COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep gold in color, our pilsner is a Bohemian pleasure. Brewed with the finest European pale and Munich malts, it has a medium body and smooth malt flavor. It is served unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Often attempted, but rarely perfected, this pils reaches a level of drinkable perfection. Santo Viejo pairs well with sausage, pizza, shellfish and poultry. Winner of USBTC’s best Pilsner of the South 2008.

Wow! Great beer!! Served here at the pub bar. Has a nice light tan foamy, frothy head that mostly dissipates. No lace. Very malty aroma. Has a lovely polished brass color. Flavor and body is where this beer really shines though. Absolutely a session beer. It’s one of the best micro-brewed czech pilsners I’ve ever had. Yummmmmm. Wish it wasn’t so far to go to from Wisconsin. Wah. Good hop character that’s right in line with the standard. Excellent hop/malt balance. Perfect finish.

Very refreshing and "just right" bitterness. Quickly becoming my favorite at OHB. Semi murky golden color, nice small head.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Gold. Nose is grassy hops and seems more full-bodied than the later already with deeper malt and higher IBU. Delicious lingering bitterness. Impressive and sessionable.
