Brewed by:
Boundary Road Brewery
New Zealand (Aotearoa)

Style: Czech Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Bouncing Czech is named after the town of Pizen (Pilsen) in what is now the Czech Republic. For centuries Pizen produced a beer famed for its strong hoppy taste. For a similar style we use NZ Cascade and Pacifica hops to produce a characterful pilsener with explosions of citrus. It'll bounce round your mouth like a rabbit on a trampoline.

Purchased and consumed in Dunedin NZ on New Years Day. 330ml brown bottle BB dated 25 Oct. 2014.

Not too much visible carbonation; otherwise, looks like a typical pilsner: pours golden with excellent clarity.

Aroma: pleasant but rather fruity and floral for style.

Flavor: truer to style than the aroma, but the floral and fruity notes from New Zealand hops still shine through. Perhaps a bit more hoppy but no more bitter than the average Czech pilsner. Appropriate malts for balance mainly appear as a limitation on bitterness.

Feel: medium-light body; nice crisp carbonation.

O: a bold pilsner with a distinct New Zealand note from the hops. Not quite as good as the local Emersons Pilsner I had earlier today.

Got a six pack from the supermarket on sale for $12.99. From notes.

A - Pours golden and light, bright, good carbonation, two finger white head, nice drapes of lace and a film of retention.

S - Lemon, grass, some citrus and tropical fruit.

T - Tropical fruit, grassy, some lemon.

M - Good carbonation, medium-ish body, some good bitterness.

O/D - A nice pils. Not the most adventurous from New Zealand but it's cheap and fairly tasty. Good value.
