Plzeň goes to show that a beer doesnt 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.

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!

worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Pale hazy, yellow/gold with a frothy, creamy, lacy, disappearing, white head. Smells of citrus, fruit and floral hops, toasted malt, yeast and some grass. Light-medium oily body. Soft sweet taste of wheat and fruit with a medium biscuit and a medium bitter grassy finish. It was nice enough to drink but needed more sweetness. A decent pils nonetheless.
