Bohemian-Style Pilsner

If you are a lover of great beer, you can agree that the beer fans owe a lot of gratitude to the brewers of Pilsen (Plzen) for this tasty creation. The Bohemian-Style Pilsner retains its links to the original lager beers of the Pilsner family. It has a blend of classic flavors, a lingering hop, a crisp finish, and a high-hop bitterness mixed with malt flavors.

Although this beer has gone through different forms of reinvention and adaptations around the world, a good Bohemian-Style Pilsner has a clear, pale gold to a darker orange-gold appearance. It rises gorgeously with a dense and creamy white foam that keeps you company throughout your drinking experience. The aroma it delivers is clean and comes with a complex and rich sense of malt. Although you may not perceive any fruity esters, the hops add a touch of spicy effect to its taste.

Origin of the Bohemian-Style Pilsner

This beer style goes as far back as 1842, in the town of Pilsen, capital of the Czech Bohemia. Josef Groll, a Bavarian brewer, brewed the original Bohemian-Style Pilsner that year. For the people of the Czech Republic, this style of beer is essentially an appellation respected by the German brewers. However, the classic samples of this style of beer were initially stored in wooden tanks and therefore contained less sharp hop bitterness despite some similarities to the German style.
