Pilsner lager

Pilsner is a colorless lager beer originally brewed in the city of Pilsen. Pilsner was first brewed in 1842 by the Bavarian brewer Josef Groll. Groll set about trying to produce a good quality lager as the quality of Czech lager at the time was disappointing. From Bavaria, Groll brought a special yeast, which mixed with the soft water of Plzen produced a clear beer, golden in color and crisp in character. He used Saaz hops when brewing to prevent his beer from becoming spoiled. It was an immediate success

Water used for this style of beer tend to be harder, with a higher calcium and magnesium content than water used for lager. The color of pilsner is also lighter than that of lager beer.

Pilsner is a pale lager with a crisp, refreshing taste that is lightly hopped. The head of a pilsner is white and dense, and the body is almost always straw-colored. The aroma should contain hops with a hint of graininess. The Saaz hops in pilsners tend to make the beer a little “spicy”, but not in a spicy-hot or a pumpkin spice way.

It was aid that a true pilsner-style lager is, nicely described as “a harmonic link between the old and the new world".

A pilsner is the result of carefully controlled “lagering,” an aspect of the beer brewing process that can produce other types of lagers under different circumstances. Therefore, all pilsners are lagers, but pilsner is just one style of beer within the lager family, which includes dark and amber beers as well.
