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.

Jamedra (467) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 9, 2013
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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 Looks very nice, but not so happy with the first and secondary taste. Secondary taste lasts very long.

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 13, 2012
bottle - from the fridge at klub malych pivovaru, nice to see pilsner coming from outside the country to plzen. light golden with a thin but lasting head; hints of apple zest and grass in the aroma; a touch thin texture-wise but with decent bitterness and plenty of saaz showing

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2012
Alles klopt aan dit pils, fiere kraag, krachtig aroma van bloemen en fel bitterzoet met dito afdronk, fris prikkelend. Alleen de fles is te klein.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Pale yellow beer with a white head. There’s a nice pale malt base to the aroma along with some cracker notes. A bit of floral hops, yeast, and some fruity esters. Just a bit of a grassy hop profile. The flavor is a bit sweeter with some biscuit and cracker malt notes. Floral hops, light grass, and a hint of bitterness. Not as much in the way of fruit or esters.
