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.

Nice pilsener, body bit too light though. Overall a decent pilsner. Would recommend once

PietS (61) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2015
Smells like stale beer of a dancefloor, in a good way though. Bitter, dry, but fresh pilsener. Looks tasty as well. Overall a good pilsener, especially if you like the more bitter beers, but not very exiting.

Lagerboy (1506) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
500 ml can. Clear paler golden yellow, frothy white lasting foam. Muted aroma of lager malt and herbal hop. Taste has more bitter herbal floral spicy hop, slightly sweet grainy lager malt, some citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Crisp clean hoppier classic German Pilsener.

ramboraffe (995) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
330 ml bottle from systembolaget backaplan Göteborg. Clear golden with white head. Smell is hoppy grass and hay. Taste is light malty with bitter dry hoppy grass and hay finish. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation. A really nice and bitter pilsener.

Listigovers (438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Grainy aroma, piss yellow with a foamy white head. Taste was grainy, clean, slight bitterness, pretty boring overall. Light bodied.

gopherfan99 (798) - CROATIA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle; pours a clear, pale gold with a white head; aroma is yeast and herbs with a hint of citrus; taste is a bit bitter with some malt, yeast, and hops; finish is short, dry, and bitter; I admit that I am not much of a pilsener guy but this one didn’t really get me excited enough to have a second one

flying_pig (1096) - SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2015
500ml Bottle from Whole Foods Giffnock (£2.39):
I found this one to be quite a poor beer when I tried it again here, it was actually terrible in places with far too much bitterness coming through and a really dry feel that didn’t help matters at all. The body was a thin one but this wasn’t anything too serious, it was the taste that was the real problem here with very little to it at all. I don’t think this one will be a beer I go for again.

OOKPIKABLE (168) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours very light straw colour. Tastes of grass at some hops. Not much going on here.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Can: Poured a bright yellow color lager with a large pure white color head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes is not really noteworthy. Taste is also dominated by light cereal notes with some residual sugar notes with light dry hoppy notes. Body is light with good carbonation. OK pilsner bit nothing to write home about.

Sjohnh (395) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Nothing amazing, but fine. Light Amber colour, small head, light body but not watery. Aroma is not strong, but taste has grass and sweet malt.
