4/5  rDev +10.2%

Poured into a canned shape glass because I don't have a pils glass. Fail.

The body is a beautiful transparent golden color. Trickles of carbonation are visible. The head is foamy, pale white and full of bubbly suds and lace. 4.25

A pungent yet earthy hop aroma hits the nose. There's biscuity malt, cracker, and floralness. 4

Sweet and bread-like initially, then a burst of zesty, floral hops make an entrance. Straightforward and good.
4

Sweet like I mentioned, with a medium-body and average carbonation. It's pleasant to drink. The finish is bitter in a tame and non-offensive way. 3.75

This is a good easy-drinker. Seems pretty true to style. I could drink a sixer of this on a summer day easy. 4.0

Trust Lagunitas to nail the Pilsner style. Doughy, bready malts with an all to dominate Pilsner malt aroma. The flavor is fuller than most in this style with a grainy, malty texture, and great dry Pilsner malt taste. The feel is very crisp and Light but it has that fullness than you don't find in many lagers. Lagunitas keeps doing right!

BOD 111/14. Clear golden pour with exceptional head, lacing and retention. Nice nose of slightly sweet biscuit over hops that have notes of spice and tropical. Light medium body that manages to be almost slick in texture. While it appears to be well carbonated (bubbles), it fails to effervesce on the finish in a lively fashion, hence it is normal carbonation level. The flavor profile has some complexity and is well balanced, unfortunately it doesn't scream saaz hops. It begins with a slightly sweet spice that flows into mild bitterness. The middle has a tropical rind like citric note. The finish is biscuit with a low level lingering bitterness with notes of spice. Very good, but not quite outstanding.

Really like this one. Poured beautiful, nice thick head that stayed and had good lacing. Beautiful clear yellow/white foamy head

Aroma is very mild, background hops, some malt…I think just right for the style

Taste is crisp and refreshing, again just the right amount of hops….they did a great change up and showed the respect to the form needed.

Mouthfeel is fairly light to moderate, but the finish is more than expected. Just enough bitterness to show the roots of this style.

Overall, I will look to Lagunitas again…this was my first beer from them, and I really enjoy it when the American Craft brewers put effort into Pils, and other lager types. Well done!
