Pilsner (or "Pils") originally came from the Bohemian city of Pilsen and was aptly created by a Bavarian brewer. Meanwhile all The Czech and Germany has grown familiar with the delicately bitter flavoucaur. Pilsner has always been a firm favourite in Czech Republic. Our hoppy Premium Hoavener is brewed strictly in accordance with the traditional Pilsner brewing method and has an original wort of 7.5%. Only top-quality Zatec hops are used in its manufacture. Its bold colour and firm head make it easily distinguishable from other beers.

30cl draft at the brewpub. Golden with a white head. Lightly fruity aroma with malt and some caramel. Sweet, but well balanced with hints of hops and some bitterness. Fresh and delicious and clearly one of the best Vietnamese beers I have tried. (2012-05-12)

On tap at the Saigon brewpub. Deep golden with a small head. Malty aroma.. On the sweet side, not much hop bitterness. Quenched the thirst in hot Saigon.

on tap at the brewery restaurant with betty and filthmuppet. pretty pale yellow with a quickly dying head; aroma of old barn; somewhat thin and watery; hints of hop character but much too subdued; didnít balance the fried cheese i ordered as well as a more vibrant pils would have

@ HCMC This is a good pilsner, but I was a little disappointed by the hops character. Body was full and the beer was cloudy. The head was full and the taste was well balanced with a bitter finish.

Oakes (14830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2009 Hanoi location. Deep gold. Soft carbonation. Fluffy head. Big rich saazy nose with lots of deep, tangy malts. Hoppy and moderately bitter. Medium bready, slightly doughy malts and a long hoppy finish. A sample at the Mui Ne location wasnít nearly as hoppy, had butter issues and would have scored much lower.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 Draft @ brewpub. Gorgeous coppery golden-orange with thick head, decent retention. Aroma is bursting with hops. Has a pleasantly pungent, spicy and deliciously inviting aroma. Quaffable palate. Really floral, herbal hops here but is balanced and has good body. Excellent rendition, as hoppy as an IPA. Rating based only on Hanoi. At the Phan Thiet/Mui Ne location, was blander, flawed, and not as hoppy.

Draught at Hoa Vien Brauhaus, Saigon. Pours golden with creamy white head. Pleasant floral aroma and the flavour is malt, fruit and some spices. Clean and crisp with light bitterness in the finish. A solid brewed pils.

Draught at HoaViÍn Bršhaus, Hanoi location. Lightly hazy golden, small creamy head. Rather neutral aroma. Medium dry with light bodu and rounded mouthfeel. Despite itís subdued hop aroma it blasts away into a resiny, really bitter finish. Well made!
