A light amber cold fermented lager with moderate hop aroma and flavour with a bitter finish. Brewed at Lobethal Bierhaus using the finest available malted barley, a blend of carefully chosen hops and Bohemian pilsner yeasts, this lager style (meaning “to store” due to extended maturation) is based on the famous pilsners brewed in the Czech Republic.

mkel07 (5679) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2011
330ml bottle. A good solid amber colour with an even level layer of white foam. Strong to moderate hop aroma and a good strong body with mild bitterness that leads to a dryness on the palate. Sweet malty flavour.

hawthorne00 (3808) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma of bread, hay, earth and spices. Czech weight malt is sweet and bready, solid bitter finish. Rustic. Not bad at all.

KeefOz (1785) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2014
Tasted 30/8/2014. Draught at The Wheatsheaf Hotel, Thebarton, Adelaide. Poured a clear golden amber with a few millimetres of white bubbles that diminished to a collar. Laced OK. Carbonation very low. Aroma subtly of malt. Taste subtly of malt, subtle bitterness, and possibly lemon citrus. Light body. Dry finish with a bit of lemon citrus and with a subtle lingering bitterness. OK.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy golden with a thin white head that didn’t stick around. Aroma and flavour of malt and some fruity hops. Thin-medium bodied with decent carbonation. Seriously lacking true Czech style hopping and only just passable to be enjoyed. A less than inspiring pils.

fletchfighters (1493) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2012
330 ML bottle Bottled August 2012 Golden straw color, bright white head, some streaky lacing. Nose is of toasted bread and grassy, citrus hops. Pretty simple really. Taste is pretty similar to the above. More hop bite in front and back than what expected. Pretty much bread followed by some grassy and citrus hops. or the other way around in the back. Clean and crisp. Good carbonation and body to this. Not really exciting ut a decently made beer.

Maris (1463) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 20/2/2012 (Batch No. BP020, bottled Dec 2011). Pours a slightly cloudy light golden with a biggish head. Has a moderate grassy, fruity, slightly floral aroma. Flavour wise, it has a lovely fruity flavour (green apple and apricot), a dash of doughy yeast, and a nice sharp hop finish. This is a very good, tasty pilsener, and I’m surprised by the modest scores it’s received on here so far. Not sure why its called ’Philsner’.

floydian1 (1433) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear straw yellow pour with small but persistent white head. Sweet honey malt grains on the nose with a touch of lemony citrus. Taste is too sweet to be a genuine Bohemian Pilsner lacking the dry hop bitterness I associate with this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TedE (1212) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2017
Pint on tap at Wheatsheaf, Thebarton. It’s a classic golden amber beer with a thin white head. The occasional bubble makes its’ lazy trek up the glass. Grainy nose. Bitterness is quite harsh at first taste but mellows. Medium body, smooth texture. Finish is grain with a malt background. Straight-forward Pils, nothing special.

Bottle exploded with fizz onto the floor. Not a good start but recovered with a reddish malti pils flavour which was very good. Need to try agains.
