Notes: A light, dry, crisp lager with a bready finish.

Traveling all the way from Germany, our founder was drawn to this region and started brewing back in 1859. Our Bohemian Girl brand is a tribute to that same spirit of wanderlust and appreciation for nature that brings us all to the Rocky Mountains. To recreate this classic Denver brand, we combined Premium Pilsner and Rye Malt with generous portions of Czech Saaz hops. The end result is a light-bodied, dry, crisp golden lager with an aroma reminiscent of freshly baked bread and floral finish.

An attractive golden straw color and a healthy head of pale foam. Just a tad bit hoppier than most Pilsners, but not overpowering. A deliciously dry brew. The brewery recommends pairing with seafood and salads, but I would enjoy this brew with any food.

Pours a foggy straw with a finger of white foam. Head retention is good. Aroma is straw, corn, zesty, spicy hops and a touch of biscuity, wafery malts. Corn adds a touch of sweetness with the wafery, biscuity malts grounding it out. Flavor profile is corn, zesty, spicy, herbal hops, straw, lemongrass, a bit of caramel and wafery, crackery malts. It opens up sweet and remains sweet all the way through, just curving a bit towards malty bitter balance at the finish. Mouth feel is light and crisp with a soft, expansive texture that coats the tongue. Overall, lightly sweet with a modest crispness for a refreshing, but not awe-inspiring, beer.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 12oz can.

Just a touch too hoppy for a pilsner in my mind, but only warranting a small deduction. It's still great on a warm day, and you could put down a few of these without much trouble. Everyone knows their Helles lager, and I do like that a bit more, but this is a nice light alternative if you want to try something else.

Brief initial impressions from a bottle:

Crisp, clean, and faintly bready. Has a bit more body than a traditional German pilsner would, but it's still quite light on the palate. Refreshing as well.

Pilsner malts are there, but rye's signature spiciness is present as well. It's a ballsy move putting rye malt in a pilsner, and I'm not sure it worked out for Tivoli.

Grassy hop flavours are abundant, but it's also slightly floral.

A bit crackery - even dry. Overcarbonated. Smooth.

Very drinkable. A competent pilsner, but nevertheless inferior to traditional German and Austrian expressions of the style - even those that are widely distributed in Tivoli's market and can often found on-sale (e.g. Trumer).

B- (3.33) / WORTHY

09.08.17 2nd impression from another bottle:

Aptly grassy but a bit dry, reducing drinkability.

these dry and crisp old world lagers are what tivoli is doing best, and while i think i still prefer their helles, this is a really good take on the style, and its both affordable and drinkable, a wonderful combination for any beer! on tap at the very cool syntax bar on broadway, and a wonderful compliment to a lot of their interesting food there, from the charcuterie board to the fry bread tacos, this light, dry, bubbly, and mild brew is a nice companion. crystal clear and really lively from the tap, with a soft pilsener malt aroma, fresher than any import, and a slight detection of lager yeast, but basically no hops in the nose at all. the flavor has a little floral hop element to the finish, but not a hair more bitterness than is needed for balance. its bready and bone dry, light and super refreshing, a great palate cleanser but also worthy outside of a food context. i agree with other reviewers that part of its charm is its unpretentious, under the radar sort of nature, it just is what it is, and i really like that. made with great understanding of tradition and ingredients, the yeast is just flavorful enough, cold conditioning appears patient, and overall, this is one of the better lagers being made in denver right now! go try one with an open mind if you havent already!

edit: i will leave scores as they are on this, but i was disappointed with a recent pint at their location inside toms urban at the denver airport, a place where this should be as good as it gets. the corporate influence at an airport though is always impossible to escape, and in a place where you need a key code on each tap handle to pour a beer and two thirds of the beers on the menu are out, my expectations on how they deal with quality are pretty low. still, tivoli puts their name on this place and probably needs to find a way to be a little more involved. this was sweet and almost soapy tasting, not old but definitely not right, not what i remember, hopefully they get that figured out quickly!

The body still exhibits a beautiful pale straw yellow body while the head is thick and dense with a creamy, sculpted appearance. The aroma has a soft lemony and grassy scent. Lots of wheat and biscuit malt taste; very good and balanced bitterness. Medium-light body; crisp and dry.

A much tastier and nicer looking beer this time around.
Pale yellow body; decent carbonation; one-finger thick head; creamy, lasting, with rings down the glass. Mild bread crust-like smell; a little metallic; grassy. Mild, toasty malt flavor with some complementary bittering qualities. Medium body; very light malt sweetness yet finishes with an overall dry quality.

A nicely done, somewhat old-school pilsner that drinks easily. Unpretentious yet sublimely satisfying. A nice warm, lazy afternoon thirst quencher...

Bright clear pilsner, nice bone white head that lasts better than expected, stays for the whole glass. Nose is a bit mild, mostly lightly toasted grains/husks with touch of spicy hops. Taste is refreshingly light and subdued. A touch of spicy Saaz keeps things interesting. Finishes pretty clean with lingering oily hops in there. Light but not effervescent; could have been boring but manages to be a bit more than the sum of its parts. Good summer patio beer, would go well with hearty bar food
