Czech-style Pale Lager

A Collaboration with our friends at Four Winds Brewing.

We first met Four Winds at Chester Carey’s Serious Beer course at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in 2012. Neither of us were open yet but our friendship grew from those early days of beer education. Our first ever collab was with Four Winds. An obscure smoked sour beer called a Gratzer.

This is not that.

Zlatíčko is a 10° Czech-style Pale Lager. What’s the 10° mean? Well, the Czechs do things a little differently and instead of putting the alcohol percentage on a beer label, they put down different degrees. The degrees denote the weight of the extract (sucrose) in the solution (beer) on the day it was brewed. So a 10° is around 4%.

Zlatíčko was brewed with Bohemian Pilsner malt and a touch of Caramunich 2 and Melandoidin for added colour, body and mouthfeel, while adding colour and flavours of honey and biscuit.

We did a late hop addition with Kazbek, along with a light dry hop. Kazbek is an amped up version of Czech Saaz with citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit. Saaz was also added for floral and earthy spice to balance out the citrus.

This beer is bright, light yet full bodied, and incredibly crushable. It’s definitely a brewers choice beer, which is why we brewed it with Four Winds!
