2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden beer, lively bubbled to huge, if not longlasting very light-yellowish head. Bit dusty, dry malts’ nose, dried herbs, ever so slightly grassy. Faint bitterness, near hoppy in the finish, and dry-ish maltbacking, but all indifferent, laid-down, uninspired. Carbonation, spritzy at first, then fades away. Light body, bit slick. Ho-hum Pilsener. GE has much better to offer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
DATE: December 26, 2016... OCCASION: Watching The Avengers with the family after a great Christmas weekend... GLASSWARE: Jever pokal... pours a clear, solid golden body with reasonable, streaming effervescence... a soapy, filmy, yet substantial white head occupies its crest... the aroma is metallic Saaz ping, lightly floral, bready, and mild--what could be expected of a European pilsner... a clean, nondescript lagerish consistency, easily drinkable... besides the aforementioned Saaz, light pepper, lemon grass, biscuit, light earthiness, oats and some apple... beefy and malty at its finish--not the aftertaste that wants to be left behind... not the kind of beer that will have me seeking it out again--in fact, the reason I sought this out at all was the fact that I had it over a decade ago and hoped to rate it... now that I have, I leave for others the suggestion to find something brighter, punchier, spicier, cleaner, or another comparative that specifies better... about halfway there...

Can’t even reach the level of most Industrial Macro Pilseners.
If you want a czech-inspired German-brewed Pils, go with Radeberger instead.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle @ Getränkemarkt / Schwaebisch Gmuend Germany --- Aroma of malt and floral hops. Clear light golden amber, big white head that drops to a thick cover, lace netting. Taste is malt with insufficient carbonation that moves to floral hops in a fairly long finish. Not enough here to make a good Pils. I wouldn’t buy it again.

New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle: pours golden with crappy head. Aroma is light grass and sugar. Taste is light bitterness. Very easy to drink. Nothing at all special. Not bad though.

Straight from the tap I loved this pale brew with a frothy white head. I was everything I love about Pilsners-subtle flavors of malt and hops with a little hop lingering flavor to finish up. Bravo!

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours yellow with a large white head that dissipates in to a thin ring with lacing. The nose is faint cereal. The body is medium. The taste is malt sweetness with slight crispness and bitterness. A poor example from the land of lagers. 1/2 liter can Packaged: 4/28/15; Best By 4/27/16

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unremarkable pilsner that pretty well lacks everything a good pilsner has gong for it. Looks like apple juice in the glass. Tastes like sweet corn water with a hint of bitterness. More annoying than it is satisfying. Avoid. (I wish I had).
