This American version of a traditional Bohemian Pilsner is a true lager, brewed to emulate the original style born in Plzen, Czechoslovakia. Berkshire uses authentic Pilsner floor malt from the Czech Republic in this classic beer. Light in color, our Pilsner is dry and crisp, and pungently hopped with Czech Saaz hops to impart a rich aroma, with a subtle bitterness to the finish.

Leighton (21853) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. Sweet biscuity malts in the nose with light notes of straw. Medium sweet flavor, some nice doughy bread, light bitter straw, some white sugar. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty clean finish, more sweet, white bread malts, mild bitterness. Not too complex. Very easy.

Drake (14038) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bomber from Whole Foods Market Darien. Pouurs a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral and grassy hops and bready malts. The taste is grassy and floral with a pale malt finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

I drank this in a hotel room and had to drink from a clear plastic cup, came from a 22 oz. bottle I got at a package store in Enfield, CT. Paid $4.33. Nose was cereal grains, malt and some mild hops. The bottle had time to warm on my drive and check- in to the hotel and I got to say, the flavor was nice. Very good balance between malt and hops, a short, crisp finish. Lots of grass notes. Decent flavor here. I would buy and drink again if I’m looking for a lighter summer beer.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Pours copper/gold with a thick white head. Smells of saaz hops, crisp, dry pilsner malt, touches of apple. Tastes of dry malt, some spicy hints and some residual sweetness on the finish.

Table and vine tasting, nothing and cardboard. Wow whatever man someone will drink it

thornecb (5993) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours pale gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Caramel and saaz aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning to slightly sour hay in the medium length finish.

johnnnniee (4376) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle at America on Tap slightly hazy light golden color. Aromas of sweet bready malt and plenty of diacytyl. Not nearly dry enough or hoppy enough to be a Czech pilsner.

alobar (3863) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Clear straw yellow color with aroma lemon, grass, and honey. Lemon citrus flavor with honey sweetness, and a grain balance. Very nice beer for summer.

beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left very light lace. The aroma is weak malt along with some restrained grassy hops. The flavor is malt followed by some grassy hops with some mild-moderate bitterness. Ever-so-slightly sweet. A nice bready flavor emerges in the aftertaste. Crisp at the finish and spot on for the style. Good stuff.
