COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bohemian Pilsner When we designed this lager we wanted to stay away from the insipid generic lager styles which are available nearly everywhere you look. We wanted a beer that had flavour that could still be tasted after several pints. High quality European lager malt along with Czech Saaz and German Hallertau hops have produced a fresh tasting aromatic lager that is full bodied for the style, malty and refreshing.

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2008
Second beer of the night...still thirsty after the Munich...man how humid is it in Auckland! Looks great in the glass, a shade darker than Munich and the better for it. Slightly fruity zest on the nose, this has a lighter fruitier malt/hop presence than the Munich which allows it to seem fresher and more quenching. This is a style i do love and i like the way this is more true to style than other antipodean offerings but isn’t lessened by this fact. This beer is a problem for me, anywhere else i would drink this by the bucketload but at Galbraiths i hardly touch it because of the real ale offerings!

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2012
light grassy, moderate amount of biscuit character and a moderately bitter finish. A touch unbalanced and sour but still a great beer

skortila (4558) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
On tap or cask @ Galbraiths’, Auckland. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma is a bit citric fruity and slightly grainy. Clear, golden coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has hints of grassy hops, is a bit citric, ’pale malty’. Crisp, clean and nice.

Bif (1498) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Served a golden color with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of some citrus and bit of malt sweetness and fresh grain. has a clean scent. Taste has a nice crispness with some malt sweetness and a bit of grain. nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp and quite refreshing. Enjoyable beer that is quite sessionable.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 25, 2005
Tasted 23/03/2005. Classic english pint glass on tap at the brewery’s ale house. Pleasant light grainy malt flavour up front is followed with nice long-lasting citrus hop notes in this unfiltered lager. I don’t come to Galbraith’s for lager though... so time for another bitter.

On tap. Pale golden colour, thick white fluffy head. Nice strong grassy/earthy hop aroma. Some thin pils caramel malts. Flavour is quite grassy and earthy with a moderate but very clean bitterness.

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2007
PET from brew pub (tasted 10/01/07) Clear bright golden, decent white head that lingers. Moderate malty aroma. Medium-full bodied mouth, nice slightly grassy/citrus middle & dry hop finish. Possible a bit stale but given I transported it back to ChCh & stored a few weeks that’s probably understandable

DiscoForever (71) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 15, 2007
Tap: smells like sauvignon blanc. Is fresh in the mouth and tastes herby and grassy with dusty straw and rising bitterness that both linger into a long dry (and slightly dull) finish. Pretty good though.

omhper (19659) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden. Grassy hops are there, but it’s dominated by bready malt. It’s medium bodied with clean mouthfeel and medium bitterness. It’s more like those modernized, clean Czech lagers, than the good old ones with loads of diacetyl and lots of saaz hops.
