Notes / Commercial Description:
Czech Pilsner is a crisp, golden, highly hopped lager. This style beer was first brewed in Pilsen, Czechoslovakia in 1842 using a sample of special yeast smuggled from Germany by a Czech monk. Until this time all beers were dark and cloudy. The new Czech Pilsner was the first beer to be brewed clear and golden.

Got this one at the SLS in Cedar City

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a two-finger foamy white head, with some very nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, nice little hop note. The taste is mostly malty, with some hop notes. Medium body, the finish is slightly dry and bitter. Overall a nice brew for a hot day, but would not buy again.
