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 (754) - Hostivice, - 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.
