Jever Pilsener

12oz single from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Nothing to report on the pour. Disappointing head and lace and the beer body is a little more orange than one would expect.
Nose is frankly pretty skunky.
Not a very clean beer. The finish DOES have a characteristic bitter Pils edge but outside of that it drinks quite poorly.
Tannin seems to come through in the finish as well.
Not an impressive beer to me at all, nor does it seem like a classic Pils. It seems old and tired as much as anything else, and in terms of the style that is a BIG problem. In a Pils I need freshness and a lively edge with youth and character. This has none of those attributes. Poor.
