Lagunitas Pils

Czech Pilsener

Rating: B-

Poured from bottle to pint glass.

The beer is a clear yellow with a 1-finger, tiny-bubbled white head.  Minimal spider-webby lacing.  Nose is extremely bready up front, followed by apricot, citrus, earthy hops and a bit of malt.  The aroma gets a bit grassy as the beer drinks down.  A crisp, caramel sweetness transitions to hops, crackery malt and then back to sweet.  It seemsto be a little too much on the sweet side, but is a fairly well-balanced nonetheless.  Medium body with light carbonation, a little oily on the tongue.  I thought the finish would be crisper, but it is slightly wet.  It doesn’t seem terribly indicative of a Pils, though a decent drink.  I would have it again, but wouldn’t rave about it.
