A-Pours a clear glowing golden hue. Head is foamy and firm. Light lacing speckles are left along the glass.

S-Pils to the core, but the hops truly stand out. Saaz hops combine with a pleasant cracker malt character. Americanized, but still Pils-y. Quite nice.

T-Hop forward Pils with sturdy floral and grass notes. Mild sweetness and a tiny hint of spice pair with the Noble hoppiness. Easy to enjoy.

M-Fuller bodied for the style. 6.2% is nearly undetectable. The clean grassiness of the hops lend moderate bitterness.

O/D-A pretty nice Pils by Lagunitas. Not my favorite style, and not my favorite Lagunitas brew, but its tasty and it goes down clean. Another success here. Lagunitas...so solid, so dependable.

Golden color, slight hazy. Tons of small bubbles rising. Fairly nice bright white head.

Aroma is light. I get sweet pale malts, spicy nobel hops, pear.

Flavor starts off sweet pale malts, grassy and spicy hops, a little hint of fruitiness, crisp-bitter finish. Body is light-medium, well carbonated.

12oz Bottle from the Potsdam NY IGA for 2.50$

Appearance - Clear gold colour with an above average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an above average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for 5+ minutes.

Smell - Malts, breads/grains, metallic, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and corn mixed with some herbal notes. There are some dry hop notes but not much. It ends with a grainy/herbal type aftertaste.

Overall - I was really hoping for some noble hop flavours. I was quite surprised that this is just a fairly boring euro-lager type tasting beer. Not what I expected from the usually over the top Lagunitas.
