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.

I will just get straight to the point this is an average pilsner. A little better than some major companies like miller lite. I am not a fan of this beer. On a positive note this beer is smooth and crisp. Beer drinkers can enjoy this beer on a hot sunny day for something light and refreshing. This is my first czech style pilsner so take it for what its worth.

I had this on-tap in a pint glass at the Gordon Biersch in Seattle.

Appearance: rich golden hue with no haze and a nice layer of white foam. Attractive.

Smell: grainy with a sweet malt underneath and a reasonable dose of hops underneath. Not bad.

Taste: like the aroma, plenty of graininess up front yielding to a nice sweetness. Crisp, as it should be, with a good bitterness for the style. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and decent creaminess for the style.

Overall: a pretty good example of the style. I'm pleasantly surprised by it!
