Pils, Czech Style Pilsner, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Petaluma California
This Saaz hopped lager is a lot different from the Pilsner from yesterday. I love Lagunitas beers, but lagers have a tough time getting on my good side, so let's see. Yesterday's was a surprise, so you never know....
It pours a pale wheat color with a thin head.
The aroma is very mild caramel, hop and brown sugar.
The taste is refreshing and crisp. Mild honey and mild orange are present in the body with a soft straw-ish flavor.
The palate resets quickly, it is mildly sweet with mild hop and finishes dry.
Unfortunately, this beer wasn't as dynamic as last night's Pilsner. It is a soft flavored beer and would be best suited for a hot afternoon in the spring/summertime...
