920. Lagunitas PILS

I apologize for the quality of the picture. I'm still trying to find a nice place to take pictures of beers in the new apartment. Jadyn wanted something that would go well with the stuffed cabbage she was making. I thought a crisp, balanced Czech Pilsener might do the job.

Pours a bright, clear golden. A thin, bright white head bubbles up on the pour, but quickly fizzes away to a thin film. The aroma, like most pilsners in my experience, is light. Though there are nice malty caramel aromas and a bit of herbal hops.

Sweet and bready flavors greet the tongue, moving into a more defined malty sweetness. The finish is a pretty spot on. There's a nice citrus-tinged, spicy hop finish with a good lingering bitterness. Crisp, nicely carbonated and light-bodied.
