In this episode Bob and I stick with lagers, but instead of Germany or the U.S. this time we head to the Czech Republic, and tackle the Czech Pale Lager.  The Czech Pale Lager is a hoppy, session-strength pale lager that is among the most popular styles of beer among drinkers in the Czech Republic. The guidelines give us something of a mish-mash of guidance, though. The beer should be "rich" and "refreshing," which can be a tough needle to thread, though not impossible. Style examples: 

  • Bernard světlé pivo 10
  • Notch Session Pils
  • Radegast Rázna 10

 ABV: 3-4.1% IBUs: 20-35 Color: 3-6 Serving Temp: 40-45F Serving Pressure: 10-14 PSI Our sample beer for the week: Beer representation for the week: Žatecký Světlý Ležák which translated to Zatecky Light Lager 5.0% ABV and 19 IBUs 

Beer Description: Over 650 years of cultivation tradition, the experience of local hop growers and a unique microclimate give Žatec aromatic hops an unusual character. Experience its full aroma in Žatec Světlý Ležák brewed under the supervision of Tomas Lejsek from the Žatec Brewery.
