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.

Smooth and slightly hopped, this pilsener is easy drinking but borderline boring drinking. Had it in a bottle at a bar.

Everything one could want in a pilsner with a dash of herbs thrown in there to raise the bar.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2005
(Bottled) Straw yellow color with a smallish, lacy head. Reasonably crisp, hoppy aroma. Crisply hoppy flavor, balanced with some malt and hints of honey and toffee. Refreshing, quite light-bodied and bitter palate with balanced carbonation. A very straightforward, balanced pils, with the sole purpose of refreshing. Does it quite well, too.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2005
good dry hoppy pilsner. herbal aroma, somewhat skunky(might be the hop). good example of a bitter north german style pilsner. not bad, but i expected a little more.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Nice pilsener pour, pale gold, with a light fluffy head which receded to a float and minimal lacing. Smelled a bit skunky, though the exp. date was in 2006. Beyond that, it kind of smelled like Bud. There was a small herbal character. Tasted better with some herbal fruitiness and a good dose of hops, no noticeable malt. Not bad, but nowhere near great. Thin in the mouth, once again, its a hoppy Bud, if you ask me.

Fukito (739) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUN 21, 2005
Bottle - June 2005 Thypicall lager golden appareance, good ( somewhat fizzy) carbonatation. A nice herbal arome. Very dry, somewhat skunky ( maybe because of the bottle or mental induced because of it). A fine German Pilsner, but i expected something more of it.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. Once upon a time, one of my all time favorite beers. Still a benchmark Pilsener - dry and crisp with a sharp hop bite. A great session beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Pours very pale with a nice pilsener head. Surprisingly strong aroma of hops and freshly baked bread. Very crisp, with an excellent hop bite. More flavorful than other pilsners I’ve tried. I liked it a lot.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2005
Bottled. Quite big, frothy and lacey head. Pale golden colour. Heavy grass aroma and hoppiness. Hoppy, herbal taste with a unusual sweetness. Unusual for northern-German pilsners. Quite fullbodied for a pilsner. Bitter, but not that dry finish. Clean and crisp. If they would just change to brown glass, this would be the top northern Pilsner.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Straw-golden with a creamy head. Very malty nose and body. Sharp, fresh hoppiness both bitter and aromatic. Nice and very typical North-German pilsener. 131199
