4/5 rDev +10.2%
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.
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.

3.5/5 rDev -3.6%
Poured from a chilled 12 oz. bottle into a lager glass.
Color: light golden.
Lots of head -- 3 to 4 fingers which takes a while to settle leaving behind complex lacy patterns. Not much aeration after pouring.
Aroma: light hoppiness and some fruitiness (surprised by the latter).
Taste: Hoppy but not too hoppy. Subtle slight bitterness. Fantastic introduction to Pilsners if you've never had one.

Okay, this beer is good but a little rough around the edges. First, the head is great, long lasting and sticky. Shows great lacing on the glass. The pilsner glass is filled top to bottom with the residual from the head. Aroma is decent. Getting a lot of hops up front, malts are non-existent. Nice golden hue. The taste is a little rough. If you like a lot of bitterness from your pils, you cant go wrong with this. I prefer a smoother pils for my palate. If they toned down the bitterness, i would have scored this beer higher. Not much to knock on this beer. A decent take on a Czech pils. At this price there are better options. Another point for this beer is the alcohol content, 6%. Does not take too many of these to get trashed. This beer is the party animal of the pilsner world. It says F U to the rest, i'm doing things my way. Its the rebellious child you cant control. I would definitely get again if i want a pils that's hardcore and to the point. Nothing hidden on this one. Good pils!
