look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear gold color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hint of wheat, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of rice, and a hint of Euro yeast. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of hint of citrus hops, hint of wheat, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight rice, and a hint of Euro yeast. Overall, good appearance, rice dryness unpleasant, but otherwise a good German Pils.

.5 L can poured into a pint glass

Pours a clear pale straw color with a white bright head, good amount of carbonation, good amount of lacing, looks crisp and clean. Subtle aromas of pale malts, lemon, hay, honey, light spice as well, not very aromatic. Not much flavor, light notes of wet hay, honey, spice, finish is dry with lingering notes of lemon and grass. Mouthfeel is light with an easy drinkability and crisp clean finish. An easy drinking beer not as much flavor as other German pilsners I've tasted but I could have a few of these without complaint.

Very smooth and full of flavor. Not too malty or fizzy. Will buy again.

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.
