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.

A nice drop if you want a pure golden beer in your glass. Head didn’t last longer than 2 minutes but at least the beer tasted refreshing.

TBone (14263) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from Viking Gabriella taxfree as "Bohemian Pilsner"
Clear amber-golden color, small white head. A bit papery, grassy hoppy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Spicey bitter hoppyness, ok palate but some cardboard in the finish. Light use of crystal malts. Seems to be 8 months old bottle (BB 02/2015).

0.33 l bottle from Viking Line ferry boat form Stockholm to Helsinki. My bottle says Bohemian Pilsner on the red label but I guess this must the same beer. Does not look very promising but taste is malts and hops i.e. exactly what a Bohemian pilsner should be. Also, this does not die in your mouth as quickly as the other brewerages from the same brewery.

Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2014
330ml bottle from Viking XPRS, labelled Bohemian Pilsener. Clear darkish yellow colour, small fully vanishing fizzy white head, not much lacing. Moderately malty aroma of bisquit and hay with moderate herbal, grassy and slightly earthy hops. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet and slightly acidic turning into a moderately bitter finish with an astrigent feel. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Ok pilsener, no idea about where the enormous hop character is. Certainly doesn’t have the bit of a bitterness bite in the end that many of the better pilseners have. Somewhat above avereage anyway.

now called bohemian pilsner with a red label, pale with a brief head, this is crisp & sharp with a vague peppery bitter aftertaste, easy to drink

StevieT (1046) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a clear gold, small white head, fresh aroma and balanced flavours leaning towards malt. Not their best beer.

MRMedellin (217) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 31, 2014
Clear golden beer, small but persistent head, floral aromas as well as some not usual cheese ones. The body is light and the respective pilsner hop flavor is undeniable; however, the malt flavor is not strong enough and maybe is the only particularity. Overall is quite a good beer.

jookos (3599) - FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from Viking Grace. Pale yellow, clear. Slight metallic, corn malty, continentally hopped nose. Feels nose-wise like your average european bulk pils/lager. Nice body though. Med light, Sparkling carbonation. Herby, slight old leafy hops mixed in that stream of somewhat tasteless malts. Ok for a bulk, quite enjoyable really.
