Jever Pilsener

German Pilsener

Rating: B-

Poured from bottle to pint glass.

Color is a transparent straw-yellow.  It has a thin, bright white head with nice retention and lacing.  Aroma is very green bottle skunky at first, then earthy, malt and grass.  At first, the taste is honey-sweet and then gives way to a strong, but not entirely unpleasant bitterness.  There are hints of cracker and grainy malt with a bit of astringency.  Medium body with good, zingy carbonation.   The dry finish sort of sits on the back of your tongue.  Pretty average.
