Czech Pils, also known as Bohemian Pilsener, began its history and world success in 1842 in Plzeň (Pilsen) - hence its name. In 1839, city councilors decided to build a new city brewery, where it was ordered that it would brew Bavarian-style light beers. Therefore, a new brewer was brought from Bavaria - Josef Groll. It was he who soon revealed to the world a bright, exceptionally clear, clearly hopped and refreshing beer that immediately won the hearts of brewers. The progenitor of all the world's bright lagers, it is characterized by a rich malt flavor with a distinct, noble hop bitterness and a spicy floral aroma derived from the Saaz (Żatec) hops used.
The beer owes its rich flavor to soft, Pilsen water with a low content of mineral salts, which translated into a noble, round and pleasant bitterness, and decoction brewing, which brings out the full flavor of the malt. Pilsner Urquell is synonymous with the Czech pils, although we can find good representatives of this species in many other breweries.
Also known as Bohemian Pilsener, it began its history and success in 1842 in Plzeň. It is characterized by a rich malt flavor, extracted from the grain thanks to decoction mash, and a distinct hop bitterness and aroma, derived from the Czech hops used. The author of the recipe is Frantisek Sykora.
