2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
True to the german style pilsner, with a tiny hint of sweet. Bright gold in color, no lacing. The aroma is pleasant, light bodied.

Mediocre Pilsener. Weak aroma with metallic taste. High herbal bitterness. Drinkable but a little too well carbonated.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Malty aroma, maybe grassy. Light and nothing special at all. Golden colour, clarified, nice white head. Looks like a classical pilsener. Taste is so dry, some gentle touches of malt. Great, strong bitterness. So grassy. Very refreshing and bitter. Light bodied and highly carbonated. Great beer, fantastic example of german pilsner.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copenhagen 17/9 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. I can understand that this is one of the many fine things that Dr. Oetker has sweetened our lives with - beside the "Ristorante Pizza Hawaii". Drawing of very small castlelike brewhouse on the label - which is by all means unexiciting and austere. Pours clear yellow with white head. Moderate lacing. Settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma reminds me of any mass-produced pilsner. Subdued sweet malts and very moderate presence of bitterness. Maybe a little saltiness. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by distinct bitterness. Actually quite crisp as announced on the label. Well balanced mass-produced pilsner which I would prefer compared to many of itís Danish counterparts.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml green bottle at home in Richmond. As íJever Pilsener Friesisch Herbí, 4.9%, BB Feb 2017. Brewed in Germany by Jever GmbH. I was recently in Berlin and, without exception, every man, woman and child was drinking this beer. OK, maybe a slight exaggeration, but a lot of people were drinking this. Itís also one of Protzís top 10 beers to try before you die. So my interest was piqued. Pours pale golden orange, clear, sparkling, diminishing foamy white head. Aroma is musty pale wood, sawdust and custard creams. Body is light with spritzy carbonation but not foamy. Taste is very light watery malt, musty metallic hops, dried flowers. Improves as the carbonation subsides and itís a well brewed, clean lager. But I donít see what the fuss is about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Jever has a thick, frothy, white head, a clear, golden appearance, some very fine suspended sediment, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of faint malt sweetness, and the flavor is of sharp, strong, grassy hop bitterness, with a background cracker malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Jever finishes crisp and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
- blass-goldgelbe Farbe mit leichter schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung
- bereits im Geruch kommt die starke Hopfenbitternis zum Vorschein,
verbunden mit einer leichten grasigen Beigabe
- passende Carbonisierung
- geschmacklich dominiert die Hopfenbitternis alles andere
- auch Abgang kommt dann auŖer Hopfen nichts Neues mehr hinzu
Fazit: Das mit Abstand beste Industrie-Pils
