August Beer: Czech Pilz

Bottled this weekend was the previously-mentioned Pilz. The West Coast Pale Ale was a resounding success; one of the cleaner, most balanced (sweet, light, hoppy) beers I've made in a while.

To be fair, I try to brew stuff that's not available in stores, like Pumpkin porter (a repeat favorite, coming in late October), and Coffee Bock (a new recipe for my annual Octoberfest bock).

In the summer, though - basic, clean and crisp beers are the best. Next summer I'll repeat last summer's Lemon Weiss beer (this summer I explored a different set of recipes).
