Czech style Pilsner beer

Beer story

Here’s a classic Pilsner born from the original Czech style, as reliable as Prague’s landmark time piece. The mild bitterness and fragrant hop nose of Czech’s Saaz hops are balanced with Pale malt. A thirst quenching experience… anytime.

We import the Noble hops direct from Czech for their distinct but subtle bite. Then, it comes down to having a little patience. This lager needs some serious tank time to even out the flavours. It’s one of the first original recipes that I brewed for Big Rock, and it’s still one of my favourites.
