Narragansett Bohemian PilsnerNarragansett Bohemian Pilsner
BEER INFO

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

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.

A perfect beer for a warm spring day as well as opening day Tiger baseball...although it's been a dud of a opening day so far.Pours into a pilsner glass a light to medium golden with a nice looking frothy blooming white crown atop that leaves multiple broken rings of lace as it settles slowly.Aromas are muted with a bit of toasted grain,peppery hops,and a faint nuttiness with is different for the style.A malt tilted pilsner with a firm grain flavor on the palate, a decent shot of peppery/spicy hops in the finish.A quaffing pilsner for sure because it's on the dryer side and lighter bodied,hey the Tiger game just got better!

The limited release imperial bohemian pilsner (its parental generation) was great. The
Drop in abv to 5.whatever it is, severely altered the taste. Still has a great mouthfeel. Looks alright. Good carbonation. Thats about it though.

Not so Bohemian, but a tasty, hoppy American pilsner. Yes, it's big floral Euro hops, but the character is on a scale you'd only see in an American beer. I was expecting a balanced beer with soft hops and crisp malts, but it's all hops with a decent (but not big) dry bitter kick.

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.

nice pale yellow and crystal clear

substantial head with solid lacing

subdued nose but nice herbal hops

mouthfeel is really nice and full on this one some definite body

taste is clean and crisp with a tasty hop finish

overall really like this one and is a great representaion of the style and kudos to narragansett for continuing to develop quality beers. Its a little late in the season for this one for me but will close out summer with this as my staple.

love the 6 pack of tall boys they offer there beer in and for $10 a great price performer.

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.
