American-style Light Lagers are something that at some point in our lives we’ve consumed. With names like Budweiser, Keystone, Rolling Rock, or Miller, we’ve all been inoculated through this rite of passage. Thankfully many of us have moved onto something with more flavorful and complex.
But if you’re feeling nostalgic and wish to combine your love of good beer, with something “light”, then try Ninkasi’s Bohemian Pils.
- ABV: 5.0%
- IBU: 38
- Starting Gravity: 1048
- Malt: Bohemian Pilsner, Premium 2-Row, Acidulated
- Hops: Hallertau, Czech Saaz
Description: This is a Ninkasi take on a Bohemian-style Pilsner, which is a medium-bodied golden lager with spicy, floral aromas from the style’s signature hop, Saaz. We brewed ours with Bohemian Pilsner, Premium 2-Row and Acidulated malt, as well as Hallertau hops to produce a beer that’s refreshing and well-rounded, crisp and complex.
Food Pairings: Indian or Thai Curries, Chinese, Japanese or Asian Cuisine, Blue Cheese, Cheddar, Lemon Shortbread, Berries
Brewed as a celebration of the Oregon Beer Festival’s 26th Anniversary, Bohemian Pils is one of only a handful of beers, so far (this year), to carry the Rare & Delicious Series designation.
“The Rare and Delicious Series allows our brewers to pursue creative mastery through making beers they have never made before,” explains founding brewer and co-owner, Jamie Floyd. “Each brewer combines creativity and research to produce a new beer that explores new ingredients, yeasts or processes in the quest to create something new and tasty!”
Ninkasi’s R&D Series not only allows the brewers to explore new recipes, but allows local consumers to try the new Ninkasi styles. “These beers may develop into future beers or beer enjoyed for what they are,” says Floyd.
Look for Bohemian Pils throughout Oregon and in limited supply throughout the rest of the Northwest.
