look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Self-served at 40 degrees fahrenheit. Poured into a tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: A clear gold with a foamy inch high head which gradually faded to a nice foam film surrounded by a ring and substantial lacing. Clearer with a darker hue than the Shorts of Michigan Czech style pilsener I had yesterday.

s: Mild malt.

t: A nice blend of malt and hops produces a quality beer taste.

m: Moderate, more heft than most pilsners but appropriately smooth.

o: A fine representative of the style and an excellent summer brew.

Lagunitas has yet to disappoint. Love their distinctive old timey stubby bottles too. I have another fine Little Sumpin Sumpin Ale to review soon. When I had one in May I was not yet writing reviews on BA. I am also looking forward to Maximus and Censored. Oh and Undercover Investigation Shutdown Ale is another lovely one I want to review here which I also had before BA, and which suddenly seems to be hard to find on local shelves

This is a nice Czech style Pilsner.
Apperance: golden with nice white head but no lacing
Smell: Czech hop smell and straw like sent
Taste: crisp clean and bitter character expected from a Pilsner, hop prescience is ago adequate and a sulphur quality
Overall a nice Pilsner

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Julian date 088....

A- Pours a clean medium golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that doesn't retain long before decomposing to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and random tiny specs of surface foam. Nearly no lacing as just a thin ring is left behind on the glass.

S- Crisp aroma of Czech hops with a cracker-like malt aroma.

T- Taste isn't as enjoyable as the hops leave a dirty taste in my mouth. It's drinkable, but just barely so as there isn't much flavor other than that and some papery malt.

M- Has a bit of snap but is just too watery to be very enjoyable. Medium-low carbonation and a light body.

O- I've had trouble getting into Czech pilsners, but there have been some takes on the style that I've liked...this not being one of them. Certainly the weakest beer in Lagunitas's lineup.
