In České Budějovice, Budějovický Budvar (otherwise known as Budweiser Budvar or Czechvar in North America) and its original Ležák has been a constant source of inspiration at Godspeed. After many journeys to the brewery over the years, it’s fair to say their philosophy, their brewmaster Adam Brož along with their former brewmaster Josef Tolar, and - more than anything else - their delicious 12° beer, have pushed Godspeed to redouble their efforts when it comes to producing Czech-style lagers of quality and distinction.
Enter Bůh Originální Ležák (4.6% abv) Original Czech Pale Lager, a painstaking homage in liquid form. Using a double decoction mash process, 12 week lagering time, 100% whole cone Saaz hops, and speciality-sourced floor malted pilsner malt, Bůh (meaning God) is Godspeed's most elegant lager to date. On the nose, it’s all gentle Saaz spice aromatics that play into a delicate malt driven flavour and softened, natural carbonation. This particular pale lager is a study in restraint, providing an elegant canvas for these impeccable ingredients to shine.
