A classic Czech lager beer of the Pilsner type noted for its pure golden colour, clean hoppy aroma and fine bitterness. Made from pure natural spring water, best quality Saaz hops and the finest malt from our own malt house, Breznak has become for centuries much sought-after by discerning beer drinkers both in Czechia and abroad.

Douberd (3076) - Arnhem, - JAN 28, 2013
500 ml bottle, bought in Germany under the name Breznak Original Bohmisch Pils. Poured into a footed pilsner glass. Colour is very deep yellow-golden, with something more of two fingers of foam. White and soapy, with very good retention and heavy lacing left on the glass. A constant stream of bubbles is rising to the surface. Aroma is quite hoppy, but not as much as I would expect from a Czechish pilsner. Some light malt aroma too, along with adjuncts. Rice, maybe? Nice bitter taste. Unfortunately, very metallic at first, along with this adjunct flavour, but it gets much better on the aftertaste where the hops really shine, with a long finish as well. Medium thickness on the body, very dry on the palate and just the right amount of carbonation. I really liked this one, very good.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear gold with white head. Sweet malt aroma. Lightweight body and the taste is bland. Some sweetness, but not much else, almost no bitterness.

mateuszk (359) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Clear and golden with white head. Aroma of malt with almost no hop presence. In taste similar, beer is rather sweet with low bitter finish. Ordinary pils, nothing to remember here.

Pours clear golden. Malty aroma. Taste is dominated by malty notes, but it finishes with a slightly bitter hoppy notes. Very basic pilsner. Nothing special but drinkable and refreshing brew. (0,5l bottle, labeled as "Original Bömisch Pils", bb 04.09.15)
