The first light colored lager, aka Pilsner, was brewed in the ancient city of Plzen in what is now the Czech Republic. Using Czech Saaz hops exclusively, without specialty malts to hide their flavor, results in a bitter, spicy beer, with spicy and slightly floral aromas.

5 of 5 Excellent hoppy beer June 4, 2018
Reviewer: wihogfan from Appleton, WI United States  
I always make 5 1/2 to 6 gallon batches because I know I'm going to lose a bit when transferring to a secondary and then into a keg. Alcohol content is kept in line with the original receipe by adding glucoamalyaze (which makes for a slightly less full bodied beer/lower final gravity than the original reciepe but also lowers the carbs a bit).Bottled 5 bottles without lagering and have 5 gallons currently lagering. Bottles have carbed and are quite hoppy but good hoppy. Figure the final lagered product will be slightly less hoppy, but initial non-lagered bottles have me craving the final brew. Will buy again.
