COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Czech Pilsener (a.k.a. Bohemian Pilsner) is the purest of beers - in our eyes. Clear and golden in color, light and crisp in taste. Our lager is well aged from real Pilzen Malt and actual imported Czech Yeast from Branik - Prague, Czech Republic. Only the finest Saaz hops are used to emulated this outside-of Pilzen, Pilsener. Crafted after one of our favorite Pilsners, Pilsner Urquell - you won’t be disappointed in this true Czech beer. The closest thing to Bohemian Pilsner you can get without actually being in the Czech Republic.

First brewed in 1842 and taking its name from the city of Pilsen in western Bohemia, pilsener is the original golden lager. The signature taste of Czech Saaz hops complement pale pilsener malt to create the most famous and beloved style of all Czech beers.

4% A.B.V. / 32 IBUs / Color: PALE GOLDEN / AVAILABLE: On draft at Bohemian Brewery and select bars, and in 6 & 12-packs at convenience & grocery stores.

Can poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, yeast and bread dough. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread dough and lemon zest with a smooth dry lingering citrus finish.

Golden beer out of the can with a light haze. Short lived fluffy white head. Light spicey nose with some lemongrass. LIght, crisp beer with some buscuit and white bread, along with bitter orange and lemon notes. The finish has a long metallic bitterness in it. Good with chili.

Draft at the Timber Mine in Ogden. Strange place, decent beer. It went well with steak but overall it just seems a little non-nondescript. Fine

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Poured into a pils glass. 2.5 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two and a half fingers of foamy white head. Retention is a bit below average and very little lacing is left. 2.5 S: Dirty herbalness makes this a lot less clean than I like my pilsners. Something along the lines of breadiness, but not less clean. Light grassy and hay qualities. 2.0 T: Less clean than the nose. The pseudo-breadiness is more intense and I don’t like it. Lightly grassy again with some hay. The problem is that the yeast wasn’t allowed to work cleanly. 2.0 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Too thick and muddled and lacking crispness. Carbonation level is fine though. 2.0 D: Not a good beer. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 06-28-2012 23:46:08

BlackHaddock (6980) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
June 2010: 12 oz Can (4% ABV) picked up at Ruby’s Inn outsdie Bryce Canyon NP. Sat outside our motel room I poured the can into two toothbrush plastic cups, I had nothing else to use! The beer was a golden pilsner colour (what a suprise) and had a pure white head which gave some good lacing on our plastic cups. My notes mention a good body depth, that the beer had character and good attributes which came through from the start of the tasting. All in all, a good pilsner, as good as many original Czech ones I’ve reviewed anyway.

Slight strange aroma of mouldy cheese. Floral taste with pepper and grapefruit finish. Bitterness lingers. Apart from peculiar aroma, very drinkable.
