Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. Besrt by 10/27/14 on back label. Purchased at Trader Joe's (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Clear light golden hue with 1-2 fingers of white, tightly bubbled head with good retention and leopard-like strips of lacing.

S: Light sulfur up-front with a bready light pilsner malt aromas and nice but subdued spicy, herbal noble hop note

T: Favors the malt over the hops but is nicely balanced. The bready, lightly toasted pilsner malt character is spot-on with a delicate dash of herbal, spicy hopping. Esters are not there. I don't get any diacetyl but I have a high threshold.

M: Very crisp with light-body and higher-than-expected carbonation.

O: TJ's Bohemian Lager is a really enjoyable beer and throws serious doubt into my plans to start homebrewing lagers when this can be purchased at 5.99 a sixer.

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.
