Chuckanut Brewery Chuckanut Bohemian Style Pilsner
What the brewers say
Traditional Bohemian-style pilsner with Noble hop aroma, bright golden color, and white pillowy head.
What our panel thought
Brilliant. Slight lemongrass aroma at first, then floral tones crescendo as the beer warms. Clear, crisp, with well-defined Noble-hop bitterness and a layered malt middle: toast, light candy, spice. You can nitpick the boundaries of the various regional pilsner styles, but in the end this is an extremely well-made, balanced beer. Pleasant and interesting from start to finish.
What our editors thought
Defined floral nose with a tight edge and ever-so-soft malt notes; just a hint of sulfur for light mineral crispness. In the sip, gentle floral notes with a present but soft bitterness, over a brisk body with just a touch of bready sweetness. The clarity of expression is unparalleled—stunningly executed.
