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.

KeefOz (963) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2013
BB 19-11-13. Poured a clear golden colour with a one- to two- finger white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced with a few rings. Carbonation moderate with large bubbles. Aroma of light sweet malt and some yeast. Taste initially of light sweet malt followed by a low bitterness. Light body. Smooth with a long slightly bitterness and somewhat metallic on the finish. Disappointing.

Looks like a pilsner should. Initial malt aroma overcome by a stale yeast smell. Flavour wise very similar - initial malt, unsavory yeast, metallic hints and clumsy bitterness on the back of the palate. Pretty average ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2013
This beer gushed 1/4 of the beer out opening. A - Hazy pale amber with a 2 finger white head S - Very bready yeast, faint hints of asparagus, musty grass. T - Mineral like hop character, some mild floral citrus behind a honey kissed malt. The hops are faint and stay uniform the he drink almost dying off toward the finish. A mild citrus tartness on the finish saves this one. M - On the heavy side of light but with creamy feel. Bummer on the gusher but it turned out ok. You can sense the age on this beer. Very nice feel and above average overall. Serving type: bottle 07-21-2011

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 (1558) - 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.
