The Lagunitas Pils is a friendly afternoon beer. It has a similar hoppy profile true of many Lagunitas beers, but has it's own frothy flavor.

Color and appearance are top-notch. Great smell upon opening the bottle.

The taste is hop-driven with a lot of balance. It's more traditionally american-style beer with a lot of west-coast indications. Obtuse label, low-price, piney hops, and not much malt flavor. It is not a beer that sticks in your craw -- the taste quickly dissipates and requires more beer application.

Good solid beer. Worth investigating.

Recommended with disc golf, bocce, gardening, rock-skipping, softball, outdoor concerts, beaches, open windows, loud stereos (suggest at least a six-pack for any of the above).

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Beautiful crisp light yellow color with a thick head about two fingers length and dissipates slowly. Head retention is strong and sticky lacing coat the glass. Pours absolutely beautifully.

Aroma was hard for me to pick up. Grass notes prevalent, but really couldn't get anything else. It does smell fresh though, which is good. Taste is crisp and clean. Light and smooth. Easy to drink and all around enjoyable. Had this after a long hot day and it just hit the spot. This is a simple, straightforward, and well-executed pilsner.
