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.

Fester, weißer Schaum. Farbe goldgelb, glanzfein. Geruch malzig und erdig. Im Antrunk kräftig Hopfennoten mit Aromen von Tannennadeln, leicht brotige Aromen. Im Abgang lange Eindrücke von Hopfenbittere auf der gesamten Zunge, im Besonderen im Gaumen.

Very clear yellow. Small white head, lasting to lacing. Smells of herbal hops, metal, bread. Tastes of hay, herbal, a bit citrusy. Refreshing bitterness. Light body. Good pils.

bunget (498) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear straw body, small white head with good retention for the style. Aroma is a little skunky, grains, wet cardboard, metallic, grass. Tastes a lot better: grains with a good dose of herbal hops, mineral and metallic notes, hay. Crisp and refreshing.

Dacrza (484) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2014
DATE TASTED: April 26, 2014... GLASSWARE: Jever pokal... OCCASION: revisiting an old favorite... APPEARANCE: misty, murky golden yellow body; rocky, sporadic white head laces with wispy tentacles; medium effervescence... AROMA: holy Hallertau! metallic iron hammer a la Thor or a nine-iron to the nostrils--subtler hints of fragrant apple and pear with a bit of dough...a stronger, more forceful pilsner... PALATE: medium-bodied, crisp, almost biting mouthfeel--softens at the finish; highly drinkable, with a more lagerish body than expected...TASTE: apple/pear and good olí Hallertau; a rather simple formula that also gives off fragrant waves of other fruits... OVERALL: a pleasant variation on the Bavarian theme--a pilsner that is a bit less clean and crisp, but retains enough of its style to cleanse and pucker; refreshing yet substantial...

Jak za taką cenę to uważam że piwo jest bardzo dobre, chociaż jak dla mnie za mało chmielowe (a wiem że to miała być zaleta tego piwa), goryczka na dość dobrym poziomie. Za to nadrabia wspaniałym słodowym smakiem i niską ceną. Polecam!

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 29, 2014
This is quite possibly my favorite pilsener beer. Iím not a big fan of the style, because Iíve had, well, all other kinds of beers, but this is top notch within its genre. Only other German beer Iím genuinely fond of is Paul Aner. This then is a pils with loads of hops, in as far as it can be and still be a lager, a fine malt and a crisp finish. Not impossible to get your hands on in Scandinavia, but it could have been easier.

Bottle pour. Pale yellow with a pillow white head. Funky grassy aroma. Very light flavor with bread. Finishes with some grassy hops. This was an enjoyable, light beer. Not bad.
