Originating in 1848 in the Bohemian city of Pilsen as the first pale lager, “Pilsener” soon became the most popular beer style in the world. Sadly, most Pilsners of the world are watered-down interpretations of what is traditionally an intensely aromatic and flavorful style. For the most part, only Czech and German Pilsners remain true to what a real Pilsner is all about. In general, both Czech and German Pilsners are hoppy, but German Pilsners tend to be drier and not as malty as their Czech counterparts. Pook’s® Pilsner is brewed in the drier German-style—made with the best German malts, noble hops and lager yeast for a crisp and smooth flavor profile.
