Bernard
Bohemian Lager

Category: Pilsner

Date Tasted:
Country: Czech Republic
Alcohol: 4.9%
Brilliant old gold color. Attractive aromas and flavors of hominy, mesclun, herb muffin, and hint of floral fruity beeswax with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a distinctive, long finish with notes of strawberry scone, peppered greens, minerals, and almond skin finish. A delightfully nuanced and very tasty Czech style lager that will go well with anything.

Pilsner

Beer Glass Pilsner Gold.jpg
Serve in a Pilsner Glass
Pilsners are pale to golden straw in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-6%. The hallmark of a fresh pilsner is a dense, white head. The alcohol levels must be such as to give a rounded mouthfeel. These beers are medium-bodied and are characterized by high carbonation and tangy Czech and German varieties of hops that impart floral aromas and a crisp, bitter finish. This style originated in Bohemia in the Czech Republic. German pilsner styles are similar, though often slightly lighter in body and color. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Pilsner Urquell, Paulaner Premium Pils, Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Pilsner and Victory Prima Pils.
