Plzeň goes to show that a beer doesn’t 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.

Láhev 330 ml. Po nalití příjemné klasické aroma chmele, Pěna je vysoká jemná a krasně světle sněhová, držící a velmi příjemná na rtech. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuťově je pivo vyvážené hořké tak akorát lehce štiplavé a celkově příjemně pitelné. Jedná se o vskutku dobrou cizokrajnou Plzeň.

Dorata, torbida e dalla testa bianca ampia e schiumosa, questa pils nata in Olanda centra molto bene l’obiettivo. Aroma di lievito, erbe, agrumi. Al palato inizia dolce di malto, prosegue con un sapore erbaceo, di agrumi e chiude abbastanza amara e secca con il luppolo. Frizzante piů del solito. Una buona interpretazione dello stile ceco, birra beverina.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a somewhat cloudy light gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, and malt. Taste is similar. Very light and refreshing.

MarcoDL (2548) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
Surprisingly tasty beer, probably because it’s a top fermented pilsner. (although that’s technically impossible) Subtle bitter and fruity taste.

Pours an yellow, golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, hops and dusty. Tastes hops, malts and very bitter. Average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

Grassy aroma of citrus fruits, grains, floral hops. Flavour is light sweetness, hoppy, with some nice bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite tasty and refreshing, would drink again were I to return to the brewery.

On tap @ ’t IJ. Clear golden with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is grassy with floral notes, hay and nice hoppy presence. Taste is floral and grassy with fresh cereals and light lingering bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Clean and crisp. I like the long aftertaste in that one. Super grassy too. Quaffable. Very good!
