Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, - JAN 26, 2013
Very pale yellow color with a thin white head. Cardboard aroma with hints of hop. Flavor is terrible, something like cardboard mixed with corn and cereals, like a bad non-alcohol beer. mouthfeel is dry and bad.

500ml bottle. Medium-sized white head. Clear golden colour. Bitter hop aroma. Rather watety taste with a spicy palate. Good low-alcohol and low-calories alternative.

kto (856) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2016 0.5l bottle from hieber, 0.80€.
pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head and a nice lacing. aroma of grassy and sulphuric hops. flavour of grass, corn, hops. less bitter and more watery than regular jever, oily mouthfeel is gone as well. not too bad for the style, though.

Calisky (2474) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2015
Couleur dorée, légère mousse. Nez très houblonné frais. Gout de houblon frais et herbeux assez sec. Forte amertume en fin de bouche. Pas mal pour le style.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 26, 2014
bottle from a getraenkemarkt in weiden. not a bad post-lunch light beer - at least has some of the extra bitterness of regular jever, lightly grassy, crisp and refreshing

jaghana (5451) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is intense on grassy and hay notes. Aroma is very bitter, again grassy, bit low body but pleasant, good for a low alcohol, long bitterness on aftertaste.

knutole (75) - Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
aroma: grassy, hoppy, smells refreshing, thin body appearance: pale colour, small head taste: a bit watery, grassy, hoppy, decent bitterness; one of the better light beers

Erzengel (7561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2014
Feinherb im Antrunk. Die Jever-Herbe ist deutlich und kaschiert den wässrigen Körper gut. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht süßlich, sehr angenehm herb, leicht getreidig.
Lecker!
