Inspired by Eric Asimov's Times article on American pilsner, we purchased a beer we've been meaning to try: Lagunitas Pils. The Lagunitas was placed in the third ranked group with Lakefront Kilsch Pilsner, Milwaukee and Sly Fox Pikeland Pils, Phoenixville, Pa. The top three pils on Asimov's list are brewed in Pennsylvania. Lagunitas is brewed in Petaluma, California.
Taste (Robeer): Not as much flavor as I would like; am used to drinking Lagunitas's IPAs. Taste (Me): I like it. Very close to Trumer Pils, another California Pilsner, in Berkeley. Nice mouthfeel - refreshing but lingers on the palate.
