Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue VII:
Lagunitas is right--lagers deserve just as much respect as ales do (see their website).
Bright, shimmering, pale golden color with a perfect clarity, sturdy two fingers of head, and decent head retention. Spicy hop, cracker maltiness, mineral salt and a faint sulfur note in the aroma. Smooth moderate-bodied mouthfeel. A bite from the carbonation and hops brings a spicy, sharp bitterness to start. Grainy with a dried grass, bread crust and metallic or coin flavor. Small nugget of sweetness. Hint of lime rind and more dried grass middle to end. A touch of drying, puckering grain and faint herbal spicy hop in the finish.
Not bad at all, though a little rough around the edges for a lager; without a doubt, still quite tasty.
