CALGARY, AB – Wild Rose Brewery is set to release this year’s batch of their spring seasonal, Wild Rose Czech Pilz, this coming Friday, March 12th. This will be the second year that Czech Pilz is part of the brewery’s seasonal program after it’s debut last year.
From the press release:
Once again, this lager has been crafted to satisfy. With a distinct hop aroma and flavour, Wild Rose Czech Pilz entices with its easy drinkability. Canadian Superior Pilsener malt cleverly mingles with a generous blend of Saaz and Vanguard hops to create a pure and natural European-style Pilsener. The alcohol is 5.5% alc./vol.
When asked about how this brew of Czech Pilz differs from last year’s interpretation, Wild Rose Brewer, David Neilly says, “This year we used Vanguard as the bittering hop compared to Hallertau hops.” Despite the success and popularity of last year’s brew, Neilly wanted to make the 2010 batch even better, “by using a new Bohemian yeast and by changing the hop profile our Czech Pilz will be drier and more crisp than ever before.”
The 2010 edition of Wild Rose Czech Pilz will be officially launched on Friday at the Wild Rose Brewery & Taproom. Two different cask versions of the beer will be available, both featuring the addition of a different type of hops, and it will also be available in the distinctive 500 ml swing-top bottles used by Wild Rose for all of their seasonal beers.
