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.

JulienHuxley (4445) - 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.

RexTalionis (3164) - FINLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours pale golden in color with a creamy white head. Vegetable aroma, some herbs too. Same in taste. Bad batch or if it is meant to be like this, itís not just my cup of tea. Doesnít feel like a czech pils at all with those disturbing vegetable notes spoiling it.

The aroma and the taste of this beer are nothing special; moreover, the palate is quite poor.
