Crown Valley’s Bohemian style Pilsener is a lager brewed with Czech Saaz hops. These hops provide great flavor and bitterness.

Not a bad pilsner. This is easily the best beer I’ve had from Crown Valley. Crisp and pale with a medium body. Citrusy sweetness.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a nice clear golden with a decent white head, some lacing. Aroma of grain is predominant but you also get some malts and a bit of hops too. Taste is sweet, malty some grain too but with a bit of bitterness to it. Easy to drink, not bad at all.

Aroma is grainy malts and a hint of vegetables. The flavor is bread, malts, a hint of citrus and a long and bitter finish.

This is a solid Pilsener that is not as hoppy as some of the higher rated beers, but I found it very smooth and balanced. Hazy gold, foamy robust head and a crazy amount of lacing. Aroma is good but unusual - I actually detect brown sugar and pecans with an oakey character.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Minor, grassy aroma. Flavor is sort of peach, which can happen occasionally with the pils style, though I’m used to BoPils emphasizing the grassy notes more. Not a bad offering, at any rate.

12 oz bottle. It pours a hazed gold with a foamy bright white head. The smell is okay. Yeast, pleasant bready malts, and a hint of noble hops. The flavor is decent. It is too sweet for the style but overall it is pleasant. This is one of the closer pilseners to the Czech variety you will find brewed in the US.

Bottle- Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice head and bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus, fresh grain and hint of sweetness. Taste of caramel sweetness, some citrus and touch of honey. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly light body. crisp, smooth and refreshing. Easy drinker, nice take on a Czech Pils. Another good beer from a small regional brewer.
