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.

Tried every craft brewed pilsner I could find this summer and the Lagunitas pils was the winner.

Pours a finger of head on a clear golden body.
The aroma is dry grain. Nice.
The taste has a good lemon, slightly metallic, bitterness throughout.
The texture is crisp.
It's a solid pils.
