Danish: Denne øl er opstået som et ønske om at brygge en velhumlet lagerøl - eller pilsnerøl som vi også kalder øltypen. I Böhmen, der er en del af Tjekkiet, begyndte man allerede for 1000 år siden at anvende humle i øllet. Vist nok som de første i verden. Og man brugte rigeligt af den, den gode humle. Og det gør man heldigvis den dag i dag på de kanter. Så den Böhmiske pilsner har karakter og smag af god tjekkisk humle. Det er den humle, vi har brugt. Tjekkisk Sazzhumle i rigt mål ad tre gange under kogningen og til sidst en sæk i lagertanken. Så vores bud på en lagerøl, er jo noget anderledes end den sædvanlige pilsner. Vi filtrerer ikke øllet. Derfor er øllet en anelse uklart. Undlad at hælde de sidste dråber ud af flasken - køb hellere en ny!
Motivet på etiketten, er den gode soldat Svejk fra romanen af samme navn. Svejk drev officererne til vanvid med sin antiautoritære opførsel.
