Tuzlanski Pilsner

The common looking brown bottle of Tuzlanski pilsner from the Tuzlanska Pivara displays a colorful label and notches for day/month dating. My 0.5 liter sample was dated as the prior month. The 11.2 degree lager pours a dense gold color with a light but dense white head. A nice mouthfeel accompanies the medium body where the up-front flavor begins as a soft pale maltiness then evolves into an interestingly floral hoppiness. Not a sweet character but reminiscent of that found in a heather ale. The label states the recommended serving temperature. Not like traditional Czech or German pilsners, the hops used likely give this brew its unique but pleasing character.
