A beautiful light gold in color, totally clear, with a white head that reduces to a rough ring of foam in my glass.

It has a grainy and grassy smell, exactly what I'd expect for the style.

The taste is also grassy and grainy, with an extra citrus twang from the hops. This has a nice American tweak to the Czech style. The extra hop flavors are not extreme, though. Lagunitas has been very careful with this beer.

Overall this is a very good Pils, and one I would especially recommend to hop fans. It's not a hop bomb or extreme, but just a good example of a well-crafted beer.
