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.

The aroma is hoppy with a lemony/grassy type of hop and the malt is only slightly sweet.The appearance is golden with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent end. The palate is thin but right for the style. Overall I found the beer unenjoyable. It looked nice with a foamy head and the beer seems right for the style but it’s not enjoyable in any way.

Pours golden, topped with the firm white head, looks the part. The nose is floral, orange blossom and a touch of hay. Tastes lightly grainy, biscuity and with a good dose of bitterness, tastes the part of a proper Czech lager. Perhaps a little thin in the body but otherwise on the nail.

Can thanks to Douglas. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced. Aroma has a nice crispness with some grass hops and a nice hay and grain backbone. Flavor is similar with a nice crispness, light grass hops and a grain and bread backbone.

Pretty. I’ll give it that. But I’m having a hard time getting over the green-apple-yeast flavor that lingers on the tongue after you sip this pint. The taste isn’t entirely off, but you wish the Saaz hops played a bigger role in balancing out this tart bastard. Eventually the flavor fades into a metallic, lemony aftertaste, not pleasant and quite prolonged. Nice lacing down my glass, though.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 19, 2011
12oz can courtesy of Jersey Joe. Rating #49. Hazy dark yellow pour, I’m thinking it’s more of a chill haze than anything else, moderate to decent lacing from a slightly creamy white head. Slightly grassy aroma, malty and a bit oxidized. Nice little bitter bite to it, pretty crisp and not too bad. (1507)

on tap 7/22/10. deep straw yellow color with a fluffy white head which leaves behind tons of foamy lace. bready aroma... mixed with florals, peppery spice, lemon, some grassiness and pils malt. the flavor is the same.... with a spicy dry finish and notes of nobles and straw. medium bodied, crisp and terribly sessionable. this needs to be in phx! 7.5/4/7.5/4/17/4.0

Clear gold pour with a foamy head. Light aroma of grain and citrus. Flavor is sweet malt and a hint of fruit and citrus hop. A nice light lager.

This beer just says mediocrity. Drinkable and light, but there are much better pilseners and other light beers available. Better than mass market, but that’s about all.
