12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Crystal clear, deep golden color with a white head. Couple fingers worth, disappears after a short while along with the lacing.
Biscuity malt is the primary aroma - straightforward as many lagers are.
Grainy, lager flavor. Hops are present, but provide mostly balance. Slight sweetness, grassy hints as the beer settles in your mouth. A mix of hoppy bitterness and grainy dryness lingers in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is moderate-bodied, medium carbonation - fairly smooth.
Not a particularly complex beer, but a rich enough lager with bold enough flavors that cooperate well and keep things engaging. This is a nice beer when I want to "take an evening off" from blasting my palate with big, bold beers. Sometimes you just want something simple and straightforward, but not crappy. This is a good choice, although there are others.

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.
