TENNER - Czech Pils - 4.0% ABV (10°P)

Yes, there really is a session strength Pils, and the Czech Republic has been doing it for a very long time.

It is the most consumed style of beer in the country that consumes the most beer per captia. Floor malted Czech pils, Saaz hop and soft water are the hallmarks of this beer, as well as the old world brewing methods of double decoction, open fermentation, natural carbonation, and conditioning in horizontal lagering tanks.
