3.3/5 rDev -8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle with no apparent bottled on date present. The label on my bottle says this beer is packing a 6.0% abv as opposed to the 6.2% suggested on BeerAdvocate.
Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a standard amber / gold looking pilsner / lager looking color with tons of bubbles rushing around and leaving us with about one finger's worth of fluffy doughy draft looking head. Nice fluffy lacing on the sides as the beer goes down.
S - Clean, pale malts, faint citrus, and some very vague note of smoked oak wood perhaps. Not too much happening on the nose.
T - Smooth, light, roasted malt flavor. Slight hint of sweet piney hops are present in the back end, but not overwhelming by any means. Noticeably spicy and peppery in the finish, but again it is faint and not distracting. A pleasant sipping beer. Again, a slight oaked wood character creeps out as the beer warms a bit.
M - Smooth and clean feel, no real lingering flavors. Nicely bodied, nicely balanced, and a nice beer to sip on.
Overall, a modest pilsner from Lagunitas, the first I have tried from them, as opposed to being partial to their more hoppy endeavors, and I can definitely say this is a beer worth trying if you are into pilsners and lagers.
