Monteith’s Pilsner Beer is a Bohemian-style lager in the heritage of extremely hopped blonde beers brewed in parts of Eastern Europe. It has a complex hop aroma and a rich hop bitterness characteristic of this tradition in brewing.
Monteith’s Pilsner Beer has a malty quality that includes smooth caramel characteristics from the use of Vienna-style crystal malts. The key flavour is its enormous hop character, crafted around this complex malt flavour.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2003
Golden, crystal clear, with good carbonation. Forms a nice tight white head, with resonable longevity. A hint of steely hops, and little else in the aroma - certainly none of the slightly sweet aromas present in a typical pilsener. Taste of sugar adjunct, little or no hop flavour, but noticeable harsh, high alpha hop bitterness. Drying finish.

an above average pilsner, some fruity flavours, good hop bitterness, nothing too special.

theres a tad skunkiness in the aroma of this golden clear white topped concoction..maybe some straw notes too..its a tad adjuncty, but somewhat smooth..doesn't really taste too much different than most american standards..in fact, I've had better american standards..why does this get pilsner status again?

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Color of golden shit with little head. An enticing yet weak as hell straw, fresh horse stall feel to it, boring and bland. God damn is the aftertaste somethning i am glad that i dont remember.

jazz88 (2558) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Bottle. A light golden color with a laced white head. An odd aroma for the style that is part malty, with some banana, and a little of that organic whatchamacallit. A grainy body with that leaves a poor aftertaste.

rauchbier (3617) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2003
Bottled. Gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Sweet malt in the nose with some banana notes and a slight starchiness as it warms. Sweet in the mouth but well hopped. Warming reveals some tannin. Chalky finish with a tingle of hop bitterness.

SilkTork (5231) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 August, 2003 Bottle. An acceptable drink of little character. Quite soft and drinkable. [2.2]
Sept, 2011 Grainy and greasy, fat malt base, Slightly sweet. Somewhat ugly. Few hops - barely noticeable - some soapy notes. This is not nice. Barely drinkable. [1.2]

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2003
Golden colour almost copper, moderate hops giving the bitterness at the mid palate, soft texture that is a bit thin in the finish. Inoffensive pilsener.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2003
Bottled AIBA 2003: Light in general, the hops and malts are a bit too subtle, and its a touch too fizzy, still, i found it quite pleasant, some sweet pale malt, and some light saaz, just not enough in my opinion.
