COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 beer’s pin-point fine bitterness is perfectly accentuated by its crisp body.

I'm not a fan of the style but this is a drinkable beer. Definitely a lawnmower beer. Clear yellow pour. Grass and hay. Well carbonated.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Clear pale gold, high foamy head, leaves behind some chunky lacing. Aroma of lemon, noble hops, grass. Sweet cereal maltiness underneath, grass, noble hops, white pepper, corn up front. Crystal clean finish, very crisp and drinkable. A great plznr.

Pilsner glass. Fairly attractive given its a pilsner. Cloudy gold, lots of carbonation, some head. Notes of hay and not much else. Quite tasty, hay, hops and possible bread combine to create a pleasant mixture. The mixture comes alive in your mouth and foams up. A nice alternative to most pilsners.

Leighton (13955) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT - picked up at Trader Joe’s in Manhattan, most likely. Pours crystal clear, yellow-gold, quite effervescent with a frothy white head. The aroma has some tangy cereal and biscuity pale malts. Light sweet flavor, somewhat metallic, with bitter and dirty hay, crispy cereal. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Fair bitter hay to finish, mild metallic tang, dry cereal, hints of biscuits. All in all a pretty fine pils.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a clear, straw colored body. The aroma is grainy with honey and flowers. The taste is okay. A mild sweet with a drying bitterness middle to end. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s unbalanced but more than drinkable.

Tastes like a watered down pale ale, smells nice but all down hill from there.

Clear Yellow, Good Head, Some Lacing. Some light sweet malt and lingering bitter finish. Nothing exciting nor is that much enjoyable. Pass it.

Amber big white fluffy head. Smells of skunky soapy planty hops. Tastes watery spicy mostly of hops. Slighty acidic possibly from the immense amount of carb. slight wheat background. too hoppy to be czech style. I’d describe this as a pale pils.
