5.2% ABV • IBU 40

Saint Arnold Brewing Company believes that the greatest beers are the ones that achieve their goal with the simplest recipes. 5 O'Clock Pils is all about its two ingredients: pils malt and Saaz hops. This is the entire basis of the original Bohemian Pils style. The pils malt is light yet with a pleasant bready character, emphasized by the decoction mash wherein a portion of the mash is removed, boiled and added back. Saaz hops, the only hop that has never been hybridized dating back to when it was first cultivated from a wild plant around 1,000 years ago, gives a pleasant earthy spiciness. The final, unfiltered beer has a light maltiness, a big refreshing bitter and wonderful, delicate hop flavor and aroma. This is the beer Saint Arnold Brewing Company enjoys every year in the Czech Republic when doing their Saaz hop selection. Only, they've added even more hops. It is a beer that can be enjoyed everyday of the year. You will never tire of it.
