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

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2012 This beer as nothing but the name of a czech pilsner. More looking like a Pale Lager. Quite good though, light sweet, fine sparkling.

Little bit of an odd duck here. Served cold and with a creamy, off white head that soon settled to a light cover and lots of fine lace. Color is a clear amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is malt, grain, hop. Flavor’s like nose, grain flavor pronounced, light carbonic tang, mild sweetness and hop bitter. Body is ok, ditto carbonation but even so, it still seems somehow a little flat. Finish is like both flavor and body, which doesn’t work to the beer’s advantage. gigged it on that a notch. Kind of weird; i like it, but then again... meh.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2011
A golden pils with a thin white head. Light signs of oxidation in aroma, with faint German hops. In mouth, there is still some life left in this one, with grainy (attenuated) malt, still a nice grassy German hops attack, mineral notes, oxidation is not too bad. BB March 2010...still drinkable.

Grima (2099) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2011
Golden color with medium pored, durable head. The smell is hoppy sweet. Starts conspicuous sweet and hoppy, but unfortunately also slightly musty, malty. The finish is also hoppy sweet, characterized by a sweet aftertaste.

(bottled) Amazed to see this listed as a Bohemian Pilsener , ’pale lager’ is being kind ...who ever entered it that was very drunk or dead-pan. headless, grainy sweet ,with honey ,faint caramel but shitloads of h20.

Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear golden pour with a medium, frothy and light fizzy, white head. Few bubbles in the liquid. Aroma is sweet, malty, some citric notes, light sugary. Highish carbonation, fairly nice mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some sugary notes, light hay-like bitterness. Could have done with more bitterness, but is not a horrible pilsner.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Malty, and not too bad. Aromas of straw, citrus, a hint of caramel, and band-aid. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes. Palate is oily, and highly carbonated. Yellow, with a frothy head.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Minimal herber Antrunk, dann verstärkt malzig und getreidig. Der milde Geschmack setzt sich auch im Mittelteil fort, dazu kommt eine dezente Süße, die etwas trocken wirkt. Herb-getreidiger, dennoch milder Abgang. Test vom 11.6.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,11,12,11,10,11 - 11,10
