Born Bohemian Pils by Denizens Brewing Co. was poured from the can into a 12-ounce pilsner glass and subsequently reviewed under the style definition as established by the Beer Judge Certification Program Style 3B Czech Premium Pale Lager.

The aroma profile reflected a clean spicy hop aroma quality that takes control, only allowing the soft malt aromatics to take a secondary position.

This handsome deep yellow lager was brilliantly clear and supported a bone white head that held up throughout this review.

Grassy, spicy hop flavors reminiscent of Saaz were firmly evidenced and lightly balanced with a toasted pilsner malt character. The finish was very dry and a bit overstated while the mouthfeel reflected a medium-full beer with traditional alcoholic levels per style.

Overall, an easy-drinking example of a Bohemian Pilsner recommended for all and especially those who relish this style.
