Narragansett Private Stock Imperial Bohemian Pilsner

Tonight was golf league night, but unfortunately it was pouring rain with thunder and lightening. The round was called off after the second hole. I had a whacky round going already: +4 on the first hole, and birdied the second hole. Although I was VERY excited to play this week, the silver lining was that I got to drink a bunch of beer in the clubhouse AND we got a rain-check for the round.

Back at the homestead, I’m drinking a bottle of Narragansett Private Stock Imperial Bohemian Pilsner. Unless you’re a new reader (or you pay absolutely no attention to the words I write), you know I’m a HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE fan of ‘Gansett’s products. That said, I really was not a huge fan of the Imperial IPA which was first in this limited series.

The 8.6% imperial pilsner isn’t knocking my socks off either. Granted, it’s not a bad beer by any means. It’s heavily hopped, but also has a strong malty backbone. You initially get a blast of floral/citrus hops, followed by a brown-sugar maltiness. The beer finishes with a harsh bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy.

I maintain that ‘Gansett’s best stuff is their lager, their spring bock, and their summer ale.
