Classic Bohemian pilsner strain aroma and flavour characteristics can be expected.
Hop and malt character will be enhanced and supported by moderate to full body. In wort
with simple malt bills, delicate malt flavours will survive. Beer fermented with this strain
is generally rich and chewy without being heavy at all. Light and delicately balanced
beers call for this strain. Lagering periods as short as 4 weeks may produce acceptable
beer but allowing it to lager for 6-8 weeks, it will result in beer that is richer and smoother
with a more refined aroma and flavour.
HIGHER ALCOHOL BEERS:
This strain will perform reasonably well in higher alcohol beer production up to 8% ABV.
Beer of over 7% ABV will be slightly sweet, and the alcohol may be slightly hot.
