The word “Pilsner” comes from its creation in the city of Pilsen, Bohemia (now Plze? in the Czech Republic). A Pilsner is pale lager generally regarded as different from other pale lagers by a more prominent hop character, particularly from the use of Saaz noble hops. Pilsners generally have an ABV of 4-5%. While pilsner is best defined in terms of its characteristics and heritage, the term is also used by some brewers (particularly in North America) to indicate their “premium” beer, whether or not it has a particular hop character.
