Josephs Brau PLZNR

CIMG7914

A Czech-style Pilsner from Trader Joe’s. What else do you need to know?

Stats:
Czech Pilsner. 5.4% ABV. California.

Dark yellow color. Head is nothing to write home about, because that’s something you write home about.

Nose isn’t too bad, but quite sweet. Malty with a faint spicey Noble hop aroma.

Mouthfeel is low-medium. It’s a bit carbonated, but not fizzy.

Boy, is this sweet. By far the sweetest Pils I’ve ever had. Grainy malt, caramel, hint of raspberries in chocolate. It’s got a decent finish with grainy malts and a surprising amount of bitterness.

It’s almost cloying, it’s so sweet. The aroma is far better than the palate. There are many good choices out there for a Pilsner, why bother with this? 79 points.
