Danish: Brøckhouse Pilsner er brygget efter traditionelle tjekkiske traditioner. Humlet med den fine tjekkiske Saazer humle. Mild, lys maltsmag som er afbalanceret af en markant bitterhed. Brøckhouse Pilsner er mere humlet og karakterfuld end danske standard pilsnere. Bør serveres ved 5-7 grader. Passer perfekt til svinekød. Pilsneren stammer fra Pilsen-distriktet i Tjekkiet. Der havde man noget meget blødt vand og var i stand til at lave den lyse øl. I modsætning til den mørke bajer fra Bayern, der blev lavet på hårdt vand. I Danmark drak man mørk øl indtil 1940erne, og det var ført da man begyndte at kunne fjerne kalken fra vandet og fik blødt vand, at man kunne lave pilsner. Den slog hurtigt bajeren af banen og blev danskernes foretrukne øl. Bør serveres kold, omkring 6-8 grader.

English: Brøckhouse Pilsner is brewed according to old Czech traditions. It has been hopped using the exquisite Czech Saazer hops. The mild, light malt flavour is balanced by a distinct bitterness. Brøckhouse Pilsner has a more hoppy flavour and thus more character than the ordinary Danish pilsner. Should be served cold, at 5-7°C. The pilsner originated from the Plsen District in the Czech Republic. In this part of Europe the water was soft and the bright golden beer could be produced as opposed to the darker Bavarian version made on hard water. In Denmark the dark Bavarian version was consumed until the mid-40’ies when equipment that could remove calcium from the water became available. With the calcium removed from the water it was possible to produce Pilsner and it soon became the preferred choice of the Danish beer drinkers.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
A saaz-dominated lager with a strong bitter finish, almost salty in the end. Hoppy grass dominates the beer, and there’s only a hint of a malty base. Good.
