COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The latest installment of the Harpoon Leviathan Series was brewed in the centuries-old tradition of Czech and Bohemian brewers. Harpoon Big Bohemian is a large lager with a clean maltiness and a huge aromatic hop character. Continental Pilsner, pale two-row, and Carafoam malt was used to brew this big, strong beer, true to the Leviathan Series. Pilsner malt is the classic ingredient of this classic style and the Carafoam malt produces a nice, frothy head. This malt mixture combined with Czech Saaz hops, the quintessential hop of the style, yields an assertive but not overly aggressive beer. The finish is dry with a lingering floral hop character.

This is light gold, almost yellow in color. Aroma is of hops and orange and lemon peels. Taste is very hoppy and citrusy. I can pick up a lot of lemon peels and some orange. Has a nice and smooth finish. Another good one from Harpoon.

Quevillon (2549) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2009
Bu en fut (4 oz) à la brasserie à Boston, le 12 juillet 2009.Blonde mi-claire, petit collet. Arome d’houblon pas très sec, notes d’herbe fruités. Goût de céréal croustillant et houblonné, amerturme sec, aucune présance d’alcool. C’est dure à croire qu’elle est forte cette bohémiène!

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours deep gold with 3-finger white head. Nose is pale malt, hops, sour fruit. Tastes rich, a bit cloying at first, very malty, with peach, apricot, and hops. Tannic, not tart enough for this style, and a bit too cloying for me. Also gets very hot and astringent late.

PapaSkeetSkeet (861) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours a nice gold color with considerable white head and decent lacing. Smells refreshing, don’t recall the details. Flavor is a nice mild blend of light malt and hops with a bit of honey. Alcohol content is covered amazingly well. Good beer, enjoyed very much. Has a nice slight bitterness in the finish that I like to see in lager beers.

Lubiere (10455) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
A golden pilsner with a thick frothy white head. In aroma, citrusy hops aroma with light lemon peels, and nice crisp malt and herbal notes. In mouth, crisp malt, loads of Saaz hops, a real pils on hormones. Medium bodied, alcohol warmth in finale. Bottle from Federal Wine and Liquors, Boston, tasted with Mateo in Bogota, Colombia, July 12, 2009.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2009
a real ggod beer. A real good pilsner. Light in color with a nice hoppy aroma. Its got a subtle sweetness that overtakes the intial hops flavor. Finishes slightly dry. My second offering from the leviathon series and another winner.

rocbyter (1908) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Robust grain and yeast aroma. Clear golden color with a large white head. I wish I poured this on in a larger glass. Light sweetness is masked by some hops in the beginning with bitter hop and mild alcohol in the finish. Hearty lager.

blipp (6357) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear light gold with a fluffy white head. Spicy floral hop aroma, a hint of grass and lighter notes of sweet malt. The flavor has a pale sweet malt base with a solid dose of spicy and floral hops. A really good Imp. Pilsner. Better than Sam Adams, not quite as good as S.T. Krampus.
