COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American version of a traditional Bohemian Pilsner is a true lager, brewed to emulate the original style born in Plzen, Czechoslovakia. Berkshire uses authentic Pilsner floor malt from the Czech Republic in this classic beer. Light in color, our Pilsner is dry and crisp, and pungently hopped with Czech Saaz hops to impart a rich aroma, with a subtle bitterness to the finish.

Tried this last night on tap at a beer tasting and along with 40+ local beers (New England) Always been a fan of BBC but never tried this. Great clean crisp taste, plain and simple, a great tasting beer.

No. This beer isn’t bourbon-barrel aged, or passed through a rhubarb randall. I don’t care about IBUs or drink-by dates (*Stone*). We’re tired of all this beer snobbery, hogwash, and pretentiousness. Let’s get back to why we started drinking beer in the first place. Pure, untainted, balance of hops, yeast, and malt. Beer that tastes like it was made on an old family farm. Stinky, green, rooty. Crisp, lush, fresh. Creamy, quenching, classic. Don’t miss this year’s iteration of Berkshire Czech Style Pils.

Nice and clean. Had on tap at the Grog, and boy was I impressed. Flavor profile of rice flour, Saaz hops, pilsner malt, and, German yeast, dandelions, and cotton. Crisp. Very respectable.

halfonit (1227) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours a clear yellow color with a white head that has little retention. Aroma is of bready malts, grass, and a little hops. Flavor is of hops, malts, aluminum, and wheat. A nice crisp finish.

Pours pale gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Caramel and saaz aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning to slightly sour hay in the medium length finish.

Bomber from Whole Foods Market Darien. Pouurs a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral and grassy hops and bready malts. The taste is grassy and floral with a pale malt finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

Certainly above replacement-level. Refreshing and crisp. Hop notes are mellow. Color is light. Drinkability is high. Overall, well done.

Lukaduke (2686) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours a nice deep straw color with a two finger foamy head that sticks around for a bit. Bright crisp saaz hop aromas with hints of bready malts and traces of citrus. On the palate its smooth and refreshing with nice punches of bitterness balanced by round bready malts.

ThirstyBird (2176) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2012
Thanks Jason for hauling this all the way to Italy! Appears a pale and clear yellow with a fluffy white head. Some nice lacing. Smells citrusy, crisp hops, light malt. Taste is a wonderful blend of hop crispness and light malt sweetness. Light body with nice carbonation and super smooth.
