441. Harpoon Bohemian Pilsner (100 Barrel Series #15)

I made my weekly stop by Downtown Wine & Spirits tonight. They had Harpoon's latest 100 Barrel offering, a Bohemian Pilsner, which sounded like it would hit the spot. Other purchases include Smuttynose Big A IPA, Southampton Grand Cru, and Allagash 11th Anniversary Ale. I served this chilled in my UFO Weizen glass (I desperately need a good Pilsner glass).
