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.

Frankenstone (1) - Shoalwater, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2013 does not count
A lightly hopped pilsner, lacking depth of flavour and having an unusual bitterness. Disappointing.

AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2013
Gyllene i färgen med vitt skum. Frisk och sötaktig pils med blommiga och fruktiga toner. Humlig karaktär med mycket blommor. Avslutas lätt torrt med bitterhet.

Bif (1416) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle- Pours a clear golden color with a decent head that fdaes to some lacing. Aroma of mild citrus with some malt sweetness and fresh grain.. Taste has a bit of citrus with malt sweetness, bit of caramel and grain. Decent bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Not what would consider a Bohemian Style but still quite enjoyable. Good for a few.

A really bland fizzy lager that belies the description on the bottle. Sweet, thin, just another bottle of puss.

This is a mildly hoppy pilsner that is easy to drink. It’s a little sweeter than I’d like but a good quaffing beer nonetheless.

EithCubes (4831) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle by 06-09-12. Faint malt nose, pours a deep golden with a fizzy white head. Sharp medium bitterness, grainy and a little dirty/industrial. Light-medium body not very crisp but full and flat.

A very lightly hopped pilsner, which is very soapy on the palate. Not one to write home about.
