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.

Beer5000 (5962) - 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 (4381) - 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 (724) - 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 !

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 (16197) - 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).

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2014
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.
