BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Narragansett Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States

Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Roll out the Barrel: Narragansett Bohemian Pils is a craft offering joining the flagship Lager and Light in the year-round line-up, which is complemented by seasonal craft offerings and limited-edition releases. Narragansett Bohemian Pils is available in six packs of 16-ounce cans and on draft. The beer contains 5.2% ABV and 30 IBUs (International Bitterness Units).

Quality Supreme: The Narragansett Bohemian Pils was styled after the Narragansett Imperial Bohemian Pilsner, a limited edition offering in the brand’s Private Stock series, released earlier in 2013. Brewed under the supervision of award-winning Brewmaster Sean Larkin, the Pils is filtered for a flavorful, sessionable beer experience. Winner of a gold medal in the Pilsner category at the 2013 World Beer Championships.

Taste & Enjoy: A flavorful yet easy-drinking, refreshing beer; this brew features the nuanced flavor of Pale malt, Pilsner malt, Wheat malt and Cara Blonde malt up front, balanced with the bitterness of Northern Brewer and Hallertau hops. Tons of flavor and yet still highly drinkable.

The History: Honoring the long-standing tradition of lager brewing established by the original German founders, Narragansett chose a lager-style beer to expand our year-round craft offerings. While many craft breweries today are focused on ale-style beers, lager continues to be ‘Gansett’s signature style, as seen in the Marzen-style Fest, Helles Bock and flagship offerings Lager and Light. The packaging and style were inspired by the Pilsner style beer that was produced by ‘Gansett in the early 1900’s.

This beer was bought at Trader Joes outside Narragansett's normal distribution. It's a very good European style Pilsener contract brewed in Rochester. Excellent balanced flavor. i prefer this to most of the current crop of pilseners/lagers from other craft brewers.

Golden body with half a finger of white head. Aroma and taste of melon and pear, malty and crackery as well. Not as crisp of a finish as better pilsners showcase. This one had a fuller mouthfeel that I found less appealing for the style.

Clear golden body with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of grains, corn. Straight forward with notes of corn and sweet lager yeast. Light bodied with a tangy finish. Decent.

Feel was think compared to class German brewed pils. Hops were muted and somewhat overwhelmed by body.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, grains, a bit sweet. Taste is grassy, grains, malts, refreshing and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Pour it out. A little skunky sometimes, but always a great tasting and unique Pilsner.

Poured a reddish copper color with a 4F head in a Brooklyn Octoberfest glass.

Light fruit-malt aroma.

The mf is malty, medium bodied.

Taste is excellent. Lots of flavor for a low abv session beer. Rich fruit and malt. Spice.
Smooth. More pronounced flavor than other American pilsners I have tasted.

Overall: another excellent Naragansett beer. Very drinkable, malty, fruity, spicy, and
inexpensive.
