You may have noticed that I don’t often review pilsners on this site. What is a pilsner, you ask? It is a Czech beer style that is the basis for most of our American domestic beer (Budweiser, for example, is a pilsner). Pilsners are characterized by their clear yellow color (something that Greg Koch would probably label “fizzy yellow beer”) and thin, dry taste. They’re the beer equivalent of a mild white wine.
