There are two kinds of pilseners.
- Those pilseners that taste good
- Those pilseners that taste kinda weird
This one was kinda weird. I’ve run into this before, and I’m not sure what to say about it. It resembles a kind of nuanced skunkiness. We drank a bunch of pilseners in Prague last year, and the majority of them were weird too. Maybe they use a strange yeast or something.
I think I need to get more of this, to try to nail down the flavor. I drank it warm, which was recommended to me by someone who likes this beer. You know who you are. Maybe I should try it lightly chilled. And maybe the skunkiness was just the bottle I had. I dunno.
Further updates as more Jever becomes available.
