2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Trader Joe’s Portsmouth, NH. Color is amber hued gold with slow fading head. Aroma is burnt toast and sicking sweet toffee and honey.
I paid $1.17 for the bottle so I wasn’t expecting much. It’s all about setting realistic expectations for a Trader Joe’s brew. The flavor is massive sweet honey and caramel with a light toasted grain finish. Body is real thin with a lightly creamy smooth texture. Drinkable but overly sweet.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A chlorine bock miscategorized as a heller bock. Lot’s of wooden astringency here and a trashy finish. Pours brown. Very bad even for a random category. Bottle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
JosephsBrau Prost has an extremely thick, cream-colored head, a clear, bubbly, copper appearance, and rather heavy lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy, bread crust. Taste is the same with a wonderful, prominent hop bitterness coming in near the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and JosephsBrau Prost finishes crisp, refreshing, and surprisingly drinkable. Overall, this is delicious! RJT

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Truth in labeling: "Rich and malty" says it all! Orangish pour with a creamy beige head that lasts the duration. Very frothy. Yummy maltyness, caramel, bakery. A tad over hopped. The bitterness overpowers the luscious malt flavor. It should be toned down 10-20%. Otherwise this is quite excellent.
bottle. Worth every cent and more of the $1 paid @ Trader Joes.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Dark amber in color. Somewhat sweet nose with a toasted malt aroma. Quite sweet up front. Pretty sweet throughout. Light bitterness in the finish. No balance to tone down the sweetness.
