3.38/5 rDev -5.1%
Poured from a 330 ml bottle.
It pours a golden yellow colour, and a one finger head that quickly dissolves. Minimal bubbles.
Aroma is of malts and hops, not so strong though.
Taste is bitter, and leaves back an even more bitter once swallowed. Also, a bit metallic at the tip of the tongue.
Medium thickness on the body with an average carbonation.
Overall, a quite nice beer!

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.
A-crystal clear golden straw color with a fluffy white, thick head. Lots of retention and lacing. A classic German pilsner look.
S-dry floral hop and light maltiness make for a clean aroma. Nothing sugary-sweet.
T-clean and malt forward with a dry hop bitter finish. Sharp and tart.
M-ligt body with good carbonation that tickles the tongue. Dry and tart aftertaste.
O-I like a pilsner with some hop bite and Jever delivers. Very drinkable at 4.9 abv.

appearance; fluffy bleached white head on a clear golden yellow body with lots bubbles rising at a moderate speed. Good retention with patchy chunks of lace left behind.
smell; fresh biscuty malts with honey. Hops are floral with a sting of bitter resin but generally mild.
taste; starts off with malts of stale bread growing warmer and raw dough-like in the finish before the bitter hops come in and take control. Rather nice, some alcohol is perceived in the aftertaste.
mouthfeel; a very crisp and refreshing beer, great for drinking in quantity with a dry and smooth finish.
overall; a nicely done Pils, very clean and a joy to knock down after work.

Jever Pilsener is a crystal clear, pale golden lager with a soft, fluffy, white head that has outstanding retention. It has a pilsner malt aroma. It smells light, fruity and grainy. In the mouth, it's light bodied and smooth. The finish is clean and dry. It has a light, clean pilsner malt flavor. It has a decent bitterness at the finish to zip up the taste and keep me thirsty for more. It tastes a little doughy and a little fruity. The bitterness is a little wooden and peppery with maybe a hint of juniper. I'm not much of a pilsner guy, but I found this to be quite pleasing and very refreshing. It's also nice to drink something from a green bottle that's not skunky. I would drink this on purpose in the summer.

Again I am a pils guy so this one is in my comfort zone. I have stocked this one in my fridge also. A friend got me this brew as an experimental piece and have to say I am satisfied.
Appearance is a light shade with a small head.
The slinky smell and taste that was prominent to others does not seem that distinguished to me.
The taste is smooth and feeling is parallel to the smoothness.
The alcohol taste is not pronounced which I prefer. Very good brew to drink if it is going to be a high volume consumption night.
Would recommend Jever if a pilsner fan.
