OLD PILSEN INSPIRED LAGER - Wood Edition (4.4% ABV) - 355ml can
Inspired by trips and tastings in the dark cellars under Pilsen, Sklepník Ve Dřevě Old Pilsen Inspired Pale Lager - Wood Edition (Chardonnay) is our humble homage to the original pilsner. A portion of Sklepník both fermented and spent three months conditioning in two French oak barrels - we should note without the traditional use of pitch. The beer was then moved into stainless where it was krausened (read: naturally carbonated) with fresh fermenting wort.
The result is our most ambitious lager to date.
After a pleasant perfume-like oaky hit, a signature Saaz spice and caramelized malt depth (thanks to a triple decoction mash) precede a gentle wave of bitterness and slight acidity in the finish that ties a lovely bow. Pillowy, unfiltered but refined, Sklepník Ve Dřevě - Wood Edition is our respectful nod to a timeless classic.
