We are introducing the "Rx Pils" Bohemian Pilsner. This pilsner is rich with complex malt and a spicy, floral Saaz hop bouquet. It has a very pale gold color and a dense, long-lasting, creamy white head. The flavor has a drinkability created by complex maltiness and a pronounced soft and rounded bitterness from Saaz hops. As with most Flossmoor beers, bitterness is prominent but not harsh here. The aftertaste is balanced between malt and hops. Overall, a crisp, complex and well-rounded yet refreshing beverage.

hazy light gold, slim white head that reduces to tiny bubbles, some lace. some maltiness in the mild nose. earthy malt and mildly bitter hops compliment each other nicely in the flavor. medium bodied, lightly bitter finish. a very entertaining brew. more please. on tap at the station.

On tap at the brewpub: This had a pale yellow body, very lightly hazed, wiith a substantial, sustained head. The aroma had a grainy sweetness topped by drying grasses, a touch of zest, and a hint of flowers. The flavor was well balanced between malts and hops, tipping somewhat toowards the hoppy side. Very nice dry, bitter finish. A job well done by Mr. Shimkos.

Growler from brewpub. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aromas of grainy malts and fair amount of hops. Flavors of grain, pale malts, and nice hop flavor for a pils. Pretty drinkable brew.

Pale yellow w/ a foamy white head. I’m wondering if this is the bottom of the keg. It is quite hazy and almost looks like a wit, though that is partly influenced by the condensation on the glass. Mild floral hop nose w/ a bit of husky grain. This is very bracingly bitter, at the same level or more than most solid APAs, very earthy and well balanced by a bit of sweetness. I feel like this is a bit heavy for the style but I think many people will like that about it.

tmoreau (3556) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Sampled at the brewpub bar with a clear, straw hue, modest, white head foam that reduced rather quickly to a ring and film, but left some wavy ribbons of lacing. The nose was light grain, and a little spice and sweetness. The flavor was similar, with a healthy hop bitterness that dominated the malt content nicely, as it should in a Bohemian Pils, light body, lively carbonation, and a nice, clean crispness. Very sessionable.

Hazed yellow pour with a pretty robust and fluffy white head. The nose is sweet caramel malt, lemon, grassy, and hinting at tartness. Substantial caramel malt sweetness, bread dough, lemony tartness, cut grass, and a stronger-than-expected hit of continental hoppiness (floral in nature). Quite nice...very refreshing, repeatable, and satisfying.

Draft on tap at the Mug Club tapping (Flossmoor, IL). Pours a nice hazy golden straw hue, a decent offwhite head sits atop and dies to a small film, laces ok. Aromas are grass and lemon rind, raw cereal grains, doughy bread, crackers, with a light floral appeal. Appetizing. Initial is more substantial end of light bodied, full of flavors of grass and lemon rind, some decent florals, bread dough and crackers come from behind, cereal grains, cheerios, a refreshing lemon and floral balance with grassy, earthy hops. Gentle but tasty, decent bitterness. The unfiltered essence really gives it a kick in the flavor department. Grass, lemon, bread. Refreshing but still quite flavorful. Not sweet, balanced well. A clean but flavorful Bohemian that rivals any I’ve had. The freshness is probably it’s strength and likely gives it quite a great flavor. A winner in the lager realm
