Not bad. Nice bitterness and finish. Fairly decent, although not the best pilsener. Worth a try if you see it.

It’ll do. Decent pilsners don’t vary much. Not as complex or tasty as Pilsner Urquell, and less widely available.

Very bitter, but if you are sick of the ’standard’ pilsener, this is the beer to drink.

Bottle. Straw gold, good fluffy white head and plenty of condition. Good level of hop aroma with a faint hint of celery, nicely malt sweet with balancing hop flavour and an intensly hop bitter finish that is slightly chalky. In a world of pilseners that all taste the same, this beer remains one of the best of its style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Much better than the Rhineland Pilsners, Jever has intense hop bitterness complemented by light malt, giving it an overall grassy, hoppy flavor. Served too cold, you’ll never find the malt. One of the most austere beers I’ve ever had. Northern Germanic and, accordingly, not a hell of a lot of fun. Imagine bottling Thomas Mann’s novels: Sophisticated, classy, but ultimately lacking in joy.

Not a pilsner drinker, but found this refreshing. Nice mild hops and a bit bitter, but a good ’warm weather’ drink.

I don’t normally like German pilseners but this one
is the best of the lot. Smooth, but with the strong
bitter flavor to be expected of a pilsener. Dry finish.
Hops kick in at appropriate moment, and taste that
I wish could be duplicated here in the US. Has that
stale European pilsener smell but not the taste. Maybe
’cause I had a friend bring this one to me from Germany.
