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.

Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Caramel and toast aromas. Crisp with sweet caramel, hay and toast upfront turning to bitter earth in the lasting finish.

Velkyal (319) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2013
pours a light amber with a half inch white head. Aromas of citrus, lemons and oranges, some grass, floral notes with a touch of bread and a trace of weed in the background. Taste is like toasted fresh bread, with grassy notes and a lingering fresh bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth and pretty good really.

shadey (2048) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear golden yellow color with virtually no head. Aroma is crisp European hops and a light cereal malt. Flavor is also very crisp, clean, and refreshing. This is a really nice and I’m again surprised by the low ratings. Nothing super exciting but mission accomplished for the style.

Lightly shitty hay and corn nose. Crystal clear amber, medium sticky head, fairly good retention.Light bodied, but full flavored. Prominent grassy bitterness. with a lemony tang. Nice intensity for a pilsner.

This beer pours a clear golden color. It has a strongly wheaty aroma but is much more bitter than you would expect from the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (12996) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear straw color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Clear golden pour with a tall white head. Nice biscuit malt aroma, sweet bread, and yeast. However, there are some strong grass notes, a weird grainy quality, and some apple. Flavor is on the sweet side with a lot of grain and biscuit notes. Moderate apple, heavy grass, and a bit of yeast. Slight bitterness on the finish.

Ataraxia (450) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Golden pour with frothy white head. Strong aroma of yeasty malts and bread followed by hints of citrus and coriander. Simple and thin on the palate. Fizzy with an abrupt finish. No alcohol presence.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Soapy sweet malt aroma, grass rather than skunk. Pale yellow with light haze. Flavor is more or less bitter, though not in a hoppy way. Relatively crisp, not up to the sharpness levels expected for Bohemian beer. Great for discount beer...not so much for Pilsners.
