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.

500ml can. Pours a clear pale straw colour with a thin white head. The nose is light, with grassy, straw, and floral notes. Yup, smells like a Euro-Pils. The taste is metallic hops up front that stick around well into the finish, light grassy notes, light malt, and light yeasty notes. It is what it is. When it’s hot out this beer would be nothing to complain about.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours light golden colour, decent foamy white head. Slightly bitter, metallic taste which takes the edge off it's refreshment value but still an interesting pilsner.

Bottle. The beer wasn’t memorable but the moment was. I was at number 9 Mosley Street, that’s all I need to know about what was happening. Mint. Golden lager appearance with a thin to medium white head. Not really my kind of thing at all, herby, dry. I quite like a pilsener every now and then, this didn’t do it for me.

novakcsabi (8) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 26, 2014 does not count
quite a smooth beer, i had it from tap in Berlin. light golden body, but the head dies pretty fast. in terms of strength, it’s just a middle, or a bit lighter than it feels to be at first taste. the price was a bit high, but on holidays, we afforded it.

A good pilsner but nothing to write home about. Metalic aroma, bitter apple flavor. Just ok.

aleksander9 (398) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
Pours golden with very nice white head. Some lacing. Some aroma of noble hops, caramel and sweet malt. Light palate with spritzy carbonation. Aftertaste has a very nice noble hop bite. Overall: Well done! The hop bite in the aftertaste is the biggest i have ever tasted from a commercial pils.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
330 ml bottle in a 6-pack from TBS, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a full, bright white head. Aroma: Sulphur, grassy, peppery hops, boiled cereals. Palate: Medium+ body, moderate carbonation, a bit astringent. Flav.: Sulphurous, grassy, green, peppery hops, a little boiled cereal malt support; dry with fairly assertive bitterness and a grassy/peppery hop finish.

I drank a lot of this back in the day and memory is serving me well.

massingasetta (219) - München, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
Sehr gutes Herbes Bier. In der Kategorie Herbes Bier sehr weit vorne. Farbe und Aussehen sind formidable, der Einstieg ist gut und ein balanciertes stimmiger Körper. Der Abgang ist bei herben Biere meist gut und hier ist es auch so bei Jever.

EdwinLitzau (320) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
Bleke goudkleur, normale witte schuimkraag. Ruikt moutig en hoppig, typische pilsluchtje. Smaakt prima voor een pils.

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.
