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.

I must have had a bottle that cycled way too many times. Nothing great about this beer that I can tell from this...I’ll have to go seek a draft style and re-rate.

This light northern German Pils has the distinct flavor of herbal grass and a slight bitterness that comes from the combination of unsual water and hops. It is not to everyone’s taste, and is clearly different from the heavier malty Lager and Pilsner beers of southern Germany and the full-bodied Pilsners of the Czech Republic. It is, alas, bottled in green glass and so is best enjoyed either on tap or from a closed box.

I enjoyed this pils ICE cold. Poured pale yellow/gold. The flavor was sharp and skunky. It was crisp and refreshing like a pilsner should be but much to dry. The stank set up camp on my tounge and didn’t move on. I tried to respect the history of this beer but there’s something about drinking 100 year old well water that caused continuous verping.

hopscotch (10009) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Bottle... Clear, pale yellow lager with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. Breadsy, earthy nose with hay, honey, herbal hops and a suggestion of white bread. The flavor is decently balanced with light malt and tongue-numbing, peppery hops. Light bodied and fizzy. Lengthy, metallic-bitter finish. I had hoped for more from this classic.

Sampled from bottle. This one always shows up when our homebrew club has Pilners as style of the month. This one does have some distinguishing characteristics: Light in color and taste, but very dry in finish. Flavor profile reminded me more of a Dutch lager (and it is brewed pretty close to there). Hoppy bitterness all right. A good beer to have with your meal.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2006
(0.33L Bottle) Pours golden with white head. Very hoppy and carbonated. OK, but not very balanced. Have had this on tap too, and it tastes a bit better.

Tranquillity (1451) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2006
0,33l bottle. Champagne in colour, appearance, palate, head. Faint aroma of flowery hops. Dry, so dry... Can there be a hoppier aftertaste?

A German classic. Crisp pils with assertive hop bitterness. Ungodly expensive in the US!

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2006
On draught at Birreria Paradiso: Pours to a clear golden-straw body with a medum, lasting, white head. The aroma is mild hops, grass, fruit, apples, and some bread. Taste is bitter floral & grassy hops, bread, fresh light malts. Lively carbonated, light bodied, finishes crisp with some lightly bitter hops.

Draft. Clear straw bosy with a small white head. The aroma is light and grassy. The flavor is lemon and grass. The mouthfeel is light and crisp.
