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.

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass, Pours a light golden color with a small white head, some lacing as well which was nice. Slightly piney and hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter with a bit of a malty finish. Overall, nothing too impressive about this beer, but it is very drinkable.

Bottle. Deep golden and still, with a standard head. The aroma is a bit starchy and seemingly corn-laden. But this drinks with a decent hoppy sting on top of a firm, malty base. (#5432, 2/7/2014)

DYCSoccer17 (3687) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
From a mixed 12 pack from Trader Joes in Davis, CA. The aroma has some light cereal pilsner malts, but also some corny DMS is present. Light floral character, too. Minimal hop character. Transparent yellow body with a smallish, white head present. Starts a little grassy and mildly hoppy. Very faint bitterness is in the middle. Finishes with some floral flavors and a little more grassy bitterness. Fair brew. Not a huge fan of the DMS.

12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. It pours a light gold color with a white head. The aroma has bready malt with light herbal, floral hops. Pretty subdued… definitely malt forward. The flavor is more hoppy with noticeable noble hop bitterness right away and good fat maltiness that you expect from Czech Pils. Pretty full bodied, herbal hops and a balanced malt flavor to sweetness ratio. Decent beer.

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 (20826) - 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.
