I'm a big fan of Lagunitas beer. Their brew is consistently oh-so good. So, when I spotted Pils on tap at my favorite spot for hot wings and cold beer, I immediately requested a pour.
Lagunitas Pils (6.20% ABV) is a Czech style pilsner.
It pours a hazy golden color with a very dense head of foam.
The aroma is remarkably tropical for a pilser - namely pineapple. There some bread / cracker notes, as well.
The taste is crisp and clean. Malty, doughy, and - again - pineapple. There is a whisper of floral hops that adds just a touch of bitterness. The finish is dry with a nice lingering tropical aftertaste.
The mouthfeel is light and bubbly.
Lagunitas Pils is a well balance tasty pilsner. Remarkably refreshing and ridiculously drinkable. I'm a fan!
Overall: very good!
