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.

wheresthepath (1833) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle at Wild Lime, Reading. Gold with a thin white head. Gentle fizz in a soft body. Sweet but thin malt behind light grassy hops. A little pepper in the slightly dry finish. Beats the macros I guess, but it’s very very tame indeed.

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Lahev. Clear, golden, smaller - slowly collapsing - White head; mild sweetish pale-malty nose with a bready touch, spicy Saaz hops barely detectable, but some are in the Aroma...; mild bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied and nearly soft; finish is watery, spicy hops and pale malt detectable in molecular doses: Not an unpleasant, but a very thin Interpretation of a Bohemian Pilsener...

Beer5000 (5186) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a big but fast disappearing white head. A bit weak aroma of grain and sweetish malt. Flavor is sweet malty and a bit metallic, low bitterness. Plain and one dimensional. Medium body and short aftertaste. Nothing for me at all.

DanielBrown (4164) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle at Taps, Leicester. Crisp, herby, pizza crust, grassy Pils. Thick bubbles. Nice rainwasser arome. Enjoyed this.

guzgorog (507) - FRANCE - OCT 27, 2014
Blonde dorée. Col de mousse blanche disparaissant rapidement. Nez de céréales et d’herbes. Bouche maltée, le houblon apporte une amertume moyenne mais peu de saveur. Pas de longueur en bouche. Carbonation moyenne. Déçu, ne vaut pas une bonne pils tchèque !
