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.

Hoppy Crisp and well made but boring. Had this this in Rottenburg. Page 251 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 359 out of 500 Classic Brews to go.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Pours like a translucent honey with a rapidly growing ivory white head. The hops hit my nose as soon as I cracked this open. German grassy, piney, skunky goodness for sure. A slight honey malt back balances the hops. This drinks really great - with a wonderfully light and refreshing mouthfeel. No harsh bitterness to slow things down either. Wow - this could be a new favorite summer session brew. This is the best German pilsener I have tried yet.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle. Golden clear colour with an average lasting bubbly white head. Malty and hoppy aroma. Nice dry hoppy and malty flavour with a long bitter finish to it. A good German pils.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2007
12oz - BB 30.08.07 - Aroma is very skunky and funky, Euro hops and bready malt. Pours transparent yellow with some bubbles and a big fluffy head leaving great lacing. Flavor is a milder version of aroma, Hops linger to give it some character. Palate is crisp, clean and a bit thin. I’ve never been a big fan of pilsners, but this is pretty tasty.

thewolf (11553) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2006
Very pale, clear yellow. Foamy white head. Hay aroma with mild hops. Flavours include hay and some mild fruityness. Quite dry but not that bitter at the end.

Dogbrick (9625) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Pours a clear pale straw color with a medium thick and fizzy white head that burns away rapidly. Patchy lacing. Aroma of mild hops and hay. Light-bodied and effervescent with a dry mouthfeel. Lightly bitter hops and sour fruit flavors are pretty much the only flavors. The finish is dry and hoppy with some sweetness coming through. Not as easy to drink as most Pilseners. Fairly average all around.

zach8270 (3882) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2006
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear yellow pour with a silky white head and great lacing. Aroma is very floral and hoppy with some cookie dough and grass. Flavor has a slight sweetness at the beginning with a very dry, bitter, and hoppy middle and a very bitter and lingering aftertaste. Not quite what I expected in the finish. Very nice, until it warmed up. Drink it cold.

Although the label says "Friesisch herb" it is verry bitter. I didn’t expect this.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 23, 2006
Clear golden colour, medium persistance head. The nose is more malty than expected, but the herbal hop aroma is well present. Very bitter, grassy, and dry, with average carbonation and bitter long aftertaste. Surprising beer, thirst quenching, satisfacting and enjoyable. It worths a tasting.

Stew41 (1808) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2006
Clear gold on pouring with a thin creamy head. Ok for a macro. Not much happening on the nose, perhaps faint traits of earthy malts. Palate surprises. No malts jump out, at least to my taste, but there’s quite a pronounced herbal hop, almost fern like flavour dominating the palate. Not sure I ‘get this’, or indeed approve.
