Monteith’s Pilsner Beer is a Bohemian-style lager in the heritage of extremely hopped blonde beers brewed in parts of Eastern Europe. It has a complex hop aroma and a rich hop bitterness characteristic of this tradition in brewing.
Monteith’s Pilsner Beer has a malty quality that includes smooth caramel characteristics from the use of Vienna-style crystal malts. The key flavour is its enormous hop character, crafted around this complex malt flavour.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

Pretty boring and very mass produced tasting. No doubt this is probably a cash cow for the parent company. Easy drinking, but with few truly redeeming qualities. These guys should be doing better with the possibilities with this style.

Pyobon (1392) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden, no head. Complicated aroma with candy, fruit, perfume and grass. Medium body, light carbonation. Rather bland flavour - pleasant tangy malty start with some hops but little bitterness in the finish. Overall it’s definitely drinkable but not terribly interesting.

hawthorne00 (3906) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle. Gold, white head, high bead. Aroma has moderate amount of malt and rather muddled-smelling hops. Taste is firm malt and just a little bitterness. I’ve had Pils where the bitterness isn’t that high, but there’s just not enough here to make this anything more than an OK Kiwi lager.

phaleslu (10126) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is hops, grass, grain, and malt. Flavor follows suit, with a sweet and moderately bitter quality. Light bodied. Too grainy, which masks some of the hops, but still has a decent earthiness to it. Not bad for the style because it doesn’t have the Euro skunkiness that so many of its peers have.

fonefan (48790) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2009
Bottle 330ml.
Clear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, fruity, sugar, moderate hoppy, grass, light yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft and sticky. [20090514]

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2009
[Bottle] Pours a clear shade of yellow with some white foamy head. Light grainy aroma. Tastes pretty similar, with a noticeable crisp hop finish. The only thing saving this beer is the fact the palate is pretty good for the style. High carbonation. It’s not too bad, but I was expecting more after trying Monteith’s Black.

mickmac (485) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a big white head over a clear golden body. No aroma of note. Body balances the sweetness of malt and the hoppy bitterness. Nothing special.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottle. The aroma is not great - lacks true Saaz character of a Czech style pils. The flavour is a slight improvement, but my overall impression is just another boring pils.

VertBaconStrips (2387) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JUN 2, 2009
Bought it a place that I think was called Trader Joe’s in Temecula, CA. It’s just north of the mall. Dumped out a pale gold with a white weak quick death head - bubbles....going going gone. Meh. Smelt ok, but nothing out of the ordinary - sweet, grass, hops, malts. Christ, I’ve got the Westmalle Tripel hiccups....Taste ,well, quite drinkable considering tasting fake - plain malts, hops, grain and this "I made this in my basement and bottled it in old plastic pop bottles". Went down prety smooth leaving a good bitter aftertaste - just a little slick though.
