Appearance - Pours a clear, golden yellow with a white, finger width head which dissipates rather quickly, leaving behind a sparse lace.

Smell - Typical pilsner aromas here - sweet malt, and a dry grain aroma.

Taste - Moderately sweet malt, with a bit of dry, slightly bitter hop character.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body, crisp and dry. I feel it would benefit from a bit more carbonation.

Overall - Not a big pilsner fan, but this one is solid all-around.

I got this as part of a M&M 6pk from Everett's in South Beloit, IL. for $9.99 in early 2012.

Pours cloudy amber orange color with a slightly off-white head. There are some wheat, coriander, and citrus scents in the mix. Rather lighter in volume and fruity. The sweet flavors of citrus and wheat are the most noticeable. Slightly dry after taste that finishes a little chalky. I was expecting a little more being a Lagunitas product, but this still was decent and would make for a great summer drinking beer.

On-tap at Flanny's in Tempe, AZ.

A: Clear, golden yellow.

S: Dry, malty.

T: Great dry, lightly toasted malt. Clean, crisp.

M: Smooth but sharp, good carbonation, easy drinking.

O: Great example of the style. I'm not a huge fan of Pils because I haven't had the proper examples of the style, but I could drink this all the time.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear yellow-orange amber with a thin medium white head without retension, bu leaving a bit of lacing. Light aroma of grain and light malt. Taste is grainy with light malt but finishing with a mild hops presence that lingers as a herbal almost floral hop taste. Light to medium mouthfeel. Overall pretty understated, but I really like the finish on this one and would be happy to have it again. An average, decent Pilsner redeemed by the hop finish.

ST: Poured into a pint glass, bottle lists ABV but does not list a DBD.

A: Bright and clear (with a nice glow) lots of carbonation with a half-a-fingernail white head that has good retention.

S: Lemon, floral, and wet bread (weird smell I know).

T: Lemon, grapefruit, bitterness lingers on the tongue, sweet corn, and bread.

M: Medium and dry though creamy in the finish.

O: Refreshing but it could be crisper and needs more carbonation zing. It has a nice creamy finish but the finish can have a slight metallic taste. It does have a pretty color. This beer is great with Ramen.

Golden color, nice head, lacing down the side of the glass. Aroma smells like ‘beer’ to me, ‘hops’ to my wife. It’s the smell I associate with a domestic lager. Taste is tart on arrival, and leaves a little malty. Sweet aftertaste. Definitely reminds me of Sam Adams Noble Pils. I could drink a six pack of this in a night!

Overall: A-
