Thought to be the H strain of the famous Plzen brewer, Pilsner I lager has a dry and neutral taste profile and is gently malty with a lightly perceptible floral aroma and is the first of the famous Czech strains inspiring America’s most famous light, brilliantly clear, golden lagers. Commonly produces sulfur during fermentation that clears during lagering. Watch out for diacetyl.
