2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear yellow pour with a silky white head and great lacing. Aroma is very floral and hoppy with some cookie dough and grass. Flavor has a slight sweetness at the beginning with a very dry, bitter, and hoppy middle and a very bitter and lingering aftertaste. Not quite what I expected in the finish. Very nice, until it warmed up. Drink it cold.

Although the label says "Friesisch herb" it is verry bitter. I didn’t expect this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden colour, medium persistance head. The nose is more malty than expected, but the herbal hop aroma is well present. Very bitter, grassy, and dry, with average carbonation and bitter long aftertaste. Surprising beer, thirst quenching, satisfacting and enjoyable. It worths a tasting.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear gold on pouring with a thin creamy head. Ok for a macro. Not much happening on the nose, perhaps faint traits of earthy malts. Palate surprises. No malts jump out, at least to my taste, but there’s quite a pronounced herbal hop, almost fern like flavour dominating the palate. Not sure I ‘get this’, or indeed approve.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I purchased this beer on the advince of a German man with a Texas accent. Didn’t have a fridge, so he told me that Jever still tastes good warm. I am giving definate props to the beer for pulling off such an amazing feat. Certainly it would have tasted smoother and more refreshing if it was cold, but the beer was still smooth and flavourful without the refridgeration.

Bottle 0,5l at The St Albans Beer Festival 28 Sep 06. Yellow coloured. A huge lasting head. Hoppy flavour. Sourish fruity flavour. Bitterness coming after a while - and lasting. Sourish bitter ending. A good pilsener.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can’t understand much of the fuss about this one. Hoppy, bready flavour with a dry-bitter finish. Like the average IPA, this is just probably not my taste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light straw color with a noble hop aroma. Flavor is soft spicey/grassy hops with a mellow clean maltiness. The palate is very clean and soft.
