I’m not a fan of dark beers, but this is excellent. Bohemian has done it right with this one. Lots of good dark malty sweetness lightly hopped smooth, would recommend.

Bohemian Czechulator Doppelbock
Poured from a 12 ounce can.
This beer is brilliantly clear, the head dissapated quickly.
The aroma is dominated by toasted bready malts, bread crust.
The flavor is very toasted malt focused, bready, toast, some alcohol fruitiness in the finish.
I enjoy a Dopplebock that is a little more malty and not so focused on the toasted malt aspect.

Bohemian Brewery Noble Hefeweizen
Draft. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cracker), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, lemon zest, clove. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A straightforward, light rendition that nonetheless delivers the expected goods for the style, other than the expected lack of body and texture. A thankfully clean and perfectly solid entry. They should make a full strength version of this, methinks.

Bohemian Brewery Bavarian Weiss
Draft. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (cracker, light bread), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a light note of lemon zest. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Little to no German Weissbier yeast character, but if they’re still making this with Czech lager yeast, that explains that. And indeed, it is mostly a malty affair (and pretty nice malt at that), with a little yeast and lemony character. Simple and light, but better than usual from this very inconsistent brewery.

Bohemian Brewery Dortmunder Export Lager
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of metal, cement, acetone. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Yet more evidence Bohemian is a one-beer pony. So strange. This is very industrial (metal, concrete, nail polish remover, husks, etc.) like so many east European and Russian swill lagers, pretty much impossible to enjoy.

Bohemian Brewery Düsseldorfer Altbier
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cereal, caramel, nuts, wort). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Another miss from this brewery, which continues to perplex. One great beer and lots of mysterious clunkers. Raw and sweet and crude.

Bohemian Brewery 1842 Czech Pilsener
Draft at the brewery. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, cracker), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with notes of minerals and straw/hay. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Well, shucks. I’ve had three draft samples of this now and the quality is all over the place...3.9 at the brewpub on Friday, 2.2 garbage at Beerhive over the weekend, and 3.4 at the brewpub today. This seems to jive with overall impressions from their other beers...e.g., my friend Jeff had a very solid sample of the Dort, but mine (bought at the brewpub) was horrible. As with so many breweries in the world (including Germany), this place just doesn’t have the consistency factor (yet?). You may luck out with a great sample of this, or it might just be ok, or it might be terrible.

Bohemian Brewery Cottonwood Common
Draft at the brewery. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. A clean, nicely balanced quaffer. Nothing special, but has more stuffing than most of the other draft brews here, presumably designed for folks who want something "hoppy", a la pale ale. But the pils is the obvious winner in all respects.

Bohemian Brewery Munich Dark Lager
Draft at the brewery. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, fully lasting. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, nuts). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Yet another ultra-dull example here. I’ll give the two Weissbiers a try eventually, but so far the pils is the only true stand-out beer.

Bohemian Brewery 1841 Viennese Amber Lager
Draft at the brewery. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. At first I thought I was given the wrong beer because the color was so much paler than expected, but that’s partly because this was a sample in a narrow glass. Great head retention, as usual. Whereas the Czech pils aroma leaped from the same sort of glass, this seems to hide and say nothing at all. And just sweet and flabby in the mouth. Not as bad as the Schwarz, but very dull. I’m really pleased they got the pils dialed in, but it sure would be nice if their other brews were closer to that level.

Bohemian Brewery Cherny Bock
Draft at the brewery. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (malt syrup, wort, roasted grain, husks). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Shockingly poor compared to the wonderful Czech pils. How does the same brewery make both? Raw and dirty and rather sour too...couldn’t even stomach a 2oz sample.

Bohemian Brewery 1842 Czech Pilsener
From can it’s filtered gold with a lasting white head. Clean, floral-citric noble hop aroma comes across as honeysuckle, lemon, apricot nectar, spicy touches of black fennel; clean fermentation provides clarity for hop and malt (which imparts a baked baguette toastiness), while the yeast imparts a subtle sulfur-mineral quality. Off-dry, hoppy and bitter, light-bodied but fluffy with a fun bounce of carbonation, finishing fruity and juicy with a small bit of pineapple twang that I didn’t get from tap (better carbonation and balance than the cans, going from memory). Canned 6/29/16, so age may be a factor, but even so it’s still in fine shape.

Toast and honey, fall leaves and paper, sweet pastries and artificial apricot hoppiness. Light bodied, sweet with low bitterness, kind of unremarkable and plain but it is clean and the carbonation suits the sweetness and body.

From tap it’s clear chestnut brown with decent head retention. Aroma is malty in the way of chocolate, caramel, almond, dates; cleanly fermented and minimally hoppy. It’s sweet and light bodied with low bitterness, finishing crisp with lingering chocolate caramel chew maltiness. Very drinkable, uncomplicated lager.

They are calling this a Schwarzbier now on their menu, FWIW. Tap. Pours deep clear Ruby black, medium beige head, good lacing. Aroma is super roasty, lactose, a bit ashy. Flavor has a touch too much sweetness, light bitterness. A bit odd. Stale coffee? Light plus body.

Bohemian Brewery Helles Bock
Canned on June 1, 2016. Rust with golden highlights. Puffy collar encircles a broken wisp of foam. Interesting aroma of lemon curd, honey-soaked poundcake, hay, and orange rock candy. Soft carbonic prickles. Opens with a tongue-lapping honeyed richness and supple marmalade characteristics, which are briefly lifted by a drying surge of malt-derived hay dust. Some cleanness is exchanged for character as prevalent lemon curdy yeast notes leave their mark. Complex hoppiness reinforces the fairly weighty residuals with tremendously high oiliness. Buried within the hops are subtler, albeit short-lived, shades of honeysuckle nectar and a tease of lemon. Well-integrated bitterness zings with a dense lemon candy notion as well as some grassy shades which offer momentary distraction from the sugars and allow the finer malt details of wafer cookie and hay dust to poke through. Some mineralic brightness helps as well. A limpness does develop however, due to the incessant sugariness which hints at gummy candy. Well-textured malt anchors the hops with a honeyed poundcake richness, although it feels overcrowded. No melanoidins detected, despite the malt complexity. Finishes predominantly sweet and approaching viscous, with a tinge of mineral-induced dryness tempered by Turkish apricot. The brewers have proven in their lightweight 4% Czech-style pils that they can produce a clean, melanoidin-rich malt bomb from an uncomplicated list of ingredients, yet they’ve curiously chosen a complex malt bill for this. Consequently it comes off as aimless and nearly syrupy. No real flaws aside from being fatiguingly sugary, and the alcohol is well disguised, but perhaps they need to retool this and start that process by drying this out and simplifying the malt bill. Thanks to sledutah for the can.
