COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

At Papsoe’s pre CPH Beer Fest tasting, cheers Henrik! Clear gold beer, soft palate, sweetish malt with some sweetish fruit. Actually not bad at all, slips down easy!

Blond color. Very light malty aroma. Quite dry, light flavor of eggs, some malt, a bit metallic, quite strong bitterness at the end, not aromatic. Mediocre.

yngwie (13562) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle, thx to Papsoe. It pours a clear, golden body under a white head. Fruity nose with some pale malts. Tropical fruits too, but in the background. The flavor is also on the fruity side, with some tropical fruits and a little malty sweetness. Medium body. Some bitterness in the finish, I would like it more pronounced. Maybe a bit on the sweet side, but it’s a quite nice beer. (090514)
