dry dry dry, to me way to dry to be a pilsner, more of a mouthful than the appearance would suggest, first approach is difficult based on appearance. so many more choices at this price point, if i could just remember the taste of Michelob Dry perhaps it would come back to me....if you are looking for dry look no further. any other dry comparisons? this is a czech.....no question.

Pours crystal clear golden beer with bubbly white 2-finger head, so-so retention. Aroma - a bit tart, cereals. Taste is rather bland, peppery hops finish. Good carbonation and drinkability.

12oz bottle into a solo cup.

A: Pours clear straw with about 2/3" of fluffy white head that sits down quickly. Retention & lacing are both minimal.

S: A bit skunky with some cereal in the back. Faint sweetness is detectable. Not much else.

T: Bitter on the palate with a slightly hoppy character. Hint of pepper. What I can only define as mineral notes. Definitely a thirst-quenching little collection of flavors.

M: Crisp, dry & slightly textural. Carb is a bit on the higher side, no much body - though there'd be no confusing this with an AAL.

O: Solid but uninspiring. I wouldn't go out of my way to come back to it, but I wouldn't turn it down, either.

Nice and dry! Taste is bitter with a very dry finish.
This is the kind of beer you can drink all day without it ever getting too sweet. For fans of pilsner only, this is not a middle-of-the-road beer.

Review: Can of Jever Pilsener: 4.9% ABV

The Classic Northern German Pilsener with the famous bitter taste.

The appearance was one of a clear golden yellow, with a pretty decent sized foamy head that stuck around, with good lacing. This Pilsener looks lovely, a very clean looking brew with a good body. Good carbonation and looked tasty

The aroma had a smell of malt and herbal hops with a hint of citrus. A strong lager smell

The taste, wow, that’s a taste and a half, initial shock, full of tastes from start to finish. Sweet grainy lager malts and hops, with a slightly metallic tang to it. Very hoppy bitter taste!

Dry grass finish with strong bitterness. Overall, a good solid dry pilsner that’s tasty, VERY TASTY!
