2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow gold with small white head. Smell of hops, yeast, citrus. Bitter taste with medium fruit. Not my favorite style, but a decent specimen nonetheless.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Clear yellow colour, small white bubbly head. Dry hay and vegetables in the semi-bitter aroma. Hoppy flavour with grassy and malty hints. Wellbalanced. Not too bad and pleasant palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear straw-yellow body with moderate carbonation and a loose, sudsy white head. Aroma of lightly musty, dry hay with mild underlying pale malt richness. Dry, lightly malty character with a prominent spicy, grassy hop flavor and bitterness. This is very hop-centered, even for a pilsner. Body is on the light side, very dry and crisp. Probably too dry and grassy to make a decent session pils for me, but still a worthwhile and enjoyable beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bleh. Bitterness was way too upfront and covered any other flavor this beer could possibly have. Too fizzy and lively: to me, this is what macros (not that Jever is macro) aim for when going for "premium" because I think this is that kind of attack that people think is good.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp and dry flavor with a hoppy bite at the end. It’s not superb, but it is a decent pilsner.

Smooth and slightly hopped, this pilsener is easy drinking but borderline boring drinking. Had it in a bottle at a bar.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Everything one could want in a pilsner with a dash of herbs thrown in there to raise the bar.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Straw yellow color with a smallish, lacy head. Reasonably crisp, hoppy aroma. Crisply hoppy flavor, balanced with some malt and hints of honey and toffee. Refreshing, quite light-bodied and bitter palate with balanced carbonation. A very straightforward, balanced pils, with the sole purpose of refreshing. Does it quite well, too.

good dry hoppy pilsner. herbal aroma, somewhat skunky(might be the hop). good example of a bitter north german style pilsner. not bad, but i expected a little more.
