Pilsen, which is located in the Western Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, is the home of the pilsner style of lager. Paler in color and generous in hopping, the pilsner was a new taste sensation in the late 19th century. Samuel Adams® Bohemian Pilsner follows in the tradition of these groundbreaking brews by going back to the future. Pale two-row pilsner-style malt blended with Harrington and Metcalfe pale malts give the beer a rich, golden color and clean malt finish. The spicy, citrus notes of the Noble Saaz hops gives the beer a sharp, smooth finish.
Samuel Adams have created two new styles, a Bohemian Pilsner and a Brown Ale. The “Beer Lover’s Choice” program kicks off with tasting events in bars across the U.S this September, and gives consumers the opportunity to taste both of the new beers and vote for their favorite. The winning brew will then make its debut in January, in the 2006 Brewmaster’s Collection, a mixed 12-pack of some of the most beloved Samuel Adams beers. It will also be offered in six-packs beginning in February.
