A great introduction to craft brewed beer, since there is enough malt and hop flavor in our Pilsner to keep even the most sophisticated beer drinkers coming back for more.

Did you know?

Czech saaz hops are exalted throughout the world for the unique crisp taste they impart ot world class lagers.

They come from the western region of the Czech Republic, Bohemia. They are the most expensive hops in the world.

Though Barley’s Pilsner looks and drinks like a pilsener, we brew it using ale yeast. Technically, it would be classified as a Light Hybrid. Step aside, Prius.

Sample at the brewpub. Very clear golden with a white foam that leaves lacing. Soft aroma of malts and fruited hops. Sulfur hop notes are tasted along with pale malts. It is just a bit soapy tasting but is a nice puls. Some spice and floral.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells solid; Saaz hops with notes of dough and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a pilsner snap. Enjoyable.

Sample at Barleys. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have some bready malt, a ouch grainy, light citrus with mild herbal hops. The aroma is very light and flavors are what I would expect.

JStax (3346) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma is nearly nonexistent. In the taste I get a graininess and some faint hop bitterness. Very light anew refreshing beer.

Clear gold color with a sticky, foamy white head. Light buscuit and lemongrass nose. Lots of lemony hops balanced over bready malts. Easy drinking hoppy pilsner that went well with the pub food.

phaleslu (7041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Draft in a sampler at Barley’s #1. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a small, lasting white head. Really faint aroma- bready malts, crackers, just a hint of hops. Flavor starts dry and bready and finishes with a small dose of hop bitterness. Medium-carbonation with a bready mouthfeel and medium, soft carbonation. Decent. Mostly bland, though.

Velkyal (299) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Pours a pale straw with very limited head. Aroma is lightly lemony, with some malt graininess. Clean, crisp but a touch thin. A decent pale lager.

On tap at Barleys Ale House #1, Columbus OH, March 2010. Gold colour. Good condition. Very biscuity, grainy malt aroma. More of the same on the palate. Slightly sweet. Not enough hops for my taste.
