I'm drinking a Gambrinus Original 10 - a Czech lager with 4% alcohol. I know the 10 means it's brewed at 10 degrees plato. I have a Polish friend who mentioned the fact that he likes that Polish beers often have a 12 degrees and above plato which generally produces higher alcohol. I've also seen a Polish beer reviewer on youtube mention Plato, which I believe has something to do with attenuation. Czech pils of 5% alcohol typically have 12 degrees plato and 4% pils usually have 10 degrees plato. This is often listed on the bottle or can and seems to be regarded as significant in eastern Europe but rarely mentione elsewhere. Does anyone know more about this whole issue and can it help pur appreciation of beers we drink to know the "plato". The Gambrinus is pretty nice by the way. Quite similar to Pilsner Urquell. Any thoughts?
