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.

Tap at Capones. Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow with a large foamy white head. Aroma of spicy hop notes, sweet cereal grains, light lemon, earthy and herbal. Flavor of ripe banana, Cheerios, light citrus and some spicy hop notes. Too much banana for a lager let alone a Pilsner.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear golden with a large frothy white head that leaves behind good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is caramel malt and bubblegum. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter floral hop taste and nice bitter finish. Alcohol present but not overpowering. A very good strong lager from harpoon.

On tap at Bocktown, nice pale. Is this different than the regular bohemian pilsner? Not sure. Looks like a pale american lager. Thin and creamy white head. Has a rather pleasant aroma about it. Decent carbonation. Sharp and somewhat fruity pilser sharp bite. Certainly lots of personality. Almost cake like in the presentaion.A little too much personality for this lager lover, nearly astringent on the the lager impact. Bitter biting finish.

Butters (3895) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Dull golden semi-hazy yellow pour with ring of offwhite head is not. Sweet floral hop profile is a little fruity almost. Somewhat spicy and buttercream. Soft malt character. Decent for the style I suppose, but nothing stellar. Spicy finish.

mansquito (3748) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Pours a light golden color with a little white head. Smells all like a strong lager mostly, you can tell it is gonna be boozy. However, the taste is not as boozy as you would expect from a beer with this much booze in it. Somewhat spicy, a little grassy and earthy. Some hop bitterness. Overall easy, maybe too easy to drink, big beer.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sharp and citrusy with a good amount of sweet malts. Flavor is incredibly sweet and malty at the start with a warming middle of tons of malts, citrus, and a light floral hop taste. Finishes bitter and peppery.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet aroma with a bit of lemon and grass. The flavor is sweet malt followed by lemon and grassy hops. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Alcohol at 9% is very well hidden. Very enjoyable.
