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 (2506) - 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.

BlackHaddock (4042) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2014
2nd Oct 2014, 0.5 litre handled glass of draught sat in the sun within the Vysehrad castle complex in Prague. Just what I needed after a couple of hours wandering around sightseeing and following a guide book trail. Typical Czech Pilsner/Lager: golden, clear and bright with a white foaming head on top. Malts just about rule the taste and aroma with the hop content coming in a close second. Refreshing and thirst quenching.

Clara, ótimo aroma de maltes frescos. No sabor refrescância com aquele amargor estilo Heineken, um pouquinho mais forte. Boa, mas nada tăo especial.

Clear golden. Short head. Mild aroma of continental hops and pale malt, with an unexpected hint of ethanol. Similar taste. Moderate bitterness and aftertaste. Good drinkability. Good, but not exceptional.

0,33 boks fra Systembolaget Lund, delt med Ovesen: mild aroma av (Sazz)humle og malt + litt alkoholpreg. Meget kort skum, standard gylden farge. en meget lettdrikkelig pilsner med behagellig bitterhet i ettersmaken.

En tämligen anonym och trist tjeck. Funkar att bälga ner en varm sommardag, men i övrigt pass.
