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.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Grassy hop aroma. Flavour is hoppy with a light tone of rubber. Long finish with a large bitterness. Quite good.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2007
12oz. Bottle: Heavily bitter aroma. Smells of Pils malts, bittering hops, cardboard, dried grass, and skunk. Poured a light golden color with a medium, rocky, white head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Crystal clear. Sparkling. Flavor is heavily bitter. Tastes of pils malts at first, then gets heavily bitter with a strong, bitter, hoppy flavor. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Medium-length, very bitter finish. Overall, a good Pils, but I prefer as more floral American Pils to this.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2007
Pale yellow with a thick layer of egg-white foam at the top. Crisp sherbet aroma with some faint bread dough. Grass comes through on tasting. Dry flavour with quite a wholesome bitter finish. Tasty and easily drinkable.

jcr (2424) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Bottle. Clear pale gold body below a dense white head. Strong aroma of grass, straw, bread with a hint of pine, citrus and skunk. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. Smooth and dry. Very nice balance of pilsener malts and a bitterness that lingers, but doesn’t detract from its crispness. I am enjoying and appreciating below 5% ABV beers more and more. This is one of them.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours pale golden with a white fizzy head. Aroma of grassy hops, skunk, and sweet malts. The flavor is slightly sweet, bitter, slight fruit. Decent brew.

[bottle] Blast of hops that do not seem to be the freshest--a little cheasy, rosiny, rancid oiniony. A touch of crisp maltiness comes through as the beer warms. Dark clear straw. Unpleasant bitterness comes in early and transcends the tasting experience through a generic noble hops flavour and maltiness. The bitterness and the hops combined into a sort of bitter, rancid onion flavour. I will not be trying this beer again. Typical German Pils feel, except for the persistant bitterness.

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.

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.
