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.

Dervock (501) - Emu plains, - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle - pale gold with small white head. Doughy, earthy aroma, with something spicy. Definitely not like a pilsner, fairly drab taste, some sweetness, none of the hop aroma or taste.

Zarkam (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2014
330ml bottle from Viking XPRS, labelled Bohemian Pilsener. Clear darkish yellow colour, small fully vanishing fizzy white head, not much lacing. Moderately malty aroma of bisquit and hay with moderate herbal, grassy and slightly earthy hops. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet and slightly acidic turning into a moderately bitter finish with an astrigent feel. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Ok pilsener, no idea about where the enormous hop character is. Certainly doesn’t have the bit of a bitterness bite in the end that many of the better pilseners have. Somewhat above avereage anyway.

waiake (74) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 15, 2014
now called bohemian pilsner with a red label, pale with a brief head, this is crisp & sharp with a vague peppery bitter aftertaste, easy to drink

Nice fruity aroma. Pale golden colour with good head. Slight bitterness up front with very smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation.

StevieT (609) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2014
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 (2162) - 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 (2029) - 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 (1756) - 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 (7437) - 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 (5000) - 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!
