In 2014, at the tender age of 15 months, NISSOS Pilsner was awarded the silver medal in the Bohemian-style Pilsner category at European Beer Star, one of the two most respected international beer competitions. The achievement was even more impressive considering the fierce competition that year, with 1,613 beers from 42 countries setting a new participation record. But also because European Beer Star attracts a very high standard of entries, and more to the point, exclusively from what the organizers themselves describe as “special, authentic beers”.
Adding to the prestige of the awards is the fact that the beers are judged by an independent jury of 105 master brewers, beer sommeliers and connoisseurs from all over the world, who form their unbiased opinion in a blind tasting. The criteria they consider include appearance, aroma, taste and overall perception… just as any beer drinker does.
