COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 1842 Josef Groll, the ’just hired’ brewer in Pilsen, Bohemia, brewed a light golden lager with local malt, hops from Saaz, and yeast he had clandestinely brought along from his previous employer in Munich. A new classic was born by the name of Pilsner Urquell (German for the fountainhead of Pilsen). Whoever has tried it will remember it for its golden coulur, pronounced maltiness, assertive bitterness and intense Saaz hop aroma. Our interpretation ofths beer classic is this month’s seasonal brew.

2015-06-06. Crisp dark yellow body small white head and good lace. 3+ Mild Aroma, pleasant floral hops. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, lightly grassy, floral hops throughout. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Solid take on the style. A touch too mild for my tastes. 6/4/7/3/13+ On tap at Brewsters Century Park, Edmonton.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 Nice hoppy pilsner, clean and super light. Easy drinking summer beer despite the high bitterness. Brewsters calgary

On tap, while on vacation, at the brewpub in Edmonton (south side), Alberta. Pours clear straw color with small creamy head and lacing. Aroma: faint floral, honey, biscuit, lemon. Flavor: honeywater, biscuit, white pepper, prickly hops. Mouthfeel: light-bodied, fresh tasting, crisp, clean; nice balance.

Ferris (17799) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2016
Draft - Light grainy bitterness. Clear gold with a decent white head. Nice grainy notes with a touch of sweetness and bitterness. Solid.

3.3
AgentAle (1880) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2015
Aroma is clove, lemon grass, light sweet euro malts. Taste light sweet and dry malts that are balanced well with a pretty bastic bitterness. Finishes crisply and smoothly. Appearance is a yellow /orange clear body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

jonas (8551) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2014
Tap at Brewsters 11th av. Golden, fine carbonation. Golden cream. Fine leafy hop aromatics on a full chewy base, dry grassy, light earthy finish. Green aftertastste. Might not exactly be a Czech pils, but it is interesting what they did with saaz and sterling here.

Light golden, earthy, lots of sort of stale saaz, light body, clean...good but the saaz aren’t as fresh as they need to be...fresher hops would make this a decent pils. Not sure the vampire-Czech thing either. Vampires were Romania, right?

Masterkush7 (581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
An enjoyable pilsner. A light golden color. Aroma is of grains and some light citrus from the hops. Flavour is quite good with light grainyness and some nice saaz hop flavours. I'm more of an ale guy myself but this is a pilsner I really enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eyrish (92) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Nice deep gold colour, small creamy white head. Mild malt aroma with a tinge of caramel. Flavour is strong malts, again with a trace of caramel. Long bitter finish. Creamy body. Good but the malts seemed a little caramelized. Rerate: Whatever right? Nobody cares... Beer

3.3
bulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
On tap at Brewsters Castledowns. Clear yellow colour, nice white foam, medium retention. Aroma is pleasant, generously hopped. Mouthfeel is bubbly and crisp, medium carbonation. Taste is hint of sweet malt, dries out in the fairly smooth finish with a nice hoppy presence. Delicious.
