
A - Golden lager looking.
S - Smells Belgiany?
T - Yep, taste a little like a Belgian Golden Ale to me and not so much a Pilsner. Bready with citrus and I was honestly looking forward to some hop bitterness being a Lagunitas but I didn't get much, although it does have a spicey hit.
M - Punch of carbonation upfront. Smooth down with that spiciness towards the end.
O - It's my least favorite Lagunitas and they're my favorite brewery. It's not horrible but not what I was expecting from them. Not that I'm huge Pilsner fan anyway, but there are definitely better options, even from California.
