Russo (1690) - Campinas, - 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.

motelpogo (6968) - 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 (4139) - 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.

Erzengel (3546) - 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!

bartlebier (1965) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2014
50cl bottle bb02-2015. 2,7% according to label. Rating this within the style of low alcohol, as it’s such a hard-to-do-well category. Pours with a generous soapy white head, has equal parts of malts and distinctive upfront Jever grass hops in the nose, which it continues in taste pretty much until the end, nearly playing over the typically reduced ABV cardboard palate. Overall very crisp, clean and a go-to light Schankbier cocktail option when no lambic/Weisse/Gose is at hand, especially when topped with a generous DIY splash of lemon and hop tea. - Curious about the low abv (-3%) options of people giving this less than 2.0...

Well, it lacks the body of the full version, but there is a pleasant hoppy bite to this Herbal, crisp, refreshing in hot weather.
