Czech Pilsener
(Bohemian Brewery)

One of two lagers that Bohemian is canning (the other being their Viennese Lager). This Czech Pilsner is brewed in the traditional style and represents the homeland of Bohemian Brewery's owner, Joseph Petras. Very few craft breweries focus solely on lagers and I am pretty sure that Bohemian is the only of those that is canning their beers. Na zdraví!

 

From the Bohemian Brewery site:

 

"Our Czech Pilsener (a.k.a. Bohemian Pilsner) is the purest of beers - in our eyes. Clear and golden in color, light and crisp in taste. Our lager is well aged from real Pilzen Malt and actual imported Czech Yeast from Branik - Prague, Czech Republic. Only the finest Saaz hops are used to emulated this outside-of Pilzen, Pilsener. Crafted after one of our favorite Pilsners, Pilsner Urquell - you won’t be disappointed in this true Czech beer. The closest thing to Bohemian Pilsner you can get without actually being in the Czech Republic."


Here we go...

 

Pour - very clean, light golden in color with a nice sharp looking head. Just looking at this cold beer in a glass makes me want to stop thinking about it and just start drinking. Thankfully I've got more!

 

Aroma - grainy and slightly citric. This smells a bit sulfuric and spot on for the style.

 

Taste - first gulp and my thirst is almost quenched. This is a sharp, crisp tasting pilsner that tastes almost perfect on this 90 degree evening. Some nice noble hop flavors come out and match well with the slight grainy sweetness. A nice finish leaves the tongue a little dry, the lips a little wet and your brain moving your head back to the glass. 

 

Overall - if you want crisp and refreshing this is your beer. When you think pilsner I hope your thinking of a beer like this because it truly showcases what this not-so-easy to brew style should be. These guys are brewing up some lager-ific magic out in Utah! 

 

Would I buy more of it? - absolutely. This is one of the best pilsners I've had to date and a perfect beer to stock a cooler with on a warm summer day.

 

Note - thanks goes out to Bohemian Brewery for hooking me up with samples of both of their canned offerings. I really appreciate your generosity and enjoyed both beers immensely.
