Josephsbrau Plznr (pilsner) is a celebration of noble hops from central Europe. This style of beer was developed by German brewmaster Joseph Groll in 1849 in the town of Plzen (Pilsen), Bohemia (modern day Czech Republic) and was the first beer to be brewed golden and clear. This beers pin-point fine bitterness is perfectly accentuated by its crisp body.

Pours a crystal clear golden with a thick foamy white head. Decent lacing. Smells of lemon and grass. Tastes of the same plus bread and malt with floral notes on the finish. A very fine, well balanced Pilsener.

Aurelius (4918) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Functional label on a standard longneck. Clear, brilliant gold brew with a thin, webby white head. Not much remarkable about the aroma - just lagery and a little sunflower seed note. Frothy mouthfeel, light mineral notes, very light bittering. Flabby body overall after the initial swig. Some final bitterness at the end. This is just a whole lot of nothing - no reason to buy this instead of Bud. TJs, Tallahassee.

PorterPounder (6901) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joes - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, soft, snow white head, thin lacing. Aroma has some buttery accents, a touch of saffrron like spiciness. Classic pilsener flavor, a touch of bitter hoppiness, some bready maltiness, a touch of honey sweetness. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty decent and a great price at TJs ($1.17).

loubar (156) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 9, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 12 oz. bottle from TJs. Poured crystal-clear golden orange with a dense, well-retained head. Nutty notes over light bready malts on the nose. The flavor is a bit of lemon and grass over soft bread and lesser caramel malts. Just enough bitterness to offset the sweetness. Pretty clean, well-balanced and tasty.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 5, 2014
12oz bottle - Ive passed by this beer a few times at Trader Joes, however this time I went ahead and plunked down the money and got a sixer and I was quite happy I did. A clean, flavorful, classic example of a fresh pilsener. A nice malty, bitter walnut-like aroma mixed with some wet pine. Flavor is clean, dry, with a nice hay-like hop flavor with some cracker malt to help the balance. Solid beer and I can see several sixers of this being bought because the price is so right.

Patrickctenchi (5671) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle: Slightly cloudy yellow, soapy white head. Grain, corn malt, vegetal aroma. Taste is slightly sour grains....lackluster grassy bitter. Didnt seem much like a pilsner at all. Pretty unappealing

12 ounce bottle from Trader Joes. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is big sweet toast and corn. The flavor is more super sweet base malts, not very clean, a round rice or corn element to the flavor that you get in lots of cheap beer. Drinkable. Ive proven that much.
