I love this Pils. Hard to find in NC but worth it when you do. Crisp and full bodied. Not your basic boring Pilsner .... At 6.2% this pils has it all

A- big foamy bone white head that lasted a long time. Minimal to no lacing. Lots of bubbles. Very pale golden yellow. Looked like lemon meringue pie in a glass. A great looker!

S- crisp and clean. Sweet spicy malts. Feint hops.

T- malty up front, sweet on the back end. Biscuity. Slight hop bitterness.

M- silky smooth. Light body.

O- very good. Love all things Lagunitas, but I'm not a Pils guy (love me some IPA's!!!); however, I know a good Pilsner when I drink one. Has officially dethroned the Scrimshaw as my favorite Pilsner. This is a great offering from one of the best breweries. Would have again and definitely recommend.

Cheers!

Pours a clear medium light gold with a nice cap of foamy white head that has solid retention and leaves some very nice sticky lacing. The aroma is good as well, with nice biscuit and noble hops. The taste, unfortunately, doesn't match the robust aroma, with same the qualities but a lacking in volume. The body isn't too heavy and has a nice little bit of carbonation on the finish. If the flavor were dialed up a little more this would be a knock-out, easy drinking and flavorful.
