New Belgium Pilsener

What the brewers say

“New Belgium Brewing’s Bohemian Style Pilsener is brewed in the traditional Czech style for a deeply refreshing flavor with a hint of malty sweetness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pleasant delicate bready sweetness. Hops are quite faint but have subtle notes of spice and soap. A touch of sulfur.”

Flavor: “The flavor carries with a biscuit malt sweetness throughout the taste. The hops provide some nice subtlety, but the taste carries the sweetness through the finish. Nice medium body and carbonation. Smooth finish.”

Overall: “A well-designed and well-crafted, but delicate, version of the style. There’s enough sweet malt to stand up to the mildly bitter noble hops flavors. Clean and easy-drinking beer.”
