COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bootleg’s premium beer, the Pils is designed to represent the true Pilsener style of Czechoslovakia. Heavily hopped with imported Saaz and Hersbrucker hops, the Pils is not only quite bitter but displays an intense herbaceous bouquet imparted by the use of Saaz. Strikingly bitter, the beer softens to a dry cleansing distinct finish. The softness of the rainwater used in the beer creates a silky texture for which this style of beer is renowned. A true Pils for the Pilsener enthusiast. INTERNATIONAL BEER AWARDS –"BEST AUSTRALASIAN DRAUGHT LAGER" GOLD '02. INTERNATIONAL BEER AWARDS – BRONZE ’97, ‘01.

Tap at the brewery. Had this a while ago. Remember it being a solid pils - nice crisp finish with a light malt backing. Easy to slam down. I prefer there newer pilsner as it's a fraction more hoppier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is malty, some slight fruit/floral notes. Some decent bitterness, a little fruitiness and brown sugar.

Had on tap at the brewery. A very nice pilsner. Nice hop aromas and lovely bitter finish.

Pours golden color, not much head. Smell of maltyness. Not much flavour to be had, bit of malt and hops. Will have to try from tap.

Bottle. Gold with a huge white head. High bead - a bit over the top really. Aroma is very fruity - pears, apricots, lemon pudding - with some honey, earth and butterscotch. The sweet things show up in the taste too, but the malt side is not all that sweet. Drying finish hasn’t enough bitterness to my taste.

Maris (952) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2010
From a 330ml bottle on 15/7/2010. There are herbs, grass and bread and a touch of honey in the aroma. More herbal notes are evident when it hits the mouth, with a long, firm hoppy finish setting off the honeyed sweetness at the start. This is a pretty good pilsener.

mkel07 (3017) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2010
330ml bottle. Looks pretty robust for a pilsensr witha deep snowy head atop a golden amber body with a little haze in the glass. Light grain infused aroma leads in to a crisp clean taste and a nice mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2010
Pours golden with a small, white, quickly fading head. Nose shows some grassy noble hops, with subtle caramel and bready malt in the background. Flavours are pretty much the same: subtle noble hops with bready and grainy malt. Too highly carbonated.

Bottle brought back from Western Australia by a friend of mine. Thanks! Aroma is light with some bread and biscuits. A good dose of grass, pepper, earth, and even some citrus notes from the hops too. Light hazy gold with a thin head. The flavor also had notes of bread and biscuits, was dry with a larger hop presence than most pils. Grass, pepper, earth, citrus. Dry finish. Definitely had lively carbonation, perhaps a bit too lively, but I liked their take and interesting, if unconventional hop notes for the style.
