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...

If you want a czech-inspired German-brewed Pils, go with Radeberger instead.

Nice little snappy German pilsener style beer here. Not bad for what it is by any means.

Pours a clear golden, slightly higher SRM/darker color than most "fizzy yellow beer" and with a decently-retentive eggshell-white head.

Smell is sulfur-y at first, a bit of sweet grassiness and light grainy notes. Mild honeyed malt and bright, bready notes also coming out slightly.

Taste is well-balanced with a surprising hoppy, floral note jumping out in the mid-palate and carrying through in the finish. Light and sweet malt here and there. Simple and effective. Pretty damn flavorful.

Feel is a little on the lighter side but pretty round and works well with the medium-effervescent carbonation. Somewhat long-lasting hoppy, tea-like and floral/herbal finish and linger.

Good stuff. Seems like it's going to be a bit boring from the nose but turns out to be crushable and somewhat more well-rounded than I initially had assumed. Grab some!

That light straw yellow AAL BMC vibe, white head, 1/4". Aroma hit up some good skunk notes.

Taste was bitter, skunky, think Pilsner Urquell meets Heineken here. Adequate noble hops. High carbonation.

There's quite a few Euro lagers that are just like this. Good summer pool and golf stuff if you ask me.

Sampled back on 1/8/16. Comes in 500ml (16.9 ounces) can ($2.99) from the local Hy-Vee in West Omaha. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a .3L "DINKEL ARCKER" das boot glass.

Brew pours a golden-yellow in color with close to a 2-finger foamy/creamy white head. A decent amount of lacing is seen when sipped. Aroma is of grains and sweet malts for the most part. Taste is close to the nose with some yeast also. Lots of flavor with no harsh or bitterness. A really good tasty German brew that is medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall a really good brew! PROST!
