Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: marc77 on 04-13-2003

The birth of Pilsner beer can be traced back to its namesake, the ancient city of Plzen (or Pilsen) which is situated in the western half of the Czech Republic in what was once Czechoslovakia and previously part of the of Bohemian Kingdom. Pilsner beer was first brewed back in the 1840's when the citizens, brewers and maltsters of Plzen formed a brewer's guild and called it the People's Brewery of Pilsen.

The Czech Pilsner, or sometimes known as the Bohemian Pilsner, is light straw to golden color and crystal clear. Hops are very prevalent with a spicy bitterness and or a spicy floral flavor and aroma, notably one of the defining characteristics of the Saaz hop. Smooth and crisp with a clean malty palate.

Some commercial examples are… Pilsner Urquell, Budvar and Golden Pheasant.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of pale malt, sweet malt, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of a Czech Pilsener. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of grain, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of hops, and hint of roasted malt. Overall, strong grain aroma, but still a good blend.

Enjoyed on tap the the brewpub. This beer features a bery nice Saaz aroma with some malt sweetness to back it up. Served with no head, the beer is straw yellow with some orange-ish highlights. Very will balacnced between the Saaz bitterness and malt backbone. Medium bodied with livley carbonation. The entire time I was dinking it I was thinking to myself "So that’s what a fresh Cezch Pils tastes like".

Crystal clear dark straw. Billowy, well retained porcelain white head leaves Belgian lace. Crisp, lightly grassy Saaz hop nose along with mellow bready sweetness in aroma. Soft grainy sweetness upfront is quickly overrun by assertive, lingering, but clean hop bitterness. Spicy hop flavor, with an herbal tinge. Lightly bodied, pleasantly dextrinous in mouthfeel. Trace husky grain late. Finishes, dry, bitter and satisfying. An excellent pilsner with a striking hop profile. Malt nuances were subued as a result. Akin to a more attractive Victory Prima Pils.
