5 O'Clock Pils
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Saint Arnold Brewing Company’s 5 O’Clock Pils packs 6 GABF Medals and over 20 years worth of Lager experience while besting the Czechs at their own game -- it’s BeerAdvocate’s #7 Czech Pilsner of all time.
With just two ingredients, Saaz Hops and Pils Malts, Saint Arnold pushes the flavor envelope with their brewing mastery. They harness decoction mashing, where part of the malts are removed, boiled to deepen flavors, then added back to the mash. The result is a fuller bodied, yet dry finishing beer kissed with sweet hints of caramelization. Infusing Saaz Hops layers in that classic herbal, citrus aroma while delivering an herbal, bitter bite to the finish.
Scents of lemon marmalade rise from the glass alongside floral orange blossoms and nectarcot skins. Wild honey slides across flavors of grain bread, flowing into grapefruit rinds and ground pepper resin. The mouthfeel is deep with flavor, but it stays light enough that you just can’t put it down between each grassy, dry finish.
When fresh, spicy Saaz Hops combine with honey-crisp Pilsner Malts, the magically refreshing and full flavored Czech Pils is born. We’ve brought you one of the highest rated in the world at its freshest, straight from one of Texas’ craft beer masters.
