Beer of the Week: Breckenridge Regal Pilsner

Breckenridge Regal PilsnerBreckenridge Regal Pilsner (7% alcohol): This imperial style pilsner is available in 4-packs from Breckenridge Brewery based in Denver, Colorado. The packaging immediately caught my attention; the bottles are covered in a bohemian lion print, so I had a feeling this beer was going to be tasty! Regal Pilsner pours a clear honey gold with a small, frothy white head that lingers for a bit. Not quite as aromatic as expected; I can best describe it as mild, clean, malt sweetness. This made me anticipate a flavorless beer, but I was wrong. Regal Pilsner is quite complex. It starts off with mild malt flavor and finishes with crisp, hoppy bitterness that remains on the palate for a bit. I was surprised to see that this beer had 7% ABV because the hops masked it really well. Overall, Regal Pilsner is as hoppy as a double pilsner should be, yet crisp and clean like a traditional pilsner.  Another valiant effort (and execution) from Breckenridge.

If you’re interested in what else Breckenridge Brewery has to offer, take a look at what I thought of 72 Chocolate Stout.
