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.

Another trader joe's tick. Pours darker gold, light visible carbonation that powers a short lived head. Light grass nose. Taste is slightly bitter, followed by a wave of grass, finish is short and abrupt. Body is light and slam able.

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.

Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2014
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 (3706) - 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.

3.4
joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 11, 2013
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.
