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.

Bottle. Light yellow, small white head. Citrusy aroma. Fresh straw like taste, refreshing. Light on the tongue. Almost a white wine vinegar taste in here as well. Started on quite nice, but I found it a little bland and watery as it finished (this was a pretty old bottle too mind you). Not bad though, and a rare treat, thanks.

Bottled @ KØ 2005: Yellow coloured. Clear. Off white head. Sweet, malty and fruity aroma. Yeast, spice(Corriander), light soap, banana and grape in the flavour. Is medium bitter in the end, and has a medium body, giving a nice long duration on the palate.

This is a welcome change to the usual procession of strong ales in this stable of beers. Good presentation in the glass although a little hazy for the style. There is a strong presence of herbaceous hop aroma somewhat like a Jever Pils. The flavour is dry and clean with a slight back palate of sourness that does not detract from the overall enjoyment of this beer.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
Hazy golden colour with a white head. Malty aroma with a nice sweetness and a balanced hoppyness. Flavor starts malty then becomes bitter and dry.

this place is the greatest place in amsterdam....off the beaten path but gives you ’real feel’ for lacal life....and beer brewed in a windmill, how could you go wrong. all their beers have the same yeasty belgium quality to them...this didnt remind me of a pilsener at all had a golden nice thick thatch top head. coriander and citrus notes. good and refreshing. some off characteristics as well.

DanielBrown (4563) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2005
On tap at the brewery in Amsterdam. Cardboard/glue aroma. Slightly hazey appearance, with a persistent thin head and thick lacing. Flavoursome Pilsener, with a real herby, medicinal quality - faintly reminiscent of chloraseptic throatspray. Solid in the mouth. Despite the above description, I enjoyed this - quite engaging and still refreshing.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2005
Unpilsenerlike large head, that stays for a while. Starts very common but ends up into a sour-bitter finish. Excellent pilsener, pretty fullbodied.

3.4
RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2004
Bottled at Microbar, Battersea. I agree with duff, definitely Belgian style yeastiness/spiciness detected. Nice hop bitterness. Slight sour notes.
