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.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Couleur dorée pale, apparence translucide et filtrée. Bonne quantité de mousse blanche aux fines bulles. Arômes de malt a pilsner, de métal, de levure et de houblon typique du style. Ne semble pas d’une grande fraîcheur, les saveurs de grains et de levures sont accompagnées d’une quantité surprenante de houblons. Serait probablement mieux apprécié dans un état plus frais ou servi par une chaude journée d’été. Servi en fût, au Beer Museum, Cologne, voyage Europe 2005.

(11.2 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with bkelley68, thanks Brian!) Not a German brand I’ve seen out here on the west coast. But wow, best before 28-Apr-06? That’s some serious shelf life for a pilsener in a green bottle. But I’ve kept it sequestered from light in my cave-like bedroom, so no issues with skunking here. Spicy, grainy and heavily grassy nose isn’t bad, but isn’t terribly compelling. Grainy maltiness is well-balanced by a classic German hoppiness, spicy and moderately bitter. Light bodied, but clean and crisp on the palate. Clear, straw colored body is topped by a standard white head that fades to a film. Nothing too extraordinary here, but a nice, classic German pilsener with a nice flavor and refreshing palate that makes it a good choice for a warm day.

pivnizub (8927) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2005
Bottle: Rather pale golden coloured, thin white lasting head; grassy hoppiness, wet cardboard too, in the aroma; light body, stronger hoppy flavour leading to a distinctive bitter, but not so aromatic finish. Better than the average, O.K., but not the great stuff that it was many years ago..........

Quinten (1048) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2005 very nice pisener, one of the best, no words about skunky (on tap is normal to have a hop smell on good german beers), very nice hops and bitterness 100% super smell,......I tink it is the best pilsener.

KnutAlbert (6143) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2005
An intense bitterness due to a generous use of hops. I have never tasted a pils as dry as this. Outstanding,

unibaren (154) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2005
Bottled. Aroma is light but pleasantly malty. Colour is pale pilsner-yellow, with an o.k. creamy head. The carbonisation is light. Taste is very soft and crisp. The hop-bitterness in the end is lifts the beer (and is long lasting), but apart from that, there is really nothing more to the Jever.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Tall column of brilliantly clear golden beer that forms a thick long lasting white head of fine foam. Spicy hop aroma over a light yet firm malt foundation. It comes over the tongue as bitter at first, then some sweetness in the middle with a bit of dryness in the finish. Good crisp, hoppy, refresher. Thanks to Whaleman for sending this!

MiP (13676) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Bottle. Golden colour, stable white head. The aroma is hoppy for a pils. Nicely malty flavour, very clean and crisp. Good, long bitterness. Late flowery aroma hop aftertaste. An unpretentious and great pils.

nicholai (100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Yellow gold with small white head. Smell of hops, yeast, citrus. Bitter taste with medium fruit. Not my favorite style, but a decent specimen nonetheless.

oh6gdx (20621) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Bottled. Clear yellow colour, small white bubbly head. Dry hay and vegetables in the semi-bitter aroma. Hoppy flavour with grassy and malty hints. Wellbalanced. Not too bad and pleasant palate.
