Definition: Pilsner

A light, golden lager with a smooth, clean taste. This beer, which originates from the town of Pilsen in today's Czech Republic, has a prevalent flavor of hops and malt, a spicy bitterness, and often a floral aroma. While pilsners are a refreshing and good match for most foods, the term has become interchangeable with any light, drinkable beer.

There are few things more refreshing on a hot summer day than a cold classical pilsener. Staropramen is a personal favorite. I'm usually more of an ale drinker, but sometimes the mood is right for a pils.
