Beer Review: Lagunitas Pils



Czech Style Pilsner
Like Adam and Eve, Issac and Ishmael,Mao and Confuscious, Good and Evil, Day and Night, Hittites and Visigoths, John and Lorena, or Groucho and Moe, Ales and Lagers are as different as can be. Still, we must love each other for who they are, seperately but equally, with liberty, and justice, for all. Cheers!

ABV: 6.2%

Sold As:
6 Packs & Kegs
Net contents:
12 fluid ounces of Malt, Hops, Yeast, and water.



--------------------------------


Appearance: (3.5)
- Crystal clear straw yellow with a quick fizzing finger of head that has left some light dust over the brew, as well as a few random bubble points and craters. Bubbly brew. Simple. 


Smell: (3.0)
- Quite the roasty grain. There is a bready sugary all-grain sweetness along with some crisp yeast aromas. Almost some esters and fruit. Light grassy hop, and a touch floral. Overall not too bad. 


Taste: (3.5)
- Certainly some crisp and sweet malts going on. Unique, grainy, husky, and somewhat fruity. More so there is a nice earthy and grassy bitterness and flavor. Sweet grainy sugars, bread, spice, and zest all together to make a nice bitter pilsner. 


Mouth Feel: (4.0)
- This is mostly a light bodied brew, but does pack the carbonation and sweetness of a medium bodied brew. It's certainly drying and a touch chewy. Lip smacking bitterness is kind of nice. 


Overall: (3.5)
- It is nice to have a relatively 'normal' beer from Lagunitas. This is certainly a tad more bitter than most pilsners, and also has a steeper ABV. But they did it well by getting the bitterness up there to not make such a sweet beer (which I feel they are guilty of often). Solid offering.
