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.

drpimento (2178) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2012
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.

From a bottle. Pours a clear gold, small white head, fresh aroma and balanced flavours leaning towards malt. Not their best beer.

MRMedellin (209) - 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 (1986) - 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.

Capa (1969) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 7, 2014
Clear golden with a diminishing white head. Aroma is grain, sweet, a bit of grass, too. Medium, carbonated body. Flavor is more grain and sweet and less grass than I was expecting due to the aroma. Soft, round finish without the desired crisp bite of a Bohemian Pilsener (as my sixer of this was named). Still, decent lager for a hot afternoon.

sm89walt (1750) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2014
Keg - Lake Bar, Wanaka. A clear golden amber colour with a medium sized, lacing and lasting white head. Clean, crisp, fine pale malt sweetness. Notes of grain, citrus, biscuit and grassy hop. Light to medium body, good length and intensity bitterness. Firm, refreshing mouthfeel.

Beerhunter111 (6900) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, getreidig, grasig. Geschmack wässrig, leicht malzig getreidig, minimal herb.

kappldav123 (4732) - GERMANY - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle looks simple but good. Nice format. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts malty-spicy, modest dry, zippy, fruity hints of lemon. Finish mild but not washy, still fine spicy. Not bad!

kevnic2008 (7667) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2014
Many thanks for this bottle to kappldav123. Clear gold thin white head. It’s fine. A little thin and watery some late hop sting.

kiwianer (3319) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 7, 2014
The head is medium, the body gold. It smells malty, less hoppy, less interesting. The taste is malty, a bit hoppy-bitter, quite boring.

3fourths (7885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Sweet corn, DMS and saccharine with a stagnant hoppiness and a dirtiness of dust bunnies. Harsh carbonation with equally harsh malt texture, something similar to warm high carbonic acid seltzer water cut with simple syrup. A lot of poorly made NA beers have this character. There’s no hop aroma, only a stale, leafy bitterness in the finish with lingering apple-y acetaldehyde.
