3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow, slightly spicy aroma. Nice carbonation and nice bitter/spice hop character. Small amount of skunkiness that brings the beer down. Nice and crisp but not as good as the domestic interpretations ive had.

A dry, hoppy pilsner with a long, refreshing finish. Would have liked a bit more sweetness to balance.

Une bonne pils... pas trop agressive à la fin...
Agréable à boire quand on a soif....

Bottle. As expected, this one is a very hoppy, very bitter pils. Very grassy, light grainy and skunky, there are even some subtle tobacco notes in here. Quite neat but ultimately one-dimensional and fatiguing to drink.

Typical German pilsner, bitter and grainy. Quite good actually, the Germans know how to do this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at World of Beer Easton. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt, sweetness and slight noble hops. Sweet and bready malt flavor with a slightly dry finish. Was expecting more of a noble hop finish for a pils. Was more like a helles.

I’ve had this beer any times while living in Germany. It’s not one of their stellar beers, but it isn’t terrible either. Very bitter hop aroma, thin body, very clear appearance. Taste is decent when cold, nearly undrinkable if it is warmer than room temperature. It is a typical northern German beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Flasche (33 cl) aus einem Edeka in Berlin. - Strohgelb, klar. In der Nase ranzige Walnuß. Antrunk sehr trocken und herb. Stark rezent. Keine feineren Hopfenaromen aber sehr bitterer Nachtrunk. - An Bitterhopfen (Hopfenextrakt, was sonst) wurde hier spürbar nicht gespart, aber für ein gutes Pils reicht das nicht aus. Jever wirkt wie die Karikatur eines Pilseners Bieres, mit derber Bittere aber ohne jegliche feinere Hopfenaromen. Paßt höchstens zu Grünkohl und Pinkel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.4 litre, on-tap in a lovely locals bar called ’Thomas Eck’ in Charlottenburg, Berlin on 17th Jan 2014.
Very surprised I’ve never written about this Pilsner before: never mind, I’ve done it now.
Comes the usual pilsner way: light golden colour, clear and bright with a snowy white head that refuses to stay very long.
The nose is herbal and grassy with a trace of citrus.
In the mouth it is dry, crisp and refreshing, those herbal and grass notes in the smell also appear in the taste. There is an underlying malty base but the hops give the beer it’s flavour.
Always been a better Pilsner than most, especially if you prefer a dry taste compared to some of the slightly sweeter ones.

Bottle at The Criterion, Leicester, on 1st Feb 2014. I’ll have to tread carefully here as I appreciate I’m rating one of danielbrown’s favourites here. Pilsener isn’t my favourite style - I find them a bit samey and yellow - but this one was fresher and cleaner than many with some lasting metal. Standard sweet malt aroma though. Probably a summer drink; this was consumed on a January evening in Leicester. So yes, it’s definitely the best beer called Jever I’ve ever had.
