look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer is a clear yellow with a 1-finger, tiny-bubbled white head. Minimal spider-webby lacing. Nose is extremely bready up front, followed by apricot, citrus, earthy hops and a bit of malt. The aroma gets a bit grassy as the beer drinks down. A crisp, caramel sweetness transitions to hops, crackery malt and then back to sweet. It seemsto be a little too much on the sweet side, but is a fairly well-balanced nonetheless. Medium body with light carbonation, a little oily on the tongue. I thought the finish would be crisper, but it is slightly wet. It doesn’t seem terribly indicative of a Pils, though a decent drink. I would have it again, but wouldn’t rave about it.

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).
