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.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Poured gold yellow with a medium head. There are light earthy aromas that flow into a dry hop and yeast flavor that is bolstered by a nice crisp body. The finish has some length.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 8, 2007
33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pours golden yellow with a small white head that dies quickly, and nice streams of carbonation until the last sip. Citrus and grass aroma is slightly earthy. Flavor is dry and hoppy with a satisfying bitter finish that is somewhat subtle and refreshing, although a little thin. Body is thin and crisp with fizzy carbonation. Not the best pils that I’ve had, but not the worst, probably won’t buy it again though, just nothing to go out of your way for.

Bottle - 330ml. Pours a golden body with average carbonation and a nice white foamy head. Crisp hoppy aroma with herbal notes. Taste is very herbal and refreshing. Ends with a sharp hoppy finish. Very enjoyable German Pils.

jeverszeuge (643) - GERMANY - AUG 28, 2007
well - a brewery named after me... no question i have to try the beer. and it seems to me that test # 100 is a good opportunity. of course, i will top the average tasting-result. but that´s normal for the favourite beer. mid-pilsy colour. large and solid head. smell of hops, dominant, a grassy way (hops and hemp are related closely). starts with a bitter hopsy taste. mid brings some hops. the end is hopsy. ok, sometimes some malt seems to be there, too. but this is straight stuff. north-german style. maybe not everybody´s darling - but mine.

harrisoni (17149) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2007
500ml bottle. Pale gold, thick white lasting head. It’s a very crips pils, good herby hop on end, bit metallic, heavy carbonation. Very pleasant and drinkable. Nothing amazing, but clean, competent and hoppy.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2007
Light golden with a nice head and a hoppy aroma. The flavour is slightly dry, hoppy and it has a nice bitterness developing from light to just right. It’s has a tiny hint of metal, but otherwise a very quenching pilsner.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 6, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden color; fluffy white head with strong retention and lacing. Light mineral and citrus aroma; a bit of floral hops. Light-to-medium mouthfeel: nice crispness upfront; herbal and mineral notes, with a slightly juicy citrus character; pleasant in the mouth and very drinkable, but there’s also a stale / papery note in there that detracts from things; its not offensive, but it doesn’t help. Medium, cardboard and citrus finish.

downender (7846) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2007
500 ml bottle. Pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of floral hops. Flavour started with a hint of malt sweetness, before the hops kicked in. Easy drinking with a smmoth finish. A very good pils.

Draught. Bland yellow, decent head. Faint aroma. Full bodied, malty taste going into a creamy bitter hop finish.
