There is only one true Czech beer in the world
The uniqueness of Czech beer was confirmed by an independent accredited laboratory, the Research Institute of Brewing and Malting. The analysis of Czech beer demonstrated a significant difference.
Definition of Czech beer
A pale beer that has a distinct aroma of pale malt and hops. This beer has a medium sharpness, just like the fullness of its taste, which is primarily given by the difference between the apparent and achievable degree of fermentation. The intensity of the bitterness of the beer is medium to high, with the level of harshness being mild to slightly harsh.
The beer is golden yellow in colour, with a medium to high intensity. The beer is sparkling and when being poured into a glass creates a compact white foam. Extra aromas and tastes are not permitted, the taste of malt and hops predominate, while a very weak intensity of pasteurization or ester tastes and odours is permissible. A higher value of polyphenols and a higher pH level are typical for Czech beer.
