"Bohemian style" beer has been used through the years by breweries to describe their American light lager. It is a stretch but everyday light American lager, in spite of its blandness, is a descendent of Bohemian (Czech) pilsner.

I'm guessing troll. It would be like someone goes to a camera board and wonders how they can take 3d shots with his Instamatic from his Grandma's house.

No - not trolling. I saw a beer that described itself as a "bohemian Style" beer and was curious as to what it was referring to.

I believe it was a pilsner

The recipe of today's Stroh's has absolutely NO similarity to the product produced in Stroh's heyday (late 70's early 80's). My goal in homebrewing life it to try to replicate that recipe! (though I'm not sure how I'll know when I get there since I haven't had an original Stroh's since about 1985!) Anybody else ever played with this recipe?

Also,in that Shawshank Redemption clip,you can clearly see the old Stroh's label! Replicating the flavor of that beer & other's from those days is what got me into brewing beer. Besides how much easier it is nowadays. I'd like to find some info on the original recipes. I have one idea for an ale that brewed a certain way with very particular hops would give something of those flavors. Thought I'd do that,then switch the same rcipe to a lager yeast when I can. Didn't know where to start,sooo...

I would agree..I was in Prague a couple weeks ago and Pilsner Urquell was everywhere. Their brewery was pretty cool too. Another would be Czechvar, which was really good.

Yep. for the most part. I'm trying to replicate the Stroh's of old....my high school days....Done some research and have some ideas, but haven't yet made the jump into all grain. Want to put a couple more batches under my belt before I try that...

Thanks for this post! Haven't been on much lately, but downloaded the entire document and some great information in there! I've added it to my reference collection and have referred back to it several times already. Noobs like me don't know where to look for this kinda info, so thanks to you all-timers for the boost!
