look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
12 fl. oz.
Best Before: 28.04.06
Appearance gold/straw body with a few streams of carbonation; 1-finger thick, white wispy head at pour with reasonable retention; lace is also reasonable
Smell skunk smacked me in the nose immediately; based on the Best Before date, I wonder if it was mishandled; wheat, grass, spice and noble hop sneak through
Taste thankfully, the skunk dissipated when taken past the tongue; wheat; slight metal; good floral hop in the close, but that Pepe Le Pew creeps back in the slightest measure between sips; without Pepe, itd garner a 4
Mouthfeel very even crispiness; light/moderate feel; really clean close; just a hair dry
Drinkability easy drinker, but the damned skunk causes me to cut out the nose early in consumption in order to have the best experience
Jever would be a reasonable summer beer if the skunk didnt ruin the picnic.
Serving type: bottle
