Dock Street Brewery Bohemian Pilsner

What the brewers say

“A grist consisting solely of German pilsner malt is carefully decocted to produce a bright golden color and soft, nutty malt flavor. The wort is hopped frequently and exclusively with Czech Saaz hops, is fermented cool and slowly, and then lagered extensively.”

What our panel thought

“Inviting floral and spicy Noble hop aroma. Light appropriate whiff of sulfur. Deep golden, brilliant. Clean pilsner malt brings a moderate bit of bread crust and cracker to the aroma with a filigree of spicy hops at the edges. The balance shifts to hops in the flavor, pushing the soft bready, cracker malt into a more supporting role. Soft honey character. The bitterness is smooth and clean, lingering into the finish and fading slowly. Moderate bitterness, soft floral, spicy flavor. Finish is a touch sweet, but not exactly melanoidin in quality—more honey-like. Bitterness hangs well, inviting more drinking. A nice ride with some reasonable variation (and smooth transitions) along the way.”

What our editors thought

“A classic and beautiful light Noble herbal note in the nose is friendly yet quiet. The malty body embraces a round sweetness with herbal overtones—borders on bigness but that herbal note keeps it honest.”
