CALGARY, AB – Wild Rose Brewery will be launching their latest seasonal release, Wild Rose Czech Pilz, this coming Friday, March 13th. This new beer replaces Natural Blonde Organic Pilsener in the brewery’s list of brands.
From the press release:
Wild Rose CZECH PILZ is an easy-drinking brew with a beautiful straw coloured hue. Crisp, clean and refreshing, this lager has been crafted to satisfy. With a distinct hop aroma and flavour, Wild Rose CZECH PILZ is sure to make you question what you may think a real Pilsener is all about.
Wild Rose’s brewer has cleverly added a generous blend of Saaz and Hallertau hops to Canadian Prairie malts to create a pure and natural European-style Pilsener. With strong character and wholesome beauty you may just want to pick up this bubbly blonde and take her home.
According to Wild Rose Brewer, David Neilly, Wild Rose CZECH PILZ is like “citrusy hops frolicking in a freshly harvested haystack.” His reasoning is that “this Pilsener is smooth and clean, yet distinct because of a generous dosing of Saaz hops.”
Crafted in very limited quantities, Wild Rose CZECH PILZ is available for sale in 500ml flip top bottles at select liquor retailers in Alberta and at Wild Rose Brewery & Taproom (403.720.2733). A special cask-conditioned brew of the CZECH PILZ will be served in the Wild Rose Taproom at 4pm on Friday, March 13th to celebrate the launch.
