A: This brew pours a golden yellow with a tall 3 finger head white head. It's clear and bright. Good head retention and nice lacing.
S: The aroma has a nice malt background but is overshadowed by a spicy floral hop profile. It's a nice balance of slight fruitiness tones with the pilsner malt holding it together.
T: The taste is much as it smells with a spicy nose and a slight peppery aftertaste. Not too sweet, not too bitter. A moderate amount of carbonation gives helps back up the hop spice. It's a bit more towards the dry end with a detectable acidic bite that I would expect from a pale beer.
M: A moderate mouthfeel, not slick. I detect an ever so slight chalky feel on the tongue but not enough to overpower the palate.
O: Overall this is a nice beer, certainly emblematic of the style. It's a nice palate cleansing brew that refreshes.

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.
