Decent pils...not great, not bad either. Solid beer. Good aroma, head retention and mouthfeel. Would have again. Not exactly a Pilsner Urquell, though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a great white head. Aroma of herbal, grassy hops with a lot of fresh hay. The mouthfeel is dry, very dry actually, and sharp, with a flavor of bitter, grassy hops, some sweet notes and a crisp malt. The finish is even more bitter and lasts near forever. One of the best Northern Pilseners, though not everybody’s piece of cake because of the strong bitterness. I for one like it very much.

2.22.05 Kind of random thing on tap. Very solid German pils. I’m usually not a big fan of the pilseners, but this was actually pretty good. The hops work their magic here, like Penn & Teller.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear yellow Pilsener with a big white bubbly head that shows medium retention. Great aroma of hops with notes of flowers, herbs and grass over slightly grainy touches. Flavor is complex for the style with soft sweet and acid notes under a strong bitter initial flavor and an even stronger bitter finish. This full bodied Pilsener has a great and wonderfully dry mouthfeel with its consistent texture, soft carbonation and astringent finish. Clean and very crisp. The best german Pilsener I’ve tasted so far.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours with a three-finger white head that fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Clear pale amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is hoppy/skunky. Starts hoppy and bitter, stays that way at the finish and leaves a lingering bitter aftertaste. $1.95 for a 330ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours flaxen yellow and pale with an overwhelming skunky hops nose and a thin a quickly dissolving head. The flavor is fairly pleasant with a decent kick of hops on the finish, however, I just don’t get the hype surrounding this pils. There are countless other beers in this style that outshine Jever. It simply falls short on depth of malt.

The first thing I noticed when I opened it, was that it smelled like a skunk. It also tasted like what I imagine a skunk would taste like
