Denizens Born Bohemian Pils

Val and I went down to DC for a weekend and stopped at a beer store in Maryland on the way back up. This was one of the beers that I picked up. The brewery is in Maryland and I know nothing about them, so let’s get to it.

ABV: 4.9%

Style: Czech Pilsener

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “A Bohemian is a resident of Bohemia, a region of the Czech Republic or the former Kingdom of Bohemia, a region of the former Crown of Bohemia (lands of the Bohemian Crown). In English, the word ‘Bohemian’ was used to denote the Czech people as well as the Czech language before the word ‘Czech’ became prevalent in the early 20th century. In a separate meaning, ‘Bohemian’ may also denote ‘a socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts’ according to Oxford Dictionaries Online.”

Random: It’s really hard to make a good pils and they seem to be getting more popular.

The beer poured with a two finger, white head that dissipated quickly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was a greenish-yellow with a decent amount of carbonation. The nose was very floral with rose petals and also had some grass. The taste had grass, river stones and rose petals as well. The flavors were very clean. It had a light body with a lot of carbonation. The finish was long with river stones and grass. A pounder can of this was $2.50, which broke down to $.16 per ounce. I thought that the beer was a good price, but it was a little too floral for the style.
