Plzeň goes to show that a beer doesnít need a lot of alcohol to be special. With its fine, hoppy flavour, this 5% blond beer can certainly hold its own against the stronger beers. Brewed only from pale barley malt, this is a floral beer with delightful, hoppy aromas of hay and fresh grass. Deliciously dry, with a long-lasting aftertaste. We named the beer after the Czech town of Plzeň, from which Pilsner beers originate. Despite that, our Plzeň is not a Pilsner; it is a refreshing, bitter, top-fermented beer.

On tap @ Brouwerij ít IJ. Clear blond, average white head. Aroma citrus, hoppy, leaves, grass. Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, long lasting fine bitter finish. I wish all the lagers were like this, very good flavor and aftertaste.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Pale hazy, yellow/gold with a frothy, creamy, lacy, disappearing, white head. Smells of citrus, fruit and floral hops, toasted malt, yeast and some grass. Light-medium oily body. Soft sweet taste of wheat and fruit with a medium biscuit and a medium bitter grassy finish. It was nice enough to drink but needed more sweetness. A decent pils nonetheless.

JulienHuxley (5578) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy gold pour with foamy white head. Aroma is lemony, grassy, grainy and quite yeasty. Taste is bitter, nice hoppy flavour, however it is a bit husky and yeasty, could be a lot cleaner. Palate is well carbed and dry. Nice flavor profile but a bit too dirty.
