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.

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.

Draught at The Beerhive, Salt Lake City, UT. Clear deep golden, brief head. As it wamrs Earl Grey tea-like hops gets ever more prominent. medium bodied with clean mouthfeel, some butter and hay. Quite sweetwith medium bitterness. All the flavours from a real Czech pilseners are there, but comparing with Czech craft brewers the malt profile is too hard, clean and uninviting.

Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 23, 2010
12 oz can from a tourist trap in Bryce. Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Odd nutty nose with some floral hop. Flavor, in a word, sucks - nutty malts and a light floral hit. Lingering soured nut finish. Poor.

( 12oz can, provided by ericandersnavy ) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grass, and metal. Flavor of grass, grain, and cardboard with a dry, metallic finish.

12oz can. Pours a bright, lightly tarnished honey color; thin off-white head with solid fine-bubbled lacing. A basically non-existent aroma of honey, light maltiness, and a cardboard note; very bland. Light-to-medium mouthfeel: a heavy, syrupy honey note at the core; definitely uncharacteristically heavy; one-dimensional otherwise, just a note of honey, some bready malts, and a slightly sticky sweetness; just difficult to drink a lot of this; poorly crafted and minimally hopped; I don’t feel like I’m in the Czech Republic, sadly. Medium finish of toasty malts and lingering honey sweetness; still slightly heavy at the far end.

thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2009
( 12oz can thanks to ericandersnavy) Pours clear pale yellow with some bubbles. Nose of honey, and crisp citrus hops. Taste is honey, light citrus hops and has a crisp sweet finish. A drinkable beer.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Draft at brewery, late summer ’09: Bright and clear gold hue. Smooth, light and easy to drink. Toasty malts. Flowery-grassy hop bitterness with just OK aromas. No major complaints, but nothing too exciting, either.

2.3
travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Can thanks to ericandersnavy. The look is clear, golden in color, with a white head. The smell is grains and corn. The taste is corn and grains. Not a whole lot of going.
