On-tap @ Zum Schneider in New York, NY.

Straw yellow in color, very clear, with a medium white head. Slight lacing on the glass. Mild aroma with light floral hops. Crisp flavor, medium-dry finish, and light bodied. Did not pack the bitterness or flavor that I crave from a good pilsner. Nothing wrong with the beer, there are just way better versions of the style out there.

Serving type: on-tap

So I poured this bottle of jever pilsener into my pint glass with some good tunes on

A: golden clear with a lot of carbonation. Medium size head that with great retention

S: grass and German malts is what I pick up here.

T: definitely grassy with the German malts and a nice little hop kick in there to balance it.

M: Crisp clean and dry.

O: I enjoyed drinking this little pilsener. I recommend trying a fresh bottle it's got good enough complexity for a pils and it's a good representation of the style

Edit: Had this on tap recently and I recommend to try it too if you find it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Light yellow color with a thick head with good retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of pale malt and grassy and floral hops.
Taste follows nose, sweet pale malt with herbal hops. A hint of spices. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to watery body with good carbonation.
Very sessionable and refreshing beer. A bit too light, but with clear hops notes that gives a nice dryness and bitterness.

330 ml bottle poured into a pils glass

A- Clear light straw. Light white head holds at an 1/8". Some lacing.

S- Skunk hop, dry straw malt.

T- Not a lot of flavor up front, but a strong dry malt and bitter hop finish come in.

M- Noticeable carbonation with a long dry and bitter finish. Real long finish.

O- Bad. The malt tastes stale. The finish of this beer is not pleasant, and it only makes me want to chug this down in a flash to never deal with the bitterness. Maybe that's why they chug it down in the nightclubs all over Germany. I couldn't finish this beer.
