COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unique in taste. The secret lies in the water, which is still taken from the same well used well over 100 years ago. The water from our well is unusually pure and soft. That allows us to add a touch more hops to create the Friesian-bitter taste that distinguishes Jever Pilsner from any other beer.

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought in Pforzheim, Germany. Particularly bittery hoppy pilsener. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear gold pour, medium white head. Clean cereal aroma, with light grass. Mouth feel and carb as up to par for the style. The finish is a littler hopier than the aroma. Slme decent green grass notes, solid pale malts and cereals....nice pils. I was impressed.

My favorite beer - each bottle is a delight. A bit of an acquired taste - probably not a fave for the US budweiser crowd.

The taste indeed is quite unique, a lot of herbal aroma. Bitter taste. But I’m not sure if this uniqueness makes it good or just strange. After first Jever I’m not a fan.

rotaman14 (122) - Potsdam, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Für ein Bier das mit seiner Herbe wirbt ist es überraschend süffig. Trotzdem natürlich intensiver Hopfengeschmack. Schwaches Aroma von Hopfen und Pinien. Bestes der "Industriepilsener", meiner Meinung nach. Erfrischend, gut.

can. Poured clear straw coloured with a lasting bleach white head. Light and sweet hay-ish aroma. Body is initially light and crisp but finishes sticky and dry. Grainy malt flavour, peppery note , slighlty sulphuric.

Mainuh_man (195) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours clear straw color with a thick white head that lingers with decent lacing. Aroma has lots of herby hops and minerals (iron and sulfur). Mild sweetness at beginning with some hints of nutty malt, transitions very quickly to herby hops. That lasts throughout, then it goes sweet again, then finishes with a long, dry, hop linger. Light body with a slick/oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, this beer is a standard german pils, definnitely better than most. Lots of herby hop aroma and bitterness, less pronounced malt aromas. Unidimensional, but quite refreshing.

Worst beer I have ever tasted. Disgusting is the only word that can accurately describe this beer. Aftertaste of dirty gym socks. Tasted on tap 08-30-2014 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
