The classic pale lager. Clear, deep golden color, foamy white head, medium-full body with caramelly malt and spicy hop character, firm bitterness giving way to a soft finish.
If you enjoyed Pilsner Urquell or the European Pilsner, you'll love this kit!
If we had to pick just one style that embodies everything a beer should be, Czech Pilsner might be it: this lager showcases both malt and hops but allows some expression of yeast character; mellow enough to drink a few half-liters but technical enough to demand care in brewing. Clear, deep golden color, foamy white head, medium-full body with caramelly malt and spicy hop character, firm bitterness giving way to a soft finish.

Even friends that don't like craft beer liked Czech pilsner
Everything needed was in the box. Brew day was a fun day. Outdoor temperature stayed perfectly low for the ferment.
So this was the first beer I made in years. I chose it because I like pilsner. It took a while and had some off tastes. I can't say that it was the beer or kit, but very likely was because of the brewer. If this is your first time brewing, go with an easy to make light or amber ale instead of a pilsner.
If you like a true pilsner and I am not talking about the American pilsners that use rice. You will absolutely love this beer. My number one home brew.
Since I last brewed this a few years ago, the ingredients and instructions have changed slightly. Let's see how it goes.
