National Bohemian Beer

I’ve seen this beer every time I go down to Baltimore, but never tried it. I didn’t have high hopes for the beer, but let’s see if I was wrong.

ABV: 4.28%

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Today, Natty Boh has returned to the traditional recipe that made it the beer of choice in Baltimore and across the mid-Atlantic. Likewise, Mr. Boh continues to be a symbol of the community he so proudly represents and can be seen keeping watch over the city on top of the Natty Boh Tower. But he represents far more than a simple mascot, he is also the uncrowned king of Baltimore and plays a significant role in what makes Baltimore different from any other city in the world!”

Random: This was first brewed in 1885.

The beer poured with a quarter finger of pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass, but a small crown remained. The body was completely clear and straw yellow in color. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with some corn and dry grass. The nose was relatively mild. The taste had some biscuit and grass with grain, but nothing stood out. For a macro beer, it was inoffensive and easy to drink. The body was thin with huge amounts of carbonation. The finish was instant with dry grass. A bottle of this was $.83, which broke down to $.07 per ounce. This wasn’t a great beer, but better than the normal macros.

Untappd Rating: 2.5/5.0
