a crisp and well made pilsener here, stronger than some, and stronger than it is listed here. the can now says 6% abv. i like it being a bit more robust here, it takes more grain to get there, and this has a little bigger of a malt base to it than a lot of craft pils types these days, which seem engaged in a race to the bottom to be as light as possible, so this one is appreciated. noble hop profile, spicy even, but a hit of cascade or something to it too, more intense and a little higher alpha than i am used to in the noble types, but it isnt abrasive or out of balance in the flavor at all. the high carbonation whisks this one along a little fast, it never gets overly heavy because of how quick and dry it is, i think at the expense of some flavor even, but ill never complain about a well carbonated beer like this. its refreshing and drinkable, and even my molson drinking dad guzzled a four pack of pint cans yesterday, so its mighty appealing for just about any beer drinker i have to think. fresh in flavor and bright in feel, perfect for day drinking in the summertime. first beer i have had from rock art in awhile.

Review from BA Mag Issue #117 ( Oct 2016 )

Clean, Bready, Raw, Quaffable
The clarity of a true Pils with the lacing to match. Rock Art’s Bohemian Pilsner smells of fresh cut hay, spicy herbal hops, and a hint of sulphur. Clean but a bit rustic, it’s smooth and crisp with some slightly sharp hop bitterness and a grainy bite. Another sip loads up the palate with more grainy and spicy hops flavor. A bit aggressive but still balanced overall, with a hint of alcohol in the finish. Refreshing and to style, it’s good to see this ale brewer spread its wings by producing a solid lager. Well done!

This was poured into a pilsner glass. The appearance was a glossy burnt orange color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising towards a quickly dissipating one finger white foamy head. Mild foamy white lacing stuck around the glass and then slid nicely. The smell started off with some sweet biscuit/breadiness. Subtle sweet grassy hops slide in for the balance. The taste was mildly sweet with the grassy hops making a decent effort to balance. Super light biscuity aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good for a pilsner. Nothing wrong with it. Overall, Czech Pilsner, damn right it is and a nice one that I would be willing to come back to.

From the one pint can dated 04/05/2016.. Sampled June 11, 2016.

The pour is yellow with bubbling carbonation leading up to a quick lived white head.

Good toasted bread and grainy malt aroma along with grass and a hint of lemon zest.

Light body but still very creamy and smooth.

Same toasted bread and biscuit flavor with a clean, crisp and mildly dry finish. All around a decent Pilsener.

Poured from a can dated 3/16/16 into a pilsner glass.
A - Wonderful golden straw color, steady carbonation feeds a quickly dissipating cap.
S - Floral noble hops, a bit of pilsner DMS but not offensive, nice malt base.
T - Well executed, floor malts, a touch of breadiness, and the a clean sweep by just enough hops.
M - Lite in body, delicate in its presentation, a nice dry finish.
O - A well executed Pilsner from Rock Art.

Cheers all

Pours a slightly foggy golden straw color with a modest bubbly white head. Head fades fast and doesn't leave much lacing.

The aroma is slightly bready and spicy up front, with lots of sweet bananas and cloves on the back end.

The flavor is sweet and doughy, with a light grassy flavor following behind. A little hoppier than expected.

The mouth is medium bodied with relatively good carbonation. Very crisp and extremely refreshing.

Overall, a pretty good Pilsener that is both flavorful and refreshing. Just how a good Pilsener should be.

I am always up for a good pilsner, this is a great everyday pilsner. Had it on tap at the brewey, haven't seen it in bottles. Get some if you can! Brought home a growler, hope I can get more locally after this one is gone. Great taste, nice deep golden color, nice bubbles but not overwhelming, head fades quickly with some lacing.
