I rarely imbibe pilsners for some odd reason, for when I do happen to have one, I’m usually impressed. Coupled with the fact that I happened to get my hands on a Pilsner from the Czech Republic, it should come as no surprise that I was thoroughly impressed with the Lev Lion Pale Double Bock from the Mestansky Pivovar Havlickuv Brewery.
This light gold colored intensely bubbly beer poured with a nice white head that revealed an inviting hop nose with a subtle maltiness. The taste was true to a smooth and crisp Pilsner and had a slight pepperiness to it that finished with a well done maltiness.
This is a great Pilsner style beer from a brewery that clearly knows a thing or two about producing highly drinkable beers. If you can get your hands on a Lev Lion Pale Double Bock, you’ll surely enjoy it!
