CZECH PILSNER

Pilsner Urquell

The pilsner style has long been associated with thirst quenchers enjoyed best during the hot summer months. Pilsner Urquell means "the pilsner from the original source," and rightly so, as it originates from Pilsen, the birthplace of the most favored beer style in the world. Brewed since 1842, this iconic lager with noble Saaz hops grown in the region, soft clear water and Bohemian and Moravian barley is a well-balanced, slightly sweet, malty and hoppy, straw-hued brew that epitomizes the pilsner style. And, unlike the macro-produced American imitators of the pilsner style, it's quite easy to detect hop flavor in this one.

Price: $1.35 (12 oz.)
