500 ml. bottle picked up from a night shop in Cologne. Consumed at home. BBF 05/2014. Green glass, yay… Pilsner look, completely clear bright golden, some bubbles rising with a white head that sadly disappears very quickly. Grassy & floral hops in the nose, flowers coupled with some slightly sweet cornbread (it is a pretty enjoyable thing here) & yeast. Taste is bitter grass, green hops, floral, not hardcore in an USA way, def. more than expected, nice bitterness in a lingering way with some cornbread, starch & yeast sweetness in the back. Floral bitterness lingers, very easy to drink, this one was a big surprise. Really good, enjoyable, zero off-flavours, nothing metallic whatsoever, very easy to drink,.. Huge surprise, this is really great stuff, could drink a lot of this, I actually regret having only one bottle. Absolutely wonderful pilsner, the score on here is way too low in my opinion, why cannot all those pale lager wannabe pilsners be like this?

One of the most likely beer to have skunk. And it does. Not fermented malt or adjunct, strong typical beer flavour, acerbic, with some bitterness towards the end. One dimensional.

Aroma: typical german lager aroma. Looks straw with nice very white head. The head stays for a some time. Taste: some bitterness, but also watery. Finish is also watery with some lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overall: rather boring german pilsener.

The Jever is a great one and to me, it belongs to the "references" of Pilsner.
But in comparison to the similar "Wicküler", the "Jever" got a very strong hop and to me it´s a little to bitter-dry.

Green bottle. Pours out a light golden topped with a fluffy white head. Nose is grass sweetness touch of hops. Taste is light citrus fresh cut grass sweet malt and some spice. This was a pretty tasty pils even though it was a little warm. Thanks for bringing it Steve

Flaska från SB. Doftar friskt från gräs, säd, citronskal och har en lätt honungssötma. Lättdrucken, men för det inte blaskig. Smaktoner av säd, lime och örter. En trevlig pilsner.

Aromas of hay and cereal.
Beautiful golden in appearance with a few streams of bubbles rising to to feed the snow white bubbly head. Slightly malty and very refreshing ’soft’ taste. I’m not usually a fan of Pilseners but the german guy who recommended it is really on to something. The softness of the water I think is really noticeable (but I’m a bit pedantic about water) and I really think it lends toward enhancing the flavour and texture of the beer. I was told that the softness of the water is supposedly "better for taking the flavour" and on consideration, when comparing this to other such beers in my opinion I can see this. So I think this may be more than a mere ploy, as some may suspect.
