Bo Pils by East Brother Beer Co. is a Bohemian Pilsner and is being evaluated as a Czech Premium Pale Lager (2015 BJCP Category 3B) offering according to BJCP guidelines. For this style expect a golden, cleanly fermented lager based on high-quality malt; it should provide rich malt character and be highly drinkable and refreshing.

A lovely, clean and rich medium grainy and lightly doughy Pils malt emanate from the glass, making their way through a tall, foamy, egg white head stand. The beer is brilliantly clear straw gold and the head recedes to a thin film on top and bubbly cordon. The complex malt dominates the flavor yet leaves room for light spicy and herbal/earthy hops and soft, rounded bitterness. The malt sweetness carries into the dry finish and carries a bit of the bitterness along. This is a light-bodied, though it feels bigger based on the malt sweetness and richness.

There is a soft fruitiness in the aroma and flavor though the malt often overcomes the fleeting aroma and flavor. I notice a light mineral character, particularly as the beer leaves the tongue. This is a very easy-drinking beer, quite refreshing and quaffable.
