pale light gold, no head or lacing to speak of. smell is sweet roasted grain, light wheat, peanut butter. light grainy pils taste, "balanced" by very bitter hops.
tasty hoppy pils from lagunitas. their trademark intense hop bitterness is here unsurprisingly

This is a Czech Style Pilsner that is smooth and crisp and very drinkable. It has a light hint of hoppyness/spiciness without being too strong. I think the yeast mellows it out. When poured it is mostly clear and produced a lightly carbonated head. It's not as rich in flavor as other Lagunitas varieties, but that's what I like about it. It has more of the traditional German lager experience than the American beers that are supposedly based on German style lagers, with none of the burnt aftertaste of the imports. And best of all, it's brewed in the heart of Napa Valley in one of the last American-owned breweries.

more of a sturdy pils than most, which i of course appreciate. this pours clear radiant yellow color, maybe a copper hue to it, but just barely. the head is frothy and rich and lasting, although only about an inch tall. the nose is grassy, distinctly Czech on the hop front, and light pizza dough malt like a good pilsener should have. nice crisp taste, with more body than most and more alcohol than most too, although you cant really taste it. the grains are nice and fresh, slightly toasted maybe, and the noble hops are spot on, summery and only moderately bitter. awesome carbonation, really thirst quenching. the finish is super clean, down easy, especially when ice cold. this is a good springtime drinker, not freakishly interesting, but it is really tasty. my dad would adore this, im impressed by its quality but not particularly moved by it. also, like the wilco tango, this is one of the few lagunitas beers where the yeast strain doesn't detract from the overall effort. hey, that's 2 in a row!
