COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Narragansett Brewing Co. was founded in 1890 by six German immigrants with a passion for European-style lagers and ales. Throughout our proud history, lager beers have remained our signature style. We are pleased to offer you this Bohemian-style pilsner, a craft-brewed tribute to the original lager. Our Bohemian Pilsner delivers an enjoyable malt profile with flavorful, aromatic hop characterisitics from Nothern Brewer and Hallertau hops.

This beer falls between the big brewery American pilsners and the craft pilsners in terms of flavor. Honestly, it is as close to a tasting like a true Czech pilsner as I have tasted outside of the Czech Republic. The aroma and and bitterness are right. The beer is lacking head, but what lacing it leaves sticks to the glass. It is darker in color than a Budweiser and more bitter, but not nearly as bitter as American pilsners being made by US craft brewers. $9 for 6 tallboys isn’t a terrible deal. Is it worth spending more than Budwieser? Or worth spending a little more for something a little tastier? I’ll have another and decide later.

Pours out a golden orange with a big durable head of white foam. Very clear, no haze or floaties. Spicy hop aromas and plenty of bread. The flavor is more of the save, only a little bit duller. Huge impressions of bread, and some odd but not-unpleasant Belgian-ish fruity flavors. Hints of honey as well. Smooth with a dry finish of lingering spicy hop. Honestly pleasantly surprised by this one, way better than I expect a cheap pilsner in a tallboy made by Narragansett should be.

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with little retention recedes to sicken surface. Caramel, hay and toast aromas. Crisp with sour corn and hay upfront turning to mildly bitter earth in the lasting finish.

PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 16 oz can. Pours a medium golden with a snow white head, slight lacing. Aroma has a brief hoppy hint, a touch of grain. Flavor is pleasant with some slight sweet honey notes, a touch of yeast, some bready goodness. Mouthfeel has a nice crsipness to it. Not bad at all.

TheBeerLover (1024) - DC Metro Area, USA - MAR 2, 2014
This is an outstanding domestic version of a Czech classic. Really excellent grassy hop aromas and crisp pilsner malt on the nose. The palate is smooth and round with a wonderful pilsner malt flavor. This one finishes with more great pilsner malt up front, and ends with a slight herbal/grassy hop bite that lingers for a bit and fades. Great drinking beer, great beer to match with food. This is what you want and expect in a text book example of Czech pilsner. A perfect example of "less is more" in a beer.

DialSquare (2306) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
From an old note (pretty sure on tap at Proof): yellow-gold pour. aroma is grain cereal, little corn. tastes are sweet malt, fruity, herbal. Light bitterness. 6.2

puboflyons (1873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2014
From the one pint can. It pours a typical pale yellow color with a big, fizzy white head. The aroma is of grains, some light malts, and clean, crisp hops. Everything here reminds me of a traditional pilsener. Light to refreshing body. I wish it were summer! The taste has a modest grainy and malty character up front and then a clean, crisp hop finish. It is a pilsener through and through.

mdindy (31) - Attleboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2014
pours from can a very pale yellow clear color, very mild aroma. fairly easy on the palate has a hoppy flavour with maybe some corn or yeast notes. feels like med to high carbonation and slightly bitter after taste. decent beer can be refreshing but i would prefer their fest lager over this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (1959) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with minimal head and very little lace. Aroma is bready grain and lager yeast. Taste follows, not bad for a pils.

Currently enjoying the last of a recently purchased 6-pack of 16 oz. tall boys while hoping that this isn’t just a seasonal beer for Narragansett as I’d like to purchase another in the near future. Best I can say is that it does a good job of meeting the Commercial Description set forth by the brewer. Easy drinking with the taste I’d expect from this type of Pilsner. Despite its 5.2% ABV, it drinks in many ways like a session beer. Narragansett has a winner with this one.

rjplumer (357) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Light crisp pine aroma. Healthy foam two finger head that lingers. Lager like yellow color with a tinge of orange. Light bitterness with a light sour middle. Has a somewhat clean finish. Drinkable and I do like very much. Not complex and is light enough to be had in generous amounts.
