The first blond lager was invented in 1842 in Pizen in Bohemia. The city hired Bavarian master brewer Josef Groll to develop a new, clear, golden beer at a time when the beers were mostly dark or cloudy. Three years later, Groll returned to Munich where he brought his know-how to Germany. From then on, this style of beer conquered the world.
The perfect match according to Martin Thibault, Les Coureurs des Boires
Czechs will proudly tell you this blond lager is just cuddly enough to be the perfect partner to a generous goulash. And they’d be right. After all, its Saaz hops play the role of herbs and its nourishing barley reminds of fluffy bread dumplings one would want to dip in the gravy. That being said, this is also an easygoing beer that will go quite well with those afternoon snacks of veggie pâté. While you are shopping online for hotels on your next trip to the Czech Republic, of course!
5% alc./vol IBU 35. Complex, malty and slightly caramelized taste. Strong but smooth bitterness with a distinct hop flavor.
