355ml Bottle. So TJ’s markets 2 different czech pilseners. This one is a biiit on the lighter side for a bohemian lager, nice qhite head, large carbonation bubbles. Smell is sweet with pie crust and spices, dense malt character underneath. Flavor is spicy and bready, fairly dry with a mild but noticeable noble bitterness. Bit of bittersweetness in the finish that reminds you it is czech and not a german pils. Its good for what it is, a toastier, maltier alternative to Urquell.

This is too sweet and not bitter enough for a Pilsner, I would say. It is closer to a helles, I suppose. I don’t really care about that but I do care that this is really just not all that great. It is orange in color w/ a small white head and lacing in patches. Its nose is honey-like malt and some grassy hops. Taste, as I mentioned, is a touch on the sweet side and what little bitterness it has has a slight medicinal edge to it. It is medium bodied and not too heavy despite its sweetness and finishes w/ a lingering bit of vague fruitiness and slightly metallic bitterness. This is actually close to being a really good beer. If it were dryer and the hop character more pleasant, it’d be excellent, but this is a style where you pay for every little mistake and this beer surely does.

Nice aroma of sweet bread and spicy,peppery hops. Deep golden color wiht a thin white head. Weak off-sweat malt flavor up front. Floowed by peppery, spicy hops. Watery in mouth feel. Finishes with some sweetness and spicy hops and a little salty. Average.

A little more crisp than the Plznr from the same brewery but still not as crisp as a true Czech pils. Good beer though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head a lots of large bubbles. Faint pine aroma. Pretty big malt up front with minimal hop flavor. Also, a metallic or iron flavor that is off putting. Not good.

Pours a medium dark yellow wit a thick dense white head. The nose is clean cereal. The palate is medium body with upfront malt and s,edium hop bitterness. A good USA rep of the style.

Thin head and Pale golden in color. Slight citrus and grass aroma. Flavor is very clean and crisp. No real hops flavor but very drinkable as it warms up slightly in the glass. I’d purchase again.

JosephsBrau Bohemian Style Lager has a thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and lots of rather heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweetness, biscuit, and grassy hop oil. Taste is of those elements, as well, and the bitterness is substantial enough to impress. Yeast is picked up, too. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and JosephsBrau Bohemian Style Lager finishes dry, easy going, and refreshing. RJT

Hazy medium gold - mild nose of pils malt.and lightly grassy hops, as well as some moderate acidity and some floral notes - sadly, there is also a mild creamed corn quality - flavor is moderately.sweet, lightly bitter, wifh some tangy acidity amd grassy hops on the tail end - throughout, there are mild.unclean notes of dms and diacetyl - as wifh their other pils, the recipe has potential, but they have to clean up the fermentation.
