COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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!
