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.

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.

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.

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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear orangey-golden with a dense, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up sweet lemon zest and grassy notes over light bready malts.. clean and well-balanced. The flavor found crisp lemon, grass, and peppery notes over soft bread and lesser caramel malts.. refreshing finish.. well done. Lighter-bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. not a whole lot to it, but it was very well done.

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 (320) - 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.

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.
