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.

Boring pilsner with very muted hops and a classic pale malt. Finishes dry and a bit "corny" even though i doubt theres any corn in it. Needs a bit more hops and bitterness for my taste not bad.

light body, medium bitterness, golden, clear, frothy, white foam, bread, spruce, The Saaz hops come though in the nose but not overwhelming as in an IPA. The light maltiness is followed by the hops bitterness at the end in a nice balance. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, a reminder of how good this beer is.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Pours copper/gold with a thick white head. Smells of saaz hops, crisp, dry pilsner malt, touches of apple. Tastes of dry malt, some spicy hints and some residual sweetness on the finish.

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. Sweet biscuity malts in the nose with light notes of straw. Medium sweet flavor, some nice doughy bread, light bitter straw, some white sugar. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty clean finish, more sweet, white bread malts, mild bitterness. Not too complex. Very easy.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Had on tap at Eastside a year before it appeared in bottle. Nice lighter golden hue, white head. Clean aromas, a bit bready, but not much else. Hits the spot in the summertime, very crisp entry with the mid and finish having a decent hop presence. Nice shot at a Czech pils, I’m not much of a pils guy, but does the job.

If you like Budweiser you’ll love this. Tastes like a full flavored american corn lager.
